Consequently, how does an outside boiler work?
Outdoor boilers work on a very simple principle. A heat exchanger is installed in your current furnace that transfers the heat from the water to your furnace blower, and the heat produced by your outdoor boiler is then circulated throughout your home.
Beside above, how much does it cost to install an outdoor wood boiler? Outdoor wood boiler costs start at about $6,000 for a small unit with installation and rise to more than $12,000 for a large system that also supplies usable hot water for your home, garage or pole building, an outdoor spa or pool.
Also know, how far does outdoor wood boiler need to be from house?
Most people place their outdoor wood boiler between 50 and 300 feet from the building they're heating but, as you can see, there are a few factors that determine where you should put it.
Are outdoor wood boilers legal?
The EPA has banned outdoor wood boilers. These new regulations EFFECTIVE NOW allow homeowners to only install "high-efficiency" outdoor boilers. Those "high-efficiency" units are VERY expensive and quite complicated to operate and maintain.
