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?

I was told it was a couple years old he ordered it that way out the back. Also I got someone come at the beginning of the year to help me hook it up but in the meantime I need to get a chimney and was wondering where to be best to go out through the wall or up through the roof.

:baby: A little background on the boiler I've been planning this garage for quite a while and for the last eight years a friend of mine was going to hook it all up for me well now that I got a built-in and it's there, now he don't have time imagine that. I wanted to go with the DS I know at least five other people that have this boiler and they love it. Heck I bought this in the spring of this year before I even built the garage. So yes I have high hopes for this I'm going to put antifreeze in it hook it up inside the house with a heat exchanger and then somehow have my oil boiler talk to my garage boiler. Probably going to put it on a constant circulation and I also have about 11 old farmhouse radiator put in my garage as a dump Zone whatever that means. So yes, definitely rookie and I'm not about to learn hydronics in a week so I'm going to have to wait patiently so I can have someone to put it in.

Do your chimney however you want. If you go out the wall make sure you have enough room behind unit for barometric damper.
Dump zone is simply a zone controlled by high limit aquastat (usually set around 200°F as water boils at 212) that will pump hot water from the boiler thru any large heat exchanger or your garage zone to prevent water from boiling and 'steaming off' thru the pressure relief valve and overheating the boiler.
