Worked very well. Made good use of the low internal stove exhaust for great heat extraction under the air jackets...that was sure nice heat temps. blowing out of the duct registers throughout the entire house. :)
It was to keep us in heat until I found a stoker coal boiler at my price, how ever long that might take.
Well, I got lucky fairly quick and to my surprise I found our Axeman and did a change out over to the boiler in the winter of 2011.
Besides the great home heat delivery flexibility from the boiler, we've come to enjoy the luxury of both abundant and economical hot water. :D
