Finally made it back to post!
Just moved back to Ohio (was born here), bought a 3,880 sqft house with a full uninsulated basement.
There was a Hotblast model 1557 that looks like it was abused. Last week installed a Hitzer 80 FA furnace, replace the hotblast and ducted to cold air return.
My heat pump could not keep up without using the electric heaters.
Anyways, this Hitzer is awesome. Took a day or so to catch up (house was cold). Now I am enjoying 76F in main living area. The guys at work think I am nuts going with coal. I love it!
