    Good morning,
    I have just installed an older Daka stove in my basement.

    I have the stove exhaust pipe running up my masonry chimney.

    And the hot air connected to my natural gas furnace plenum off the main trunk line.

    I also have a furnace blower attached to the stove to move heat around my house.

    However I have realized that, even with the bigger furnace blower I'm not getting very much air flow to the main floor of the house.

    Could it be because I do not have the blower attached to the cold air return on my existing natural gas furnace?

    Almost as if I am trying to pump hot air into rooms that I'm not taking air away from.

    I don't know if that makes any sense to you guys or not.

    Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you.[​IMG]

    Maybe a moderator could move this to a better subforum where it will get more views. How about it wildwest Eric VW
