How well does LL's hot air jacket system work. i have a 1400 sq ft ranch style house w/1000 sq ft finished in the basement.
I'm thinking the Pocono would have enough fire power.

Are you putting it in the basement? The jacket will wash the sides of the stove and gain more heat from the stove, I have a LL hyfire in the basement and it could use the jacket to push more heat upstairs (this falls project), without it, keeps the basement nice and warm too. But I know I can get a lot more heat upstairs with it. It all depends on your situation. If you have enough air flow upstairs, you may not need it.

yes it goes in the basement, in my mechanical room. i want to pipe it into the return side of my furnace. is there many people out there that have used LL's hot air jacket/pipped into the cold air return and been happy with the results?

I'll be converting my Keystoker Koker to using the "Leisure Line" cold air return trick this summer. I'll let you know how it works about a year from now!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

On a serious note: I don't anticipate any problems; however, it would be interesting to hear from forum members who have already implemented this forced hot air solution. :) :) :)
