You will want to keep an eye on fly ash accumulation in the bottom of the heat exchanger areas, the ash 'cyclone' and the cone at the bottom of the cyclone. All of these need a certain amount of air velocity to work as designed.
I'll keep an eye on it, it doesn't have any trouble blowing flyash out of every seam in the stovepipe, that's for sure. Now I know why they want every thing sealed up with the "end of the world as we know it" asbestos tape.
