Hyfire II...DONE!

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.

Got my Hyfire hooked up.

WOW! What a stove! My house is finally all warmed up....We are loving it! Before our stoker, we had the oil set at 58*.

Thanks to ALL at Leisure Line for such a great product!

Just a few pics of the stove:

Thanks guys!

I actually had her running for a test burn the day after I picked it up. I wanted to bake the paint, before I hooked up the heat jacket......MAN, this stove can put out the heat!

I have my cold air return tied directly into one of the convection blowers, and let me tell you...It works very well. It has been int the 20's at night here, and I have kept my downstairs(where T stat is) at 70*. My second floor is slightly cooler at 67*....PERFECT for sleeping.

Even with the heat jacket, this baby still radiates a good amount of heat, which is great because the stove is in the basement so it heats my hardwood, and my tile in my downstairs bathroom...BONUS!

We are extremley happy with our purchase.

Thank you to everyone here, for such great information!

Also, I received my loaner manometer.....

Some quick readings:

Outside temp: 29*
Wind-NONE
Stove temp 475*

Manometer: -.05 WC

Outside temp 36*
Wind:NONE
Stove temp 200*(near Idle)

Manometer: -.04 WC

How do they look???

Numbers look good Tim, you might want to adjust the baro to keep the draft at -.04" WC, from you reading during full burn it looks like it is not opening fully at -.04" WC.
