Hyfire II Install

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.

I think you have enough heat !!!!
Nice job on the install. Neat but not gaudy.

Thanks for the comments. This morning I finished running the pipe & hooked up my dump zone for water coil. It is about 20 sq. feet of radiant floor heat under a bathroom with tile floor.Works very well but I hope it dumps enough heat, stove was running on idle all day & I had all the water running to the radiant floor heat the tank temp. stayed at 130 deg.What is going to happen when I burn the stove hotter.

Probalby continuous dump once it gets hot enough...maybe have to add a bigger zone or another zone in another part of your house.
