I lack a basement, otherwise I'd tie one into my central unit. I'm far enough south that an expensive boiler system is hard to justify. I already have gravity wagons and augers (4 & 6 inch) so stoker coal is the obvious choice for ease of handling. So a couple of questions regarding combustioneer:
I realize the front can be blocked so all heat comes out the top. Can the top be blocked and push all the heat out the side?
Can they be used with a power vent?
Could one be used in the same manner as the Little House wood furnace? http://www.outsidewoodheater.com/index.html
IE one large supply in one end of the house and a return in the far end. Would I roast out of the room the supply dumps into?
Thanks for your input.
