I checked out the charmaster site and they are pricey, but I feel all the wood burning boilers, and furnaces are expensive. The manufactures want to cash in on what you are saving in fuel also. I have a Buderus wood boiler that new today costs over $5,000 it does not come with any controls, but it is all cast iron. I don't have any complaints. I just need to figure out how to plumb together the oil and wood boilers to make them work efficiently.

JOB
Here is a simplified sketch on how to tie your Wood Boiler to your Oil Boiler. It should be self explanitory.
Your Buderus WB should be able to be equiped with An Aquastat to control your water temp. with in reason. It may either vary draft, or cycle a combustion fan.(didn't check). The sketch is presuming that you have multiple zone pumps, but if valves, you will have a single circulator pump between the oil boiler and Distribution Manifold. The aquastat controling the circulator on the WB can also be tweeked, depending upon the type of radiation you have. There are also some other issues with this system that need to be addressed if you have low temp radiant heat, like I have, but I won't get into that. You may also have to put in a bigger expansion tank ???
A safty note:: make sure your P&T valves are in working order, and also the pressure and backflow preventer is working.

Loren thanks for the sketch. I see what you have done. I use four zone valves so I would need another circulating pump if I was to plumb by your sketch. I am going to add two zones of in floor heat And I am not sure if I would use zone valves or add two additional circulating pumps.

I have a drawing of how I want to plumb and wire the two boilers and only use one pump. Would you be willing to look at that and give suggestions. I need to put together a better explanation of what I am doing.
