I have some questions for you on the instalation of your Harman insert. When you can get back to me please.
Sorry for missing this yesterday coalwarmth....
We bought the house in Aug 2003 and it was already installed. I have a bunch of pics of the stove and that's it. I have to draft measuring meters, exhaust temp thermometers, etc...
Even when it's near 70degrees outside.....My fire doesn't doesn't go out (external brick chimney with metal liner running up inside) - but it's AWFULLY HOT downstairs. My wife keeps the two young boys shirtless and in shorts upstairs in our split-level home during this ugly warm stretch that NE Pennsylvania is dealing with.
I keep the little magnetic thermometer stuck to the outside of the box at about 250-300 degrees on the warm days ( with ALL windows in the house open! ). When it finally gets cold.....I keep it between 300 and 350 degrees. When single digit cold comes, 375-400. All that is controlled by my spinner draft knob. Right now, she's burning with barely a 6th or a 5th of a turn open from completely closed. It's barely breathing......But she never goes out!
I LOVE this coal!!!!!!!!!!
I'll try to answer whatever questions you have though.!
