Real off topic here, but thought I'd give it a shot.

I heat my house with an HS Tarm. Burn the wood, heats the water, and through the radiators it goes. It's an old finicky biotch but it does the job. I just don't think I have the air mix right. Seems like I have to babysit it too much to keep optimal heat in the house.

Anybody got one?

You talking about the outdoor wood boilers ??

nope I heat my house the old fashion way....

wood stove in the basement. I like being able to throw a couple logs in while wearing just my thong.

It's OK....It's not your fault !!!

I have the same thing. Not the thong, the boiler. It is an indoor unit. Wood fired boiler that ties into the same chimney my fireplace uses. Baseboard radiant heat.

My unit is just forced air wood furnace..

My brother used to have an indoor boiler system like yours... one problem he had was overheat after a few hours use. House would get up to temp...water shut down..fire stil going...before he knew it, it would go into overheat. We ended up plumbing a line into the garage floor. It was a pain...but he needed a new floor anyways.

We then put a high limit switch on the boiler that would run the water into the garage floor just before an overheat. Problem solved. Plus the garage was fairly warm.

You may also consider doing this but just put pipe underground a couple of feet. Or in the sidewalk...or... anywere you can get ride of excess btu's.

It's OK....It's not your fault !!!
