Good point. As for the barometric using less air, I really like the idea another member had which was to put the barometric at floor level where It's air intake would be cooler thus using less. I don't know if it would work but seems to make sense lol

That's funny, I've considered getting shirts made with something about coal on them. Maybe the mayor would be interested, he could promote this site on the shirts too. It's really not that expensive. We get shirts made for my rock band :D

It might be worthy of a new thread to stir interest.

That wont work. People looking to cheat on a baro risk much bigger problems than the few # of coal they "think" they are losing. Install the damn thing as the manufacturer suggests and enjoy your savings burning coal. Kidding yourself that you can save a dollar or two with some Rube Goldberg adjustment may just lead to your own demise.

Best known for his “inventions”, Rube’s early years as an engineer informed his most acclaimed work. A Rube Goldberg contraption – an elaborate set of arms, wheels, gears, handles, cups and rods, put in motion by balls, canary cages, pails, boots, bathtubs, paddles and live animals – takes a simple task and makes it extraordinarily complicated. He had solutions for How To Get The Cotton Out Of An Aspirin Bottle, imagined a Self-Operating Napkin, and created a Simple Alarm Clock – to name just a few of his hilariously depicted drawings.

Just off the top of my head, I'd say mounting a baro near the floor would require running the stack DOWN from the outlet of the stove and hot air generally doesn't like to do that.

Any length of pipe beyond the TEE begins to defeat the operation of the device. It must be installed as indicated if you want it to work properly. If you must tease yourself with the thought that you can improve the device well beyond the manufacturer, please prove it on something that doesn't risk your life before attempting on a coal burning appliance.

No, I'd run it down from a tee. Thanks :D

You could, but I don't think it would work that way.
