Re: Setting draft on 7-inch flue

No it would be the same.. in fact the 7 may run a little warmer and cleaner at .03 than an 8 or larger would

Re: Flue liner fun

If the flames and gases reach a temperature of 1000°, the creosote will ignite.. standard temps going up the chimney with the draft regulator installed properly is 500-600 degrees.

I would still recommend you clean it out as best you can when you have it all apart.

Thanks,

Bill

Re: Flue liner fun

:shock: :shock: :shock: I can honestly say im taken aback by what im looking at !!! .. this is a brand new house isnt it ? Youll have to go to a 6in which meets code if the chimney is more than 15 feet from the thimble to the cap. Thats a pretty standard height. I would do the reduction right as it ...

Re: Natural Gas

With Natural Gas youll still get 80.1% efficiency and it will still light the wood fire for you like the oil did.

Re: Yukon for new home rebuild

Hi, I was just browsing through and thought id answer as best I can .. Yes having a furnace blowing the whole length of the home instead of centrally located can cause some heat loss/ pressurization problems that you described with the farthest rooms being cooler in the winter. I know nothing about ...

Re: Air in oil line

If there isnt something thats changed inside the tank and there is no possible way for air to get into the system then it will need to be a two line system so it can self prime.

Re: Air in oil line

Realistically the way this is set up it should have a two line system. The oil pump is working contingent on a siphoning process since the lines go up to the basement ceiling and then back down to the pump. Most setups with a one line system go from the valve down to the floor running along the floo...

Re: Air in oil line

At this point there would be no point in sending back the old fuel pump because if there is nothing wrong with it we cant send it back to wayne for credit or use it for anything. You may as well keep it for a spare.
The oil tank is below the furnace ?.. is it a one line system or two?
