In the remodels I have done with open combustion inside a house we were required to have the 2 vents I normally put 1 in the wall close to the ceiling and one in the wall at the floor with each being ~1 sq ft vented to the attic on single story. This is for fresh air not exhaust and I was told having the 2 zones helps to mix the air in the room and the ...

If smell comes when heat turns on, could it be the dust filter? Have you ever replaced the dust filter associated with the fan? If you have, does the dust filter smell like cigarettes also? If you have not can you please post an image of dust filter when you take it out? Just for prurient interest.

Thermostatic controllers typically become calcified over time. This can result in the temperature not setting properly when you adjust it or even vibration and/or knocking in the valve. Sometimes just turning the knob rapidly several times from stop to stop will loosen things up. The manufacturer also provides videos on cleaning the valve which you should ...

Look up the installation manual for the HS Tarm OT-70. In the 70s, these were hooked up to pressurized hydronic systems. To prevent boiler explosions, they were required to be installed with at least one zone having an air-conditioner like thermostat -- above a certain temp, the zone opens, and the entire set of radiators works to radiate heat. It isn't ...

In the 70’s we did install heat loops in wood stoves , they were open tank pumped units. Why open tank pumped? The system had to be open to prevent a pressurized system because pressurized systems are boilers and boilers are regulated, require steam certified pipe fitters. The systems we used had check valves that allowed water in the heated tank as it was ...

A woodstove would never be connected to a cylinder in such a fashion. The only use for the thermostatic valve is to control the output of the hot water tank to the user and a common setting is 46 degrees C. The hot out pipe of the woodstove should have the combined P&T valve fitted with an expansion pressure vessel to allow for the normal water ...

Is there any other place where you could use this high temperature water? Is this for a residential or commercial building? What is the maximum allowable water temp in the cylinder? An alternate to dumping the hot water through a pressure and/or temperature device would be to install a fan coil to reduce the excess water temperature and not introduce any ...
