radiant wood heat questions
My question concerns a wood stove radiant heat set up.
If you would look at the attached diagram and let me know if
there is a better way to plumb it?
The hot water heaters are used just for storage. (I found
them on the side of the road)
1. Should I have a heat trap on the return line from the
floor loops ?
2. Should I connect all the tanks to the makeup water? And
should there be a heat trap in the makeup line?
3. Would it be better to run the circulator pump off the “hot”
line from the wood stove? When the pump is running I tend to get a little bit
of banging from the thermo siphon.
Any suggestions anyone would have would be great.
