    Before I walked out the door, I gave the pellets in the Quad a good rub down and told them I will miss them and be back ASAP... ;-P

    Thanks... I hope this works. How do you like that stat. I opted to drop more cash on it, because of all the features. (Daily programming at 4 different times, swing adj, Temp calibration, "Locking" feature to keep the Wife from turning it up, touch screen, etc) Seems to be a nice unit. For what it cost, it better work! LOL

    Alright..... Done.. Its official. Stat is working.

    Stopped after work and grabbed some "Old Dominion" pellets (15 bags in the Focus). Also picked up 2 bags of one of the worst pellets around here (Natures Junk) just to try this year, because it was a new batch.

    When I was gettin the Old Dominions from TSC, I looked at there stove selection. Had several stoves. One of them was the Bay Window US Stove (pretty) and the other was the Window unit. Damn is that thing HUGE. It would take a large window to fit it in..... Didnt measure, but WOW. Also, I know believe in the plastic hopper (WTH). Plastic??? Didnt have the ABC control panel, so it had to be newer.

    Just want to Thank Everyone for there Patience and Help. It was a long road, but it has now been traveled. Stat is set to 71 w/ a 2* swing. Where its at in the hall, the rooms are a little warmer than that. But we like it Hot (74*-76* avg when its Cold) Its set to heat level 3 when the call for heat is made and then goes to level 1 with the Draft trim set to 4 and Feed trim set to 2.

    Has anyone burned the Old Dominions yet this year? I searched them here and they didnt seem bad. $4.00 a bag and they "say" they have Higher BTU's and less fines and ash than anything else I have. Also say they are an "Ultra Premium" Pellet...

    Anyways. Thanks everyone (for putting up with this long thread) I will post an update after about a months of use. I am going to try and burn some nasty pellets and see how long I can go without cleaning (reason I bought the 2 bags of Natures Junk). I am going to keep it on Stat mode and not Fuel Miser (This would shut it down after 45 min without a call for heat). I want it to run constantly to see what it can do and put it through its paces.

    Its over now Smoke.... just sayin! ;-P

    Mepellet.. Here is some info. The main line is 50 ft. It actually goes down in size on both ends. One end smaller than the other (just went into Bar/Pool room last night and seen it) Its 20 ft, 15 ft, and 15 ft. Used my kids colored pencils. The Orange circle with an X represents where the Fahrenheit is. Sorry for the sloppy handwriting.

    There are 6 registers. 2 are in-line and are set right into HVAC through the floor. The other 4 range from 5 ft - 6 ft away from Main line, what I think is 5" in diameter on the inside (8"-7" O.D. but insulated also)
    The 2 inline registers are running 700 FPM air flow with the meter or 8 mph. The 4 ducts are about half that. With the 2 closest to the furnace duct being slightly higher than half.

    I didnt restrict the air flow so it all could flow through the meter. Just set it at floor level. I gave the meter back to my buddy. So if the #'s are not what you were looking for, then I can borrow it again.

    Its an 800 CFM blower and I am getting 130*-140* with Easy Heat pellets (my shoulder pellet) Still saving the good stuff. So I am very optimistic that this should do well in the Cold months. I am thinking about "flipping" the 10" duct off the furnace. It would give it more vertical before the 90's. Although in terms of resistance it may be the same (I dont know??).. Anyways.

    Almost 2 seasons in and all I can say, is I love this thing. I never gave my 1 month review, but I never really cleaned it till the end of last season. So far this season, I have emptied the ash pan 3 times. And it is FULL when I empty it.

    I still only run it on level 3 on t-stat mode. Most nights, it idles on level 1, keeping the bedrooms about 71* (average). But I also have a rather large wood eater right next to it. So I am adding a few extra BTU with that ;)

    I ended up replacing a few parts. The hopper gasket (internal), the door gasket, I added a 2nd layer on the ash pan gasket, the new high flow sail switch, new updated high flow exhaust manifold, and I also closed up about 20-25 holes, in the upper sides, front, and back of pot (total on all 4 sides). I must say that the burn is Awesome. Compared to the 1st day of install and no OAK, to today, with all updated parts, board, and mods, it runs like a champ!!

    Love this furnace, but love the fact I am replacing the Quad (gonna try again) this year. If the new stove works as I think it should, I may not use it much next year. Just to play with the new baby!!

    Anyways. I figured I would update this old thread, for future reference and those that may look at the Fahrenheit 50F. It's a pretty stout unit. Even though its only rated at 50,000 BTU, it can hold its own.
