Heatmaster 5000 finally in use
« on: December 13, 2013, 05:34:45 PM »
   I got two heatmaster 5000's almost two years ago...
Planned on hooking them up last year never got around to it.
  Seems like my round2its take longer older I get

    Finally  Fired one up today and kicked just one of the pumps on awhile ago and it's circulating through three different radiators but only turned on one blower.
   Had the temp down inside to 63 degrees
in about 35 minutes temp is now 76 (4300 sq ft)
If All three blowers were running it would be cooking (to warm for me with just one)

   Will have to get something to hook to thermostat to kill the blower
It's plain to see can't let it run on fan all the time

have to say I am shocked how well it is working :D

Now I wonder how well one would heat an uninsulated building

Now the temp inside has tapered down to 74.6 and seems to be staying there
 The blower fan In The wood heater shuts itself off at 176 degrees
 :) naturally I don't remember what I did with the instructions that came with it
   Imagine I can find them online

Will you be controlling the fans with room thermostats?

     I guess I will have to have an indoor thermostat of some type
For now I just have one of the blower motors inside running in the fan position,
 Didn't really expect the Owb to work as well as it does
This place has three 125 thousand btu propane furnaces to heat it and I turned them off to test it.
    Don't know how to rig blower fan to thermostat for the heater outside
Inside thermostats are still connected up for normal heat and air and so cannot leave fan in heat position
