hooking up shrowd from my pocono 2 to my oil forced air furn

PostBy: tbrooks56 On: Mon Jan 02, 2012 12:13 am

I have a LL pocono 2 90,000 but Cole stove would like to hook this up to heat my whole house. I have a two story old farm house it is insulated and new windows. The house is heated with a thermo pride oil furnace . i would like to run the Cole stove through the furnace using my furnace blower to get the heat to my living spaces. I bought this 3 year old Cole stove which was only used for 2 seasons with everything with it for 1200 dollars figure that was a good price power vent thermostat digital pipping barometric damper cable and 2 bags of Cole. I find no pictures or instructions on how to hook this to my furnace . I did just buy the shroud that goes around the stove .Really want to hook this up to run the best it can . So i could really use all your help .I also bought the unit that tells the furnace blower to kick on i think it goes into the pipe pictures and instructions would be great . It is getting colder and I live in upstate NY. Will say thanks now and will be watching

Ok went over to a friends house to look at his LL Pocono 2.This is how he has his hooked up . He has a 12 inch cold air duct from his house furnace brought it over to the stove Y it and brought one side down to the one side of the jacket and the other 12 inch pipe to the other side . Then from the top where the heat is took a 12 inch pipe and hooked it to the exhaust part of the furnace that goes to the house. I would like to hook my stove up the same but i have questions. Like when the furnace blower kicks on drawing the cold air from the house how do i direct the cold air to my coal stove wont my furnace blower send that air to my heat exchange of my furnace? . I have an oil furnace so i have a plenum on the top. I have 4 or 5 cold air pipes on one side the blower sucks the cold air from the house then blows it into the heat exchange . Then the hot air goes into the other side of the plenum to my hot air runs . Need help on this hoping my LL friends have some ideas for me .Will say thank you now and read the posts

If you hook it into your cold air intake plenum, it will suck the heat from the coal stove by convection blower and push it into the other part of the the furnace. You really only need one plenum. YEs, if you hook it into the hot side of the plenum, you need backdraft dampers to keep the hot air going the correct direction in your plenum.

Post a pic or two of your setup and then we can suggest more ideas.

Here is a picture of how i will be hooking up my coal stove. Will be hooking up the two 12 inch cold air return pipes to the sides of my jacket. Then taking the hot air pipe from the top of the jacket and into the cold air side of the plenum Then using my blower on my oil furnace to get the heated air back into the house. I do have a chimney that iam thinking of piping the exhaust to that anyone have any advice on that ? I do have a power vent but if i can put it in the chimney would save a little money .If anyone has any advice on the hookup would be glad to hear it thanks
