I also installed the SWG power vent from Alaska Co. Bloomsburg, PA. It was rather easy to install, hardest part was finding a 6" bit to cut the hole through the foundation. We have an older Kast Konsole II with the bottom vent. The people at Alaska Co. are very friendly and helpful, our stove is working perfectly, at first I thought it was wasting to much coal but after it got going and heated up the basement walls and floor it is very comfortable. You have to get the Barometic Damper the correct opening, ours is almost closed except for a fingertip opening, as The Alaska Co. told us to set it. We have very little unburnt coal now and we are running the stove on setting #3. We have never used coal before and are very happy with it so far. Our power vent has very little odor, unless you stand right next to it. It has been very windy the last couple of days and no problems with the power vent.
