Can I Buy a Direct Vent Kit for My Older Econo 1

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 am looking to give my older Econo 1 stove to my son to help heat their new to them 1865 vintage home. The old chimney was torn down and a new one put up something like 60 years ago when the old coal boiler was torn out and an oil boiler was put in. With the price of fuel oil they can't really afford to heat their home to a comfortable temp.

I was looking to give my Econo 1 stove to them but they would need a direct vent kit to put on it.

Can I buy a direct vent kit to put on this bottom vent Econo 1 coal stove?

Yes you can use the 4AF powervent. Can he do a class A chimney?

You know when people say it was "better back in my day"?

They were right.
