Leisure Line Boiler??

PostBy: mmroadster On: Mon Oct 12, 2009 2:29 pm

Does Leisure Line make a coal boiler? I have a Pioneer top vent now but I'm having trouble getting heat through the house. It's a two story with baseboard hot water originally so no vents other then the few I was able to cut in for the first floor, the stove is in the finished basement so forget getting much heat to the second floor. I was thinking just changing to a boiler and utilizing my baseboards would be the best solution. The only other choice is to move the stove to the first floor and go with a power vent. Ideas???

I would remove the top, install a hot air jacket, and run directly to a couple floor registers. This would send about 80% of the heat directly to the first floor. Cost about $325.00. If you make your own jacket you can save about $125.00.

If you got a hot water heating system then IMHO I think a coal fired boiler is the only way to fly. Just hook it up in parallel with your existing oil fired boiler, throw a circ in line to run 24/7 and let the thermostats do their thing.

LL doens't make a boiler.
Yes, a heat jacket on your stove makes a big difference with some duct work, BUT, since you already have hot water baseboard, a boiler should be considered and it would keep it much more even temps.

I had the same problem (and still do), but the heat jacket for my Hyfire really helped getting more hot air upstairs and considering a boiler system.

I think I'm just going to move my Pioneer from the finished side of the basement to the furnace room where my boiler is. I'll be able to duct heat better to the first floor and put a coil in for hot water. That should keep me from "cooking" in the basement also. :cry:

It looks like LL does not make a HA jacket for the pocono top vent.
Any chance LL will be making one for the Pocono soon ?

I plan to buy my LL stove next week but I can't find any prices online.

Since I am can bend ductwork in my shop I am pretty much determined to use an air jacket.
I may just go to the HyFire I instead of the Pocono. If the jacket os too expensive Ill probably have to make my own crude replica.

Can anyone give me a URL to a list of typical retail prices for the Pocono, Hyfire I and II and the air jacket.

I live in Pgh. and my nearest dealer is Indiana Pa. I hate to annoy stoes calling up for proces when I can look on line and get a ballpark and see which models cost more or less than each other

Ive seen the Pocono for $2,750 but I havent seen prices for the HyFires.

Thanks
