Helo Harold, I think you are spot on re the wood gas thing. For sure the flues cannot be mixed and unless we sink into the dirty thirties I would also agrre tht the wood fired concept wouldf quickly give way to gas due toe the workload. Anyway, I live in the desert so spend most of the time trying to dissapear "heat". Am working on an old Victorian house in central Canada, with hot water heat via gas fired boiler, nad would like to know about current available systems. It would also be nice if there was an alternate "electric".
Can anyone give me a shortcut to current reliable UL/CSA/AGA approved manufacturer's of residential, gs or gas/electric, hot water boilers, low pressure, 15 psi......?

: I am impressed that Tarm can reduce emissions. They have a quality product. They solve a problem of using two chimneys.
: However, there is never a statement of the efficiency of the gas portion or oil portion alone in their multi-fire units. Most folks get tired or injure themselves with the chain saw within three years, then the unit becomes a one-fuel unit. A heat output of 180,000 btuh heats a 7000 square foot home built to today's standards; they claim it will do a 4000 square-foot home. I don't know if this is a roundabout way of stating efficiency.
