Once you have the manometer, you set the weight where it gives you -.04 inches water column on the draft gauge.

As far as the knobby weight thing on the BDC whether it should be on
2,4,6 etc ...thanks



4 on the right if the tee is running vertical. 4 on the left side if the tee is running horizontal. If plumb and level the RC is pretty well calibrated but can be tuned even better using a Manometer.

Also please note that the pic below of the stove in order to show you the vents, was taken in the fall before the stove was running. all the cables/wires are set up right and theres no stuff around the stove anymore. My coaltrol is set up upstairs by the living room Image


One thing I notice is the apparent absence of fire dampers as the ducts penetrate the upper floor.

The National Fire Protection Code (not used in all states) requires automatic fire dampers whenever a duct passes through a floor. Ducting for furnaces with an automatic quick acting cut off at 165F are exempt.

Check your local codes and inspection requirements or you may find you have no fire insurance.
