|I'm planning to build a new heating system for next year that burns wood and waste oil.
1.What is the advantages of an outdoor boiler vs an indoor hot air system?
2. Has anyone used oil instead of water in a boiler?
I know we use heated oil in plastic injection molding to get to temps over
200 deg. F.
My thoughts on this is that oil won't freeze if unit isn't running.
Oil won't rust out the unit.
3. I'm thinking of having two different fire boxes, wood on one end
and wasteoil on the other end vs one all the way thru the unit.
My thought on this is I can make the fire boxes replaceable if seperate or
removeable for repair if they would ever start to leak.
4. Is it best to insulate the boiler if it has a building around it that is insulated.
I would like imput from anyone that has info on this.
