I'm getting a LL Pioneer LE in Aug. and have some questions. When we moved into this house 18 yrs ago it was electric heat and I quickly changed over to oil/hot water economical then but not now. need to supplement, there was a wood burning stove in family room down stairs, which I got rid of, by the way this house is a tri level ranch the stove was in a bricked corner 29" deep x 41" wide on a slate slab same size. will this area fit the Pioneer and do I need to do anything to the existing flu other than clean it, i'm pretty sure it's a 6" pipe. The stove will face a wall thats 5.5ft away and the stairs are to the right of this wall , do you think I'll get enough heat will move up stairs we have cathederal ceilings in living room and kit/din. Thanks for any info. And bye the way this site is great. I've gotten a lot of info here.

Hi ,
That's a hard question to answer on the air movement. The best I can tell you is give it a try. Don't spend any extra money on anything until you know what you really need.
Thanks for your purchase.

I agree. Check the chimney to make sure it's safe and let 'er rip. Some fire dpeartments will check a chimney if you ask.

crazy a Baro is a must on any coal stoker /stove /boiler unless you want to heat the outdoors because with out one that
is what you will be doing you need it to control the draft use a RC-34 or the M model & Get yourself a dwyer 25 Mark II Manomenter to set it up correctly Check out ebay for theses items you can find good deals on them good luck
