Would the boiler heat exchanger when it's cool draw a significant amount of heat from the water circulating in the loop from the storage tank in the series situation?
I had looked at the link in the John Siegentahler article, but I have a hard time figuring how that would work in my setting. I currently (without the storage tank) have a loop with the boiler and its cirulator and 2 closely spaced tees. Attached to one of the closely spaced tees is my dead-ended/capped supply header with all supply pumps attached. Attached to the other closely spaced tee in the boiler loop is the dead-ended/capped return header.
From John's article, would I just make a loop through the buffer tank that is attached to the closely spaced tees of the boiler lopp and then attach the supply and return manifolds with closely spaced tees to that buffer tank loop like he shows for the high temp zones in the upper right of the diagram?
It would be tons more work for the plumber and much higher expense for me, but if it would make the system much more efficinet, I would definitely have it piped that way.
