Hello everyone, i am new to the site but not new to burning wood
I have installed a few wood boiler heating systems in my past but only one of them was in a baseboard heat system all the others were central air. This is at my father-in-laws home so I was safe using him as the guini pig for my first install in a baseboard heat system. First off He has a home made wood boiler and it runs at 170* the fan cycles once every 2-4 hours. I set the the system with 2 plate heat exchangers, a 20 for the hot water tank and a 50 plate with 1" nipples for the basebord boiler. The wood boiler is placed right next to the house where thier boiler room is so the 1" pex lines i used only travel 15' so there is pratically no heat wasted through the small distance.
The system has been up and running for a few months and produces a average of 73*-76* in the home even though the t-stat is set at 80*. Now My question is what is holding the system back from acheiving the set 80* on the t-stat? (Not complaining that 73*-76* is'nt hot just curious why it don't reach 80*) And yes both pumps are working fine on the boiler system and the wood boiler.
