Got My New Stove! Now how do I hook it to the ductwork?

PostBy: Muss44 On: Tue Aug 19, 2014 6:48 am

I got my Hitzter 82-fa and i beleive i have it settled where I want. Hitzer shows mutiple ways of connecting the stove to the duct work, but i wanted to get some opinions of what seems to work the best. I have the filter and blower combo on the back of the stove. In the picture, the return is coming down the rightside and the supply is going back up the leftside. I was told by one person that i should try to hook the return to the back of the blower box and the pipe up into the supply. Thoughts? Suggestions? Comments?

Couple of things to consider, . . . .

Blower motor and fan bearings will likely live longer if it's set up to be on the cooler return side.

You'll also get less "hot dust" smell in the house if the filter is also before the stove on the return side.
