- OSE's Open Source, Modular Hydronic System in use by OBI
- Currently is focused only on heating (Double check this)
- Uses the Hydronic Stove as a heat source
- Is solar thermal water panels also included yet (need to look/ask around)
Potential Future Areas Of Work
On Cooling Addition
On Geothermal Heat Pump integration
- Complex, but may be doable
- See Geothermal Heat Pump
Combining the system with a hot water storage tank
- All heat (from the Hydronic Stove, a solar thermal panel, waste heat, etc) is "fed in" to a tank of the working fluid
- This can then be used directly, or be used to heat air, water, or another fluid
- Also may allow for some Thermal Energy Storage
- Heat exchangers, and most likely custom tanks would make this quite complex
- It may help with modularity, compact-ness, and efficiency

Hydronics Install Prior to Stove Connection
Simple hydronic circuit for both 1/2" in-floor lines (1000 feet in a single zone) + a wall radiator outlet (3/4" tube) using oxygen barrier PEX. Parts cost of $500 approximately for the hydraulics control panel - $100 pump, $100 divider valve, fittings, gauges.
Prior to In-Floor Tubing Connection
In-Ground Heat Tubing Install
Prepare to Put in Wood Floor
Floor will be stained 1"x4" lumber on 2"x4" rails
- $4600 - 20 year warranty - Glenwood 7020 - 
- $3600 - 5 year warranty - says Gasifier type - water heat exchange medium - Slovak import - 
- $3500 - Biasi -  - Remaining exhaust heat is given-up in a wide finned, self-cleaning passageway before exiting the boiler.
