Re: Flue liner fun

Thanks. The one concern and maybe I am being paranoid is the soot that's actually now behind the tile. Of course the chimney sweep is worst case that the flue temps will ignite it and blow up the house, and while that's extreme there is a bit of validity to at least address it. So how much temps wil...

Re: Flue liner fun

No its an older home, the chimney never had a cap it appears.

How do you support the SS liner?

Also the flue is a 11 x 6 3/4 if I recall correctly

The 6" wont mess up the draft or anything?

Flue liner fun

So the Chimney sweep was here and of course there is a problem, which in this case he is correct. However the fix was remove the tile liner and reline with stainless for $3500 I wanted to include a photo just so I know I am clear. http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p297/djcoak/image_zps5tpe50nm.jpeg...

Natural Gas

So of course they ran a nat gas line to the house and now I get to decide what to do. This year I'll still run wood coal and oil, because I have it, but will be tough to go through the hassle with nat gas so cheap. My question is, what is the efficiency of the nat gas burner? Does it still operate l...

Re: Air in oil line

The old furnace ran for years on a single line without a hiccup, so you're saying these pumps can't handle it? Running the oil line on the floor isn't an option as I am not going to be tripping over it constantly. So the system needs to be a two line for my current set up?

Since the last time it has been running good. It shut down about 9pm last night and fired up fine this morning and has fired up 3 time...

Re: Air in oil line

it is a one line system. The tank is the same height as the furnace but the oil supply valve in the tank is below the oil pump on the furnace. The oil line basically goes up to the floor joists, over to the furnace, and then down to the pump. For the record, it has been running fine the last two day...

Husky

So I am starting to wonder if this furnace is too big for my 1400 square foot Ohio ranch. This furnace almost performs too well. Basically I am having to lite it two times a day because once it gets the house to 73, it goes to idle as the house doesn't cool off fast enough to ask for heat. By the ti...
