Heat discharge modification

Heat discharge modification

PostBy: ceccil On: Tue Mar 18, 2008 11:24 am

I read somewhere on here where someone had closed off the heat discharge on their stove and put a connection on top for what I believe was a 6" pipe. Could someone tell me where to find this again? Also, how well it worked out for them. I don't know if this is something I want to do, but found it interesting. Thanks.

Thats not the one I was thinking of but that is very cool, now thats thinking. The one I was thinking of was where they welded the discharge shut and cut a hole in the top of the stove to install a flange for the pipe. Your set up should work just as well without cutting upo the stove. Nice work!! :D

I did it to both my Hyfire and Keystoker, Just used a Metal Blade in my jigsaw and cut a 8" hole for a collar. The Hyfire was easy, the top comes off the stove. and just put a piece of metal over the opening to direct the heat up the pipe.

You just have to make sure you have 2 layers of steel on top and your blower vents out the top/front of the stove, you don't want to be cutting into the firebox!

Ya, this is the one I was reading about. I have the same setup. Blows out the front between door and top of stove just under the lip. Thought about this type of setup plus adding a cold air return line from other end of 1st floor like Ls recommended. I was also going to add a water coil to it also. How much will this affect the heat output on the stove. I wouldn't think it should be much once the water in the tank is up to temp. May affect it some when first started with cold water but after that it should be ok. Thanks for the link.

The coil shouldn't affect your heat output much if at all.

I have my hot air duct piped upstairs, and works very well, even without the blower on, the hot air rises and keeps the room around 64 degrees. I turned the setpoint on the blower down around 140-150, so it kicks on more often, teh stove mostly idles.
