  1. HYDRONIC HEATING SYSTEM FOR REMOTE WORKSHOP

    A friend of mine is looking to build a workshop on his property. My project has piqued his interest as a means to provide a heating system. It doesn't get very cold where he's at, but a couple months out of the year will see chilly nights in the 40's (it's a desert region in southern CA). He is grid connected AND he has well over 10 KW of solar - so, he's good on the electricity side of things. I thought it funny, but he still wants the generator. I suggested he get a battery system for backup and ...

  2. PROJECT UPDATE (11/30/19)

    The blower fan and power supply arrived. However, the heavy shelf I ordered to use as the base will not arrive until next week. Once I have everything in hand, then the next steps will be to carefully mount the furnace and combustion chamber drums on one end of the base, and mount the blower fan under the base and centered under the furnace drum.

    The blower fan is an unusual design that requires a fair amount of precision for proper mounting. Once mounted, a shallow pan will be placed ...

  3. PROJECT UPDATE (11/23/19)

    I had ordered the part I described in the previous post. However, it proved to be woefully inadequate to serve as a foundation for the system. So, I returned it and ordered a 12 gauge steel shelf 2' x 3' sold individually as part of a heavy duty shelving system. This unit will arrive early next week. I can commence shortly after it arrives (assuming it proves adequate). I also purchased the high quality 24v blower fan I mentioned in a previous post complete with power supply.

    The ...

  5. PROJECT UPDATE (11/12/19)

    Just sharing promising results from research. I had problems in finding cost effective materials to construct a base for my system. I got good results only after I began searching for products to repurpose for this application. I found steel trays that may be ideal. The width and height is perfect, but is longer than I intended. However, the additional length will accommodate a battery, inverter, and connections for the steam and feed water lines. While longer, the dimensions still allow my system ...
