Wood stove with water jacket in a well insulated house
I am building my house and want to include a wood stove with water jacket.
The house is well insulated, there is 30 cm of insulation in the walls.
The wood stove will be placed in the living room, which is about 70 m2 (including the kithcen), this floor is directly connected with 50m2 on the floor above. Which gives a total of about 250m3 of room to heat directly. In addition there is a basement and two small cottages that I would like to heat with the water. And the tap water as well.
What I foresee as a problem is that the house is to well insulated so that the living room will be sufficient heated long before the water heat storage tank has reached its needed temperature.
A solution could be a wood stove with extreme low energy output directly to the room, mostly to water.
I have found a Termorossella that gives 3 kw to air and 10,5 to water. But this might not be enough??
Or maybe it is possible to insulate the oven so that it will not transfer so much to air??
Do you have any solutions to this?
Yours sincerely Odin
