hi, my name is tim and i recenty made the jump from oil forced air to coal :) however i have some issues hooking my furnace up one issue is that i would like to hook the plenum into my existing oil furnace plenum, not that big of a deal i just want to know if anyone else has done that and how you did it and how well it works. the other is hooking it into the chimney, as i said i have a oil burning furnace which is staying right where it is. due to the placement of the coal furnace relative to the oil furnace in order to utilize the existing plenum i have some issues in hooking into my existing chimney. one is i could go straight from my furnace into the bottom part of my chimney near the clean out hole, does not seem like that great of an idea, the other is i could run a 90 off from the back of the furnace and straight up and another 90 into the chimney, again doesn't seem like a great idea. the other is i could possibly run a 45 of from the chimney and another 90 to get into the chimney. as you can see i have no clue any suggestions are greatly appreciated
