Does the Harman Dvc-500 Require a Baro-dampener?

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

Does the Harman DVC-500 require a baro-dampener?
I would be coming out of the back of the stove with a 90 degree elbow, up the wall 6 feet and then another elbow through a cement wall. This is a furnished basement install. Thinking about replacing my inefficent gas log fire place with something like the Harman direct vent. Thanks

I think most Direct vent stoves do NOT require a baro damper, they have the exhaust blower to keep a constant draft on the stove in all weather conditions. It normally maintains constant draft.

The baro damper is for variable draft conditions caused by wind and temperature, usually hooked to a standard chimney and can pull more draft on the stove and make it burn more if very windy. It opens/closes to allow more/less draft on the stove to keep it more constant draw thru the stove and better more controlled burning.
