    Default Wood Boiler Pre Heat Tank

    I am looking to add a pre-heat tank to my existing setup which is a Daikin Altherma ASHP (EKHBH016A). I have attached a diagram and was looking for some advice to see if the proposed setup would work considering the heights and distances involved.Wood Boiler Pre Heat Tank-20160718_221838.jpg

    The wood boiler is a snowdon 30 multifuel boiler (30kw)

    The secondary storage tank is quite a distance away (22m) and situated in a basement 2 meters below the wood boiler.

    Comments would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    are you hetas registered? if not you cant do the work
    IMPORTANT:
    Carbon Monoxide can be produced when ANY fuel is burnt, including oil, gas, wood and coal.

    Want gas safety or boiler repair advice? :
    Please supply your Gas Safe / Oftec / Hetas Number, DIYers, odd job people and have a go heroes need not apply, and remember any fuel burning appliance can kill

    NO, for lots of reasons! As well as Shaun's comments

    Also based on your sketch, I am afraid that we won't be able to give advice because of the possible dangers. You need to employ a qualified professional that is appropriately certified in solid fuel (not exclusively HETAS, there are others ) as well as heat pumps.

    Ther aren't actually many of those people about - what's your postcode?
