Re: Coal Burning

Madzell: Can you give us an idea of how you get your coal fire going? I just switched about an hour (6pm) ago from burning wood for the past 6 hours to burning coal for the night. With my wood fire good and hot, I shook down the ash bed really well to get out any remaining coal ash from last night/t...

Wireless Flue Temp Monitor

I have a Klondike IV, which OBTW, I love. I currently have a probe type thermometer/pyrometer inserted into the exhaust flue to monitor temps. Since my furnace is in my basement I was curious if you know of/can recommend a wireless probe thermometer I can use to remotely monitor my exhaust temps. Th...

Re: Coal Burning

I have an Eagle IV Klondike. One thing I always make sure to do is not start my coal fire until I have a really good, hot bed of wood coals going before I layer on the coal. I too have made the ash pan modification by drilling three holes in it. Those not in use are covered by magnets. At any rate, ...

Re: Top 10 reasons to burn woodil

Bill, I am going to be replacing my electric hot water heater with a propane hot water heater. Now for the interesting part. I have a Hot Shot that I bought shortly after purchasing my Klondike IV in 2010. I'm very interested in the idea of using my electric water heater, once disconnected, as a tem...

Re: Stove Coal (Anthracite)

Well, I just tried using stove coal for the first time, having used exclusively nut coal to this point. Bought a couple bags of stove just to see what the differences were. I'm now into 15 hours of burn with the stove coal, and it is still happily chugging away. With larger chunks it makes sense to ...

Re: Wood Stove vs. Yukon Eagle

For Jimeez: Just FYI, I have a Yukon-Eagle IV Klondike installed in the basement of my 2500sqft home in the U.P. of Michigan. There is absolutely no issue with a furnace heating your home. Even on the most bitter cold days up here, my Klondike keeps this house very toasty and warm, sometimes TOO war...

Manual vs Auto Fan Setting

On my Klondike I have a 1/2 hp fan motor. Works great for my 2500sqft of heating area. If I'm not mistaken a 1/2 hp electric motor draws about 2300 watts for start up and draws about 875 watts while running. Got those numbers from an electrical equipment info site. My question: Does it make more sen...

Re: How Do I Know My Electronic Damper Is Working Properly?

Well, I think my electronic damper is working just fine. While burning wood it is spot on with the thermostat. Set thermostat @ 74degF and it heats to 74degF, or any other combination I tried. I had an "aha moment" today while checking out the thread you sent me to test the damper. First o...
