Would I be able to use this same setup on my oil boiler (using the boiler's drain and pressure relief)? It is costing me 100 dollars a month just to run my boiler for my hot water needs. It would be nice to keep the boiler hot using a coil on my stove instead of using, oil.
Do you have a stand alone hot water tank that your boiler heats up or a coil in your boiler? If you have a tank why not just plumb it into your coal stoves' coil and turn the burner off!

I have a coil in my boiler, so I would have to heat the boiler water. I could get a separate tank if it was necessary, but I thought that maybe it would be possible to just supplement the boiler with heat from the coal stove.
