Got a quote for a Finnish ,soapstone fireplace,Tulikivi. Do a search,they are over a 1000 years old tech. Damn  impressive, if I do the support from first floor to basement. Of course I need to add 12-18 inchs of re-bar filled concrete, after installation I`m only out 25 to 30 grand! Only burn 2 times a day . Wish I hit a lottery!!

New camera on order, It`s a modular so all sheet \rock ,wiring and plunbing,  cabiniets, toilets come pre-installed. Has a loft second floor, flooring and insulation already down. Roof is hinged and crane does a lift ,kneewall hinges down and second half of roof folds over again.! You know I have all set - day photos on card from old dead camera. Tomorrow I will see if I can get some uploaded.

Thanks for hanging in with me guys. What fun would a simple problem be !!!

Both units are horizontal, coil was that way in attic and furnace is vertical or horizontal option . they are both horizontal hanging from floor joists. The coil is pointed with < heat/blower coming from open side of v . top/point is aimed downstream.


It`s been 42 years since I went to school!!!

Found box for replacement air supply limit and it is correct value.Opens at 250 closes at 210. The 80,000 btu have the highest opening temp of all the nordyne g6 models. Even higher than 100,000, and 120,000 ? Thinking a coil may be restriction? It was a separate attic unit in house we moved it from. We just moved them from house we demoed a 100 feet away. Had no way to put in ceiling vent for a/c as this is a new build modular. So we put coil box in line with furnace. Did I make a large mistake? Coil cabinet and furnace cabinet same outside size. They married right together.

As I said  earlier cape with 23 foot vaulted ceiling, 2 68 inch 5 blade fans to help in winter. I realize the heat will always go up. Should I go up in size to a 120,000 btu ? Or will it just burn more propane and not add more temp. rise in house. Home is only 4 years old. 2x6 side wall insulation and r-39 in vault and upstairs bedroom ceiling.

Heat is more of concern than A/C. Here on the lake shore we stay cooler than across the road.
