These boilers offer you an efficient and enduring
ability to heat your primary residence, vacation home, hunting
cabin and even your business if you're inclined to be off grid
or independent. Both of these boilers require no electricity
to operate while still maintaining accurate temperatures and
consistent heat throughout combustion.
When you combine these boilers with gravity systems
connecting to cast iron radiators, in floor heating or vertical
"baseboard" and allow natural convection to make the
water flow, no pumps are necessary. With the use of manual valves
on your radiators you can adjust the temperature to suite your
needs. Your system can be as off grid as you desire or you can
use 12V power for your pumps from solar panels. You can simply
use the power directly from a battery bank and install the proper
pumps or convert the power to 110V and use existing pumps.
If you are considering a remote hunting or skiing
cabin for installation, you can put anti-freeze in the boiler
system and it will be waiting for you whenever you arrive to
enjoy it. Simply light a fire and let the gravity system naturally
begin to heat up.
is excited to offer you these options and several
more that will be uploaded to the website. We have some interesting
R&D projects going on right now that will allow you to generate
electricity while heating your home, a residential CHP unit,
in a variety of ways. Electric generation using CHP at the residential
level is the next evolution in the industry which we will be
supporting heavily. Many units are set for release this year
and into next year.
Along with this other options are coming, some
of which we have been using for years, that allow you to put
your heating system off grid. For example, our Vigas boilers
only require a maximum of 3 amps at peak operation, so a pure
sine wave inverter can allow you to power it from a solar bank.
We will put together some options here for you to install with
your new boiler to upgrade your existing system.
