Thermostatic control is optional and you can elect to either control your unit at either the dial dash board or by a wall thermostat (we sell them). If you plan to run your multifuel furnace on a thermostat, we suggest you run it initially without the thermostat connected to become accustomed to the operation of the unit. If using a thermostat, when your room space does not call for heat, your multifuel furnace will ratchet down to a PILOT FIRE which should be the lowest dial setting (one). (See picture on bottom row of pictures). When it calls for heat the multifuel furnace will return to the previous dial setting. NOTE: Do NOT use the existing thermostat to control both your old and new furnace. This Mult-fuel Unit, if run with a thermostat, should be set about 5 Degrees higher than the Old furnace, so the majority of the heat will come from the Mutlt-fuel Unit. The Multi-fuel Unit should be the primary furnace...the old furnace should be the backup. In the first year it is not recommended the Old Furnace be replaced...in fact it may be wise to keep it permanently as a backup. We sell Wall Digital Thermostats Round or Square, Wall Dial-Indicator Thermostats, and Remote Control Thermostats. REPEAT SUGGESTION: Those electing a Thermostat Options should run their Multi-Fuel Furnace without it for 1-4 weeks in order to become familiar with the multi-fuel furnace on a stand-alone-basis.

We are a Dealer specializing in corn stoves and can help you through your installation as well as and trouble shooting if necessary. Be careful as others do not have the capability to do that.
FLOOR LOCATION, DUCT LAYOUT, FLUE EXHAUST LAYOUT
There are two alternative layouts: (1) Short Hot-Air, Cold-air Duct runs, and long Flue Exhaust Pipe runs, long Combustion (Fresh) Air Pipe runs; (2) Long Duct runs and short Pipe runs. We recommend (1) short Duct runs and long Pipe runs.
SHORT DUCT RUNS: We recommend maximizing your room-air flow and having the shortest ductwork path possible with the least amount of turns (preferably none) using 14 inch square ductwork. Don't worry about how long your Flue Exhaust Pipe run or Fresh-Air Pipe run will be, as that will be the least of your problems. Locate your Multifuel Furnace right along side your existing furnace facing in the same direction and directly underneath the main air discharge trunk line that your existing furnace plenum rises up to meet. You then use a 14 inch square plenum for your Hot-air discharge from the top of your Multifuel Furnace, go straight up and mate into the same trunk line. Your Cold-air return on your Multifuel Furnace should have a 24 x 14 x 20 inch take-off from the bottom rear and from there you run either horizontally or vertically by tapping into either side of a 14 X 20 inch Tee located on the side or back. The Cold Air Tee is built universal and can tap either side left or right or at the rear, and go up either vertically or horizontally. Vertical: we sell a 14 X 20 vertical-drop cold air plenum with a right-angle turn at the bottom. Horizontal: You can simply go across the floor in a 14 X 20 inch rectangular plenum to mate into your existing old furnace. When you step back and face the front of the furnaces, you should see two vertical plenums going straight up merging into your Hot-air discharge trunk line. When you go to the rear of the furnaces you should see a horizontal 14 X 20 inch rectangular plenum lying on the floor (or close to it) connecting the two Cold-air return take-offs at the bottoms of each furnace. Note you will need back-draft dampers for both furnaces.
LONG PIPE RUNS: It does not matter how far you run your Flue Exhaust Pipe as you can always use 4 inch Stainless Steel FLEX pipe to run any distance and if your need a flue exhaust booster fan (probably not), then you can install one. Same comment for a Fresh-Air Pipe, run a 3 inch Aluminum pipe whatever distance you need.
BACK-DRAFT DAMPER SUGGESTIONS
You will need both a Duct Take-off and a Duct Back-Draft Damper for your installation. You will need a back-draft damper installed in BOTH this multi-fuel Furnace and your Old furnace. We sell either a Round 12" Dia., 14" Square, or Rectangular (8"x16") Back-Damper for this unit and your Old Furnace we have Aluminum Drop Leaves you can use as back-draft damper. We sell all three (3) in our Eby Store. Unless the customer is a technical handyman, he (she) may want to hire a licensed certified HVAC mechanical contractor to install them. You can also hire a sheet metal fabricator to do it. Note: unless you insert back draft dampers for each furnace your system will not work correctly. The damper blades can be gravity drop and are usually made out of light-weight aluminum .025" thick. You can buy all three (3) back-draft dampers from us as they are in our Ebay Store and they are hard to make ( must use light-weight aluminum .025" thick). Do not use galvanized metal for damper blades as they weigh too much and will starve your horse power output when the furnace turns on, the air blows up through the flaps. Buy the back-draft dampers from us and you will get the right thing. If you are having difficulty making or finding a back-draft damper, then call us.
We recommend using 14 inch square plenum and ductwork because it gives you the largest cross section area of 144 Square inches with the least amount of air-flow resistance. 12 inch round is the least attractive at 113 square inches, and 8 x 16 inch retangular is 128 square inches. We sell 14 inch plenum and duct in our Ebay Store.
OPERATING AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Winning bidders will be immediately mailed our 24 page OWNER'S MANUAL so they may read it and prepare for the future delivery of their Corn furnace (stove). In the Owner's Manual is a step by step instruction for installation of this Multi-fuel Furnace as a Primary Furnace located side by side to your Old Furnace. We recommend you run our Multi-fuel as a primary to achieve your desired temperature and use your old furnace as a backup and dial-down the thermostat to your old furnace about 5 Degrees lower than what you are confortable with. You Old furnace should only fire-up in an emergence back-up role. Do NOT run off the same thermostat; in fact you may wish to try running our Multifuel unit initially without a thermostat.
Do NOT get rid of your Old Furnace but keep it as an emergency back-up. Use our Mult-fuel Unit as your primary furnace set to produce heat at 5 Degrees higher than your Old Furnace. The Mult-fuel Unit does not need a thermostat to run effectively. You do NOT need a thermostat to run the Multi-fuel Unit. Do not use one thermostat for both furnaces. If you elect (as an option) to run the Multi-fuel unit on a thermostat, then it must have it's own thermostat. Those electing a Thermostat Option should first run their Multi-Fuel Furnace without it for 1-4 weeks so they become familiar with the multi-fuel furnace on a stand-alone-basis.
Also installation for Exhaust Flue Vent Kit (not provided) and startup are available. Exhaust Flue Vent Kit can be purchased separately at your request. We sell 4 inch Stainless Steel FLEX extentions in any length that can connect to the rear of the Multifuel furnace and run anywhere either inside or out. Up-The-Basement-Wall Extension of 6 feet with another 90 turn is available. Included is a Fresh Air Intake Kit which is recommended and can be used to avoid room air vacuum as well as draw oxygen-rich air in from the outside.
Thermostatic customers nervous about premature furnace shutdow at slower speeds, could run a small pecentage of wood pellets mixed with corn. We recommend customers experiment with burning a mixture of wood pellets and corn...they may wish to switch exclusively to wood pellets later if the price of corn skyrockets. We also recommend customers experiment burning soybeans and wheat. Crushed Oyster Shell sprinkled in the hopper bin facilitates a cleaner burning and helps avoid any Clinker formation. However the high technology agitator design, extremely rugged, helps elimate clinkers also. The unit is NEW in a box/crated pallet.
