Discuss Wood Boiler Pre Heat Tank in the Renewable Energy area at UKPlumbersForums.co.uk.

    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. 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.

    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?
