I just bought a back vent Pocono and am in the process of installing it.
I am installing it in the basement.
It sits on a concrete floor and is backed up against a concrete block wall.
I have a quesiton.
Since the vent comes out the bottom it passes very near all the motors and power cords.
In some cases the clearances are so close there appears to be nothing I can do about it but I can put a heat shield up above the vent which would shield the feeder motor and the feeder blower and the thermostat.
Is this necessary or not?
I have put a hanger on the hopper which keeps the cords away from the vent.
