does anyone use one of the rinnai wall furnace I bought a 21000btu- at my altitude its more like 16500btu, I figured worst case it would be on 24/7 and use 1350wh of power.

    No but I use the Empire propane furnace from Home Depot. It uses zero power. I have not used it in 10 years and back 15 years ago it was required as our building department required a 2nd source of heat besides the wood stove. These days I tell my clients to use a mini-split and try and get that approved as the 2nd source. Good Luck!

    It's temporary just for two years, I'm avoiding 240 at all costs.

    Why? It is pretty standard to use 240 these days. Is it because you are building?

    Yes I'm building and I have no need if all it is for is a well or a mini split, I live @ 10100' so ac maybe 3-5 days out of the year, and a well can easily be pumped into a cistern with 4 panels and a good D.C. Pump, I haul water less than a mile now from a spring.i did however take your advice on a D.C.frigde and a D.C. Freezer so I can shutdown my large inverter and just use a 300w all the time. So at 1000$ or less for a 24v inverter 3000w vs 4K for a good 240v3000w  inverter/ charger  can get a whole well pump that can be run from multiple supply, I'll use a 11000 watt array and a dmppt450 for heat and ac and have 10kw of usable power per day even on the cloudiest day. I'm building a net zero passive home. Just don't have the ability to cut wood anymore

    I sure would love to know how you get 10Kw out of an 11Kw array on the cloudiest day ;)
