    Default Toyo oil Boiler

    Is there anyone on the forum that is using a toyo boiler for hydronic heating? If so what style system are you running and how much fuel do you go through a year? Thanks guys

    I have several of them and I think they are great units. I'm using them as in-floor radiant in a concrete slab as well as tube stapled to the underside of the subfloor. I'm convinced they use substantially less fuel than the boilers I used prior but don't have any way to back that up, other than fuel prices have gone up a bunch over the years and my heating bill hasn't. I heat my office building which is around 4500 SF with 20+ foot ceilings with two of the boilers and even with last years high fuel prices ( approaching $4.00) I don't think my fuel bill was over $800 for the coldest month (includes heating all the domestic hot water as well).
    There are quite a few of these boilers in my area and as far as I know folks seem to be happy with them.

    Does toyo make a unit that you can heat domestic water and do the in-floor heat with? May have to use a heat exchanger?

    They make one for domestic and one for hydronic, I've been told the only real difference is the size of the pipe connections 1 inch VS 1.25 inch. Most folks around here use a flat plate heat exchanger to make DHW but I use and insulated tank with ss tube coil inside for mine.
