Jeff Sullivan: Somehow I missed your heater videos for the past 2 years. These are as good as any I've seen, better than most. My greenhouse is only 22' long but my heater is also in a recessed room/closet. I ran the exhaust at a slight angle the length of the greenhouse to dissipate as much heat as possible on the way out. I had a similar drafting problem like yours and was considering adding a second vertical stack to get the fire going and then close the damper to redirect the heat through the horizontal pipe but since you had the same problem even with a vertical stack I may rethink that and try the double wall outside stack first. Any thoughts on this idea? BTW Your original setup was the first horizontal stack setup I have seen on YouTube. I got the idea from my 125 year farmhouse that was heated that way with the pipe running between the rooms through the walls. Henry Ford built the house so I thought maybe it was just one of his ideas.
Michael Kalbow: Howdy everyone. I was looking for a link to the .pdf file you mentioned in your video but it appears as though that link is no longer accurate. Is it possible to get an update?
Willows Garden: Brilliant idea on the shade Bobby, kudos my friend. Hope you and Susan have a wonderful Thanksgiving, hugs, love and prayers to y'all!
whiteflight8: Great videos Love your positive attitude Thanks for sharing
Ron Gordon: Ive watched all your videos and get something from everyone, when you added the gospel at the end that was fantastic, encouraging and uplifting great job
cubcadet1983: WHILE YOU WERE EXPLAINING THE DOUBLE WALL I HAD AN IDEA OF A THREE WALL PIPE WALL PIPE INSULATE THE MIDDLE WALL AND OUTSIDE AND YOU WOULD HAVE A AIR GAP IN BETWEEN THE CENTER AND THE MIDDLE. NOW I WAS CURIOUS OF YOUR OPINION ON THAT
mhpgardener: I do have firebrick in the bottom barrel, about 1/2 way up the sides. It does make a difference.
3larryhunter: You could buy 1"fire brick for on the bottom of the fire barrel and that will hold some heat.
mhpgardener: Thank you.
smacurface: Man alone...
You have my respect.
Good man. Good heart .
I wish you success.
MotoWanderer: Living in Montana and having burnt wood all my life, I’ll throw in my 2 cents. Your setup is amazing and you are getting a lot out of it. However, shorten your stove pipe from the outside. 6 ft of pipe sticking out is a disaster waiting to happen as it cools off too rapidly. Dig a hole under your stove and set it lower so you still have a long enough pipe for a good draft, and get to keep more of the heat off the pipe inside rather than sending it outside. Creosote ignites and burns violently.
mhpgardener: Yep...been looking at a 6 inch fan for my other stove setup.
Jeffry Rogers: You can do a Google search at Tractor Supply.
Jeffry Rogers: Have you heard of an inline fan for your wood stove maybe it will give you more heat?
JTB1956: Your welcome. I'm not an HVAC mechanic but I qualify as an expert on solid fuel. The scenario I mentioned about drawing negative pressures around a vessel is the central reason why folks (including HVAC guys) get themselves in trouble when trying to add on a "furnace" to an existing appliance by just hooking up to the cold air return side. It works until it doesn't...or your homeowners policy is cancelled. Pressurizing means that leakage can only go INTO the firebox...not out. Safety is #1.
mhpgardener: Thanks for the advice. I'm no HVAC expert or Mech Eng, so I'd be getting input from a couple of my friends who are. This is one of those ideas that just bounces around for a very long time. It might happen, but not anytime soon.
JTB1956: If you do something like that you'll need to pressurize the area around the stove and heat exchanger....NOT draw a negative pressure around the vessel....in other words push air INTO the space around the stove. If you draw air away from it (causing negative pressure) you have the potential of pulling carbon monoxide thru any flaw in the assembly or in the pipe and sending CO where you're trying to heat.
mhpgardener: LOL..Clinton WH. Out here, my options are limited. After VZ, the next choice is satellite..and that's going from bad to worse. VZ wants to lock me into a much higher contract, and I'm not willing to pay up for this 3G service. Once they upgrade this tower to 4G, (might be awhile), my modem will be obsolete, and I'll be forced into a new modem and higher plan. Until then, I just live with it. It's still better than full-time dial up. Just one of the joys of living out in the country. :)
Michael Emery: Verizon sucks like the Clinton Whitehouse! I used to have Verizon, I moved, so I called to cancel the service, three months later I started getting bill collector calls saying I owed Verizon a couple hundred dollars. Come to find out, Verizon never cancelled my service, they just kept billing me and finally shut if off, they put the charges on my credit, a real scam, NH consumer protection bureau is useless, nothing to do but pay them money. Stay away from Verizon at all costs!
