Got a new garage and a new boiler. Would like to get it hooked up for this year having difficulty finding someone to do it. Here's some pics of what I got so far.

Where are you located?
How will hot water be distributed.....
•Suspended exchanger/fan?
•Baseboard?...
•Radiators?...
•Other?

See your new building is uninsulated now. Water/hydronic system will have freeze issues without either anti-freeze or else constant firing once started. Straight water would be vulnerable with extended power loss also. Standby generator and quality fuel is a must, as well as a large enough supply of coal to not run out of.

So if I ran antifreeze can I run it to a heat exchanger to heat inside my house. I have an oil boiler in the house. Just looking for options. I also was planning on using mainly firewood but I ran into this site about 2 weeks ago and been reading them start thinking heck with the firewood just use coal

I just installed a ds aquagem 3200 in my house for radiant/hwbb. Yours looks like an earlier model the flue exits out the back?
