Side vent hand fired

PostBy: treysgt On: Sun Mar 09, 2008 4:48 pm

Anyone know if it is possible to do a 'side-vent' with a hand fired stove? My Dad is thinking of getting a coal stove but does not want to run a chimney and does not want to go stoker.

Yes it is possible. They sell what is called a power vent, but you need power to run it. This can be a problem if you loose power, unless you have a battery backup system to automatically kick in if power goes out. Check Harman, they sell them I believe.

I was under the impresion that power vents were used for stokers only?

They may be, I've never used one, just seen them advertised. For myself, I'm a little leary of anything that requires power to get the carbon monoxide out of my house. I will rely on a chimney. I know there are a lot of strings on power vents here, hopefully someone that owns one can help out with info.

I believe, Harman has one, which is auto feed, direct vent. Meaning, it doesn't need power or chimney. This may be the one or they may have more than one.
