General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / Boiler & Garage Up in Flames
« on: February 17, 2020, 01:57:04 PM »
Hey all,

On Jan 16th, I got a frantic call from my wife.  Something malfunctioned with the boiler,  and the fire department had to be called.

I had my boiler covered with a wooden storage barn, the fire got to the roof and the wind pushed the fire to my garage.

I never really paid attention to my property insurance and found out that my 30x40 garage was only covered for $15k.  I strongly encourage everyone to review their property insurance.  Also anything with an engine is NOT covered under personal property and should have its own policy rider.

I do not know what happened, I'm assuming the front solenoid/ damper got stuck and did not close.

If anyone has a gassifier that they are looking to sell let me know......

General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / Started the Wood Boiler

I wanted to thank everyone for this wonderful forum. 

I purchased a Ridgewood 6000 2 years ago, and started it up last weekend 10/21/17.
I took me a little over a year of planning everything, from plumbing design, pump selection, boiler piping, shed design 16' x 24' etc.

This is the first time that I don't mind when my wife turns up the theromstat,  used to be set at 62 at night and 65 during the day, now I have it set for 70 at night and 72 during the day.  My garage has radiant piping that I plumbed in with the system and that is set at a very comfortable 68/65 degrees. 

Again thank you to everyone who contributes to this forum.
