Corn Boiler and Domestic hot water
Have a customer who is thinking of installing a corn boiler and wants to add a hot water coil above his furnace, heat the garage floor heat, and heat his domestic hot water. He has a new 80 gallon electric water heater and wants to continue to use it so when the boiler is not going he still has hot water. What is the best way to use the water heater and still have the corn boiler heat the domestic hot water. I was thinking of a plate heat exchanger or and indirect ahead of the electric but money is also some what of an issue? What do you guys think?
