Backup oil boiler choice?
I have a heatmor outdoor wood boiler. I am looking to install a backup oil boiler into my hydronic system. I have a 2000 sqft house with in floor slab radiant heat downstairs and baseboard radiators upstairs. I was originally going to put in a toyotomi oil miser om-180. Now I'm thinking this is not the best option because they are designed to run at 130F. My wood boiler runs at 180F. I am thinking I need to purchase a boiler designed to run at 180F otherwise I don't get heat out of my baseboards. I know there are other options such as changing mixing valves, installing heat convectors made to run at lower temps, etc..... I know people will prob need more info but hopefully I can get the ball rolling on a discussion. Thoughts?
