Liesure Line Financing?

PostBy: tmbm50 On: Sat Oct 27, 2007 9:00 pm

Maybe a bit off topic but does anybody know of a dealer in PA that offers financing.....I'm look to get a hyfire I but the dealer in my area is kinda of just a part-time gig and has no financing available.

Thanks!

Do what I did, get a part time job and in no time pay cash for it. Financing is a bunch of crap, you end up paying 1/3 more for the product in the end, so you don't realize the savings of burning coal.

Call me anti credit card or what ever.

Also look around for some used stoves, you can save a bundle if your willing to use a little elbow grease.

Follow-Up Question

PostBy: tmbm50 On: Sun Oct 28, 2007 5:02 pm

This is maybe directed more towards Jerry but anybody else with knowledge can pipe in.

If I ordered a Hyfire I today....whats the turn around time? The dealer in my area does not stock stoves so I assume they are built to order. Or do you know of a dealer in south central PA (lancaster area) that stocks units.

Second, more a technical question, at what outside temp can a Hyfire I be safely lite? I have a hand fed stove now and I typically wait until it's at least below 50 on a consistent basis. However, with a convection blower on a stoker, doesn't this provide some level of pressure to force the gases up the chimney. This would lead me to believe you could light a stoker in warmer (ie 60-65 degree) weather.

Thanks

The "convection" blower you mention is for the HEAT into the room, has nothing to do with the exhaust.

I think you mean a Direct Vent or Power Vent, those stoves then can be run just about anytime with any temp. and no tall chimney is required, just a vent to outside, it keeps a constant draft on the stove. Not all stokers have Power/direct vents, you can get them either way.

Our Keystoker was a power vent, but since we moved, I hooked it directly up to the brick chimney in the basement and unhooked the power vent.

As long you have a tall enough chimney and good draft, you can light it normally 60 and below, normally the cooler, the better, but we have had our running for over 2 weeks and it was up into the 60's without any draft issues. It is a very tall chimney almost 3 story chimney.

Or if you mean the 'combustion' blower, the answer is yes, this does provide some positive pressure to help create draft, but it also can push exhaust gasses back into the coal hopper. You end up with condensation and coal exhaust smells from the hopper.

So you still need a chimney that will pull a draft if you run the stoker in the warmer weather. You should not have any problems with temps in the 60's or below. Providing you have a decent chimney.

Ordered Yesterday

PostBy: tmbm50 On: Fri Nov 02, 2007 8:07 am

I ordered my Hyfire II yesterday! Can't wait to get it. Should be ready next week.

But a quick question. Has anybody tried to rig something up so they can cap the gap that is right under the top plate? It would be nice to be able to cap that the same way that the heat tubes can be capped with a removal flap.

That would allow me to direct more or less air either up the collar on the top or out into the room. Maybe once I get it in place it won't work the way i think but it seems like the air would bypass the 10" collar and just come out the front. I didn't go with the jacket becuase this unit is in a family room so it has to look somewhat presentable. But the room is small enough I think just the radiant heat would be sufficient.

Is that maybe something I could get pre-made?

I think Jerry includes one with the stove. My [purchased used] Hyfire I had a 'V' shaped piece of steel, about 1" high that sat on the stove top, under the top cover, and esentially blocked the air from coming out the front vent.
You can make one from just about any piece of steel. Go to your local hardware and get a piece of flatstock, and bend a piece to fit. Measure the depth of the air passageway first. My statement of 1" is a guess.

A hyfire II will really push out the heat with both stokers burning !!
