BL34-44 finally up and running
« on: November 29, 2017, 08:00:34 AM »

Well guy's, I finally got it all hooked up and producing heat last Sunday at 3:15 I started the first fire.  Just in time for a heat wave moving through, it was 64 here on Monday and mid 50's yesterday.  I had to open some windows for awhile last night because it was too hot!  It's going to take some time to get it all lined out.
Thanks for all the good posts and support to my questions.

I have really learned a lot so far this week!  Darn weather switched around and we had 5 days over 50 and 3 of those days into the 60's so trying to get everything lined out has been a pita!  Starting tomorrow we are supposed to have highs in only the 30's and a couple nights down well into the teens so I'm sure it will be going much better.  Haven't boiled it over or anything, just getting too much convection current through the furnace heat exchanger and its been too warm in the house.  Currently keeping the main pump on the low speed setting to start with.  Not quite sure how far to have the draft slide plate on the blower fan open so am experimenting with that and also keeping the factory settings on the fan and aquastat the same for now.  Won't be able to do any cost comparisons on electricity until after the holidays, thanks to all the Christmas lights.  LOL
