Many thanks for all the helpful advice.  My termocamino stopped working after the last earthquake tremor but the local plumber has just repaired it and told me that a family in the village wants to sell their system for wood and pellet which provides heating and water.  He thinks I should keep my system but it uses a lot of wood/tronchetti to reach the required heat to start the pump and to keep it going.  Also the four sides of glass get badly smoke stained despite using Diavolina cleaner.  Fully agree that it is important to have an alternative heating source as my Morse wood burning stove in the kitchen was a life saver when there was no electicity for 10 days last month.  Leaks in the roof had short circuited the internal system.  My eternal thanks to the Emergency Service Firemen from Lecce, Milan and Potenza who repaired the electricity with aluminium foil and insulation tape!

It is quite a consideration, that these 'sophisticated' stoves do depend on electricity (to run the pump which circulates the heated water). Even the woodburners which deliver heated air cannot be run very efficiently without electricity, and pellet stoves give up the ghost after five minutes without power. Gas, oil, wood or sansa boilers also need juice.

It's not common to be without power for more than 24 hours - but it happens, and without one open fireplace or a simple woodburner one does get cold very quickly.

Looking at the 'catalogue price' of a woodburner with the facility to drive radiators is not a very illuminating activity. You need to think about (get an estimate for) the associated pipework, radiators, tanks and any control gear needed to integrate this system with any others you perhaps have already. The woodburner seller just wants to wedge you into buying his product - he isn't going to alert you to the 'extras' which you'll need to spend to make it function! The boiler is probably about a quarter of what you'll commit to if you buy it.

I'm with Shebar, think very carefully before loosing your open fire. I had  a gas boiler and a Sansa burner but once the electric goes the only thing I had was the open fire and I used it for light, heat, cooking and hot water. It's not the most efficient but it is ( if you've got wood) the most reliable.

Forgot to mention you'll also need to size a termocamino correctly for the radiators it is required to heat.
