Wood boiler for house heating project

Im working on another project with my kids this summer. I want to build an outdoor wood fired boiler to heat our house this next winter. The idea is to save as much as possible on heating the house with propane by using wood heated water from this furnace.

The water tank is 250 gallons and will rest ontop of the firebox.
The heated water will be pumped underground to the house. It will pass thru a water tube radiator in the gas furnace airduct. The heat transfer will warm the air that is forced thruout the house.

  2. Using the wood boiler for the heating system of the house is quite the clever idea. It will definitely help you save a lot on heating bills. But you just have to make sure that the water tube radiator is properly installed so that everything works out fine throughout the winter.
