From day two he's left a window open a couple of inches. I spoke with him yesterday & he seems to think he can adjust the draft to .04. I thought some time back he said all he could get was .02, but he says he adjusted the baro to .02 because that what mine likes. Maybe all it needs is adjusting!
1. In your original post you mentioned that the cleanout door had been blown open--is it now properly closed and sealed? It only comes open when it booms.
2. Is the chimney liner completely intact with no breaks or unsealed liner joints? Yes, but we're going to double check.
3. Is stove pipe to chimney connection fully sealed? Yes.
4. Are there any other openings in the chimney such as a second appliance? No
Thought I should mention, that even with this little glitch, that he's happy as heck with the AHS. He's saving a ton of money on fuel oil & propane & is warmer than ever. Another bonus, ever since the house was built the heat pipes have made awful expansion noise, with the coal that has been 100% eliminated. I think it's because the flow checks still leak a bit....he doesn't care why, he just knows it's some nice to to listen to them click & squeak all the time.
