Homestead with Multi Fuel Split System Water Heater

Homestead with Multi Fuel Split System Water Heater

Fuelled by  wood, multi-fuel, coal or oil with a thermostatically controlled burner. We have a 425 square metre two story homestead in the Wairarapa that needed heating efficiently, but didn’t know what to do.  The team at Marshall Heaters came for a site visit and recommended a Marshall Split System with wall mounted radiators.  The system they designed enabled us to run on firewood, coal or diesel.  There was no hard selling, just good advice.  They even assisted with recommending the right size radiators for each room. We now have a multi-fuel system where we can separately control the heat in individual rooms and also the two levels of the house. Apart from the great product and excellent aftersales service, the other reason we would recommend the Marshall heating system to anyone is that we couldn’t find another system that could compete on heating efficiency like the Marshall.

When designing our home we were looking for a water heating system that not only was able to supply domestic hot water but to have the ability to do multiple other functions as well. Being in a rural situation we quickly settled on the Marshall option. This option gave us the ability to not only heat domestic hot water but also run our underfloor heating, heat the spa and we even put in a heat exchanger to add some heated water into the pool. I’m pleased to say that after 12 years we have not had to use our back up LPG gas infinity system once. The Marshall has been a constant source of hot water which has kept us with our family of eight needs! The supply of good dry wood is so important and because we run a building business we have managed to meet this requirement over the 12 years. In the summer months we heat the water once every two days, every day in the winter / shoulder seasons. I’m very happy with our decision as are our teenagers with their long showers. Wayne Bishop

198 square metre home. We would thoroughly recommend Marshall Heaters. We installed one in our award-winning eco house which is totally off the Grid and is made of 96% glass. We connected the fantastic Marshall Heaster to our solar hot water panels for all hours water, so we do not have to do anything most days to get free hot water. When I tisi overcast then we can light the Marshall and within 20 minutes we have not water. We also connected it to our underfloor heating for off the grid central heating! Meryl has always been fantastic and very honest and easy to deal with. We also won the Registered Master Builders 2012 BRANDZ sustainable homes award and the 2012 Future Proof Building Energy Efficiency Award for our house – Waitoki. Unlike many companies promising the world, and with slick advertising, Meryl puts her energy into delivering old fashioned good service with a fantastic product. I thoroughly recommend both Meryl and Marshall Heaters especially if you need the product to work reliably and general a lot of hot water without any problems. As expected from the extensive surface area of the water jacket, the water heats very rapidly. Thermosyphoning from the storage tank commences within a few minutes of lighting the fire and the design of the system allows stored energy to be quickly distributed around the house. The Marshall Split System water heater is the most effective residential system we have encountered. We now have a multi-fuel system where we can separately control the heat in individual rooms and also the two levels of the house. Apart from the great product and excellent aftersales service, the other reason we would recommend the Marshall heating system to anyone is that we couldn’t find another system that could compete on heating efficiency like the Marshall.

1920’s Farm House Transformation

Installing a Marshall Heater totally transformed the sprawling 1920’s farmhouse we live in near Havelock North. As third generation caretakers of the family homestead, as a child, I remember the efforts my grandparents and later my parents went to, year in year out, trying to warm the house in winter.  It was built with six fireplaces but all but two fell by the wayside.  Next came the electric heaters, then eventually heat pumps. None did the job.  The house was still cold.  Some bedrooms were like ice chambers.  Power bill were eye watering. Concrete was the problem.  As beautifully built as it is, the house is like a bunker.  Everything is concrete.  The roof, the suspended floor, every internal and external wall – all solid reinforced concrete. God knows how many times the place was painted inside.  In winter you saw last summers paint job peeling under the relentless condensation. In 2018 the family decided to invest in a boiler system with radiators in nearly every room.  This was a big, complex and extremely difficult project. The gap between suspended concrete floor and the ground under the house in many areas is just 30cm so installing pipes to radiators was hard and very, very unpleasant.  Tunnels had to be dug to fit a plumber working with pipes. We looked at boilers from Britain, from Austria, Canada and the United States.  They had all sorts of bells and whistles.  Even the ability to use your smartphone for some functions. But none could give the guarantee we wanted:  If we burned hardwood, plentiful on the farm, would the firebox last more than 5 to 10 years. It was the first question I asked Meryl at Marshall Heaters.  She told me there are original Marshall fire boxes still operating after 40 to 50 years.  The secret was simply the Marshall water jacket system. After a lot of research we elected to go kiwi made.  We wanted something simple, economically, sustainable and efficient.  We chose a Marshall Integral 1360L boiler, what the central heating firm supplying the 14 radiators described as a “water boiler on steroids”. There’s no was to window dress the fact this was a difficult, costly and complex project.  But we have never regretted it. The plumber installing the system was a hero.  Meryl was too. We no have a warm and cosy house.  For the first time in its 100 plus year history, the whole place is dry.  We don’t even need to the two remaining fireplaces.  It’s unbelievable the difference the Marshall has made. I am happy to vouch for this, Phil Kitchin, Havelock North
