i think it would be a great help if i got the timer, and i need to install the baro damper that a member gave me friday......need to keep the shop warm tho...cant shut it down to install the baro damper yet.....i'm heating a 3200 square foot garage with little insulation, and a high celing.........what is the sq ft rating on the af150? was thinking of putting ducts into the house.....we heat the house with a antique kenmore coal stove, and i heat my 800 sq ft apt with the alaska.......if i put ducts with dampers in, would the efm be able to heat the whole 6,000 square feet in above freezing temps? and shut the dampers in the ducts off when using all 3 stoves.......it's an old furnace but i love it! i have been concerned with he burn.......sometimes smoke was coming out of the barrel...opening the manual damper a tad stopped that, and the feed pipe is cool now......it got really hot two weeks ago when we got a rust hole in the steel feed pipe and a pile of coal on the floor......i have it patched with foil tape and jb weld till i can shut the furnace off and replace the feed pipe.
my next door neighbor has an efm boiler......his coal is not burning correctly......was thinking of burning his ashes lol.......i bet the fines handle hasnt been pulled in 20 yrs, but i cant convince him to let me look at it for him......he's burning rice coal, and i bet 3/4 of it isnt getting burned. we get our coal from the hegins breaker, it always burns consistent.......his coal comes from blaschak in ravine..
