    You are correct. I'm sorry for adding my questions to this thread, bad form. I'll contact the the place I bought the stove from.

    It states the Hydroflex 60 is easy to install to an existing oil boiler. Does anyone know the typical cost to install one of these units?

    NH has a 30%, with a max of $6,000, rebate program for fully automated wood pellet boiler systems with a 3 ton pellet hopper (min.).

    You can add a water to air heat exchanger in your plenum and still use your hot air heating system.

    These wood pellet boilers have a high efficiency and cleaning is minimal.
    These systems pay for them self with the savings.

    I had fahrenheit furnance installed that I bought a year old and it has been a good unti. I have it tied into the existing duct work with a main damper so the air from the pellet furnace doesnt back throught the propane furnace. Works out very well. when it is about 15 outside the Propane furnance kicks on for a bit to help with the heavey heating. The house is 4300 square feet.

    Welcome to the Forum Earl..

    I Love my Fahrenheit also. I am only heating about 3,000 sq ft with mine 2,180 upstairs and the 800 sq ft room that the furnace resides in. I installed the most recent version of the control board, burn pot, sail switch, exhaust manifold, and a few other nik naks found on the brand new units

    Have any pics of your unit? Heating over 4,000 sq ft!! Wow.. What serial # is yours (lots of updates for the Fahrenheit)

    Welcome again. There are 3 other members here with Fahrenheits (343amc, ChrisWNY, and myself)

    I have recently purchased a ten year old house that has both a PF 100 and a propane furnace> I am having difficulties in trying to figure out how to get them to run the most effiecently together. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hopefully I am not highjacking, I saw how that other SOB was shown the door. Thanks ;)

    This was a challenge for me as well for a bit. I had damper installed in the duct work that did not work well so I had one damper installed in the main of my pellet furnace and the main of our Propane furnace and they work perfectly now.
