Water Coil in Pocono

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

Well I bought another pocono this 1 is going in the basement. I want to install the water coil for domestic but still have questions after reading other posts. From the pics on LL home page the thermal siphon could work in my basement but the question I have is will it overheat and boil or steam if I do not draw alot of how water ?? The stove will be running all day and I will only use hot water in the am and in the pm what prevents this from blowing off the pressure relief all the time ? and what kind of water temps will be in the hot water tank ? Or should I install coil for the hot water baseboard through the existing boiler ? and how hard is that to hook up ? thanks in advance

Chris,
You don't say how your hooking it up. If your using a tempering tank then you don't need to worry about popping off.

Jer, I haven't really decided either the thermal siphon direct to the hot water heater or a tempering tank. I guess from the sounds of it the tempering tank would be better. That will not get to Hot and pop off with the stove running all day ? with the tempering tank installed the pocono would be keeping that tank hot but would it keep the existing hot water heater from kicking on all the time to maintain the temp (In the existing tank) thanks

No it would not, but it would fill your hot water heater with hot water when your used it. In reality you would have 80 gals of hot water.
