    In the Manual there is a section for "low draft voltage adjustment" "to achieve the most efficient burn on low burn". I don't have a draft meter. Can I adjust this trim pot by flame characteristics and what should I look for?

    Does anyone know of an inexpensive meter available for this? Has anyone adjusted the draft on your unit, or have you left it to the installer. Mine totally ignored this step.

    You should have a meter to do the low draft test. Your dealer SHOULD have a draft meter to do this test. Harman , I think , might sell this tester.

    If you paid a professional to install your Harman it's their
    responsibility to check the draft with a magnehelic. I'd call
    them and request they get back out and do it.

    For homeowners who installed their own stove, I know many inspectors
    have their own meter and make it common practice to check the
    draft before they sign off the install.

    I adjusted the draft on my Harman Accentra.
    I borrowed the meter from where I work, They bought it from McMaster-Carr, I think they paid about $75.00
    Following the instructions in the manual, the job was very easy.
