Be interesting to see what price you could purchase a Tundra furnace for.
I did the same thing. Removed all I could, bricks, door, blower, etc... Appliance dolly and three guys. It frigin sucked. Still havnt removed my hotblast. Kinda wanna take up in pieces. My stairs start in a hallway and stairs end at my basement wall. No straight shots.
i will pay you $200 over cost.
Post # 655 on page 33..."well after taking 2 days to read this whole thread. i have to make a choice. saturday i am going to go look at a psg caddy wood only. right now i use a drolet ht2000. but we want to centralize our heat throughout the house. with the caddy, blower, and fan limit i can get it for $1677. and the drolet heatmax/tundra i can get it for $1300. I do have a question, with the heatmax, do you have to hook up the cold air return?"
Did you buy from Menard's or ?
Have you guys looked at a powered stair walking dolly? A friend of mine rented one to put a gun safe on the second floor, best $46 ever spent!
Thanks for the tip. I am going to mock up a foot print of the furnace and make sure I can maneuver it from garage down stairs to basement.
Anyone running a barometric damper oon their tundra. I just installed one. Haven't had a change to fire it up yet. If there is little draft will this help increase the draft? If the damper door stays shut it should run like a normal flue pipe correct? Haven't uused one before. The other day my draft ran up to 08wc and then down to 03. I decided to install one to stabilize the draft at 05-06wc.if I add 2 ft onto my chimney would this increase the draft ? Any help thanks.
1. No, does not increase the draft, only stabilizes/lowers it.
2. Yes, for the most part.
3. Yes, more height will = more draft...
You'll need to use a manometer to set the BD correctly, it sounds like you already have one, so that's good. I have my manometer mounted on the walll, leave it hooked up all the time just to verify that the BD is working correctly
Hi guys, first post, been lurking for a few months. I installed a Tundra in October and have been happy with it. I have a thermostat hooked up and it heats my 1200 sqft. ranch nicely. Today while refilling I noticed a crack about three inches long on the front of the furnace near the bottom left corner of the door. It starts at the spot where they cut the whole for the door and runs horizontal. It is open enough for me to see the glow of the coals, after inspection I found another crack about 3/4 " at the top corner of the door. Bummer, I'll be calling Rural King and SBI tomorrow.
Wow maybe it was damaged in shipping or moving it in and starting to get worse as it was used or maybe as unlikely as it is you got a lemon out of the thousands already sold ..regardless that should easily be warrantied and in my experience they are a good company if you have a concern or issue get some pictures write down the serial number and call they will want you to send the pictures of the damage to the tech support via email
Sounds like a lemon hopefully they take care of you
I'm still pondering between tundra and caddy
How can the caddy not be a slam dunk. It's a proven good efficient problem free furnace that you don't hear any negatives about. The tundra is the opposite.
sometimes a few extra bucks are worth a lot more in the end. I understand affordability but if there is any way to save a little more for a proven good product even if it takes a year or 2. Especially in this case.
I agree. A week ago I was going to buy a englander 28-3500 but then I send the tundra
This goes out to all the moderators....Who deleted me post? Who deleted my account? WHY???? Real good for a new member to experience this crap!
I'm a mod. I didn't delete you, it might have been another mod , but if you signed up and posted last night, chances are it got deleted as part of a server change that happened last night. If so, I apologize. A lot of posts from last night went missing.
Back in the day, I was once riding with a Blue Ribbon guzzling guy that managed to make an eigth mile of posts go missing...
That VW was no match for the corner post though.
