All items come with the Chalet, Charmaster or Charmaster II Deluxe models except the Cold Air Return
HOT AIR PLENUM
A Hot Air Plenum is the metal box required between all hot air furnaces and the ductwork system. Our plenums are custom made of 26 gauge galvanized metal. 24"L x 28" W x 30"H.
AUTOMATIC AIR INTAKE
(Part of the Power Outage Package)
The Automatic Air Intake is a 10x20 inch unit that will mount over an opening cut into your furnace jacket.
The 10x20 inch door will be opened and closed by a 110 volt motor. The door is held closed while your blower is running. Thus you would have a typical forced air furnace operation.
When your furnace blower is not running, the 10x20 inch door will automatically open. With the door in the open position, your furnace will be operating as a GRAVITY HEAT SYSTEM.
With Gravity Heat, your blower will run less often, saving you money on your
electic bill and providing more even heat. Standard 10x20 inch furnace filters
are used in this unit for complete air filtration.
SMOKE PIPE KIT
The Smoke Pipe Kit for our Chalet, Charmaster and Charmaster II is required for all installations. The 8" inside diameter pipe is constructed of extra heavy 24 guage galvanized metal. The kit inlcudes (2) 90" adjustable elbows, (2) 24" smoke pipes, (1) tee, (1) non-galvanized drawband and (1) manual damper (if required) Wood/Oil Smoke Pipe Kit also includes one extra 24" smoke pipe, tee, and barometric draft control.
COLD AIR RETURN
The cold air return (16"x20"x80" high) can greatly increase the efficiency
of your wood furnace and help in the circulation of heat in your home. Most basement
heating installations would include a cold air return. Our volume buying saves
you money. It is custom made to fit a Chalet, Charmaster or Charmaster II furnace,
and includes an air filter. This can be installed on either side of the furnace.
SAFETY HEAT DUMP
(Part of the Power Outage Package)
The Safety Heat Dump is mounted on any side of your hot air plenum. A 10"x20" door
is held closed by a spring and fusible link. This door remains closed as long
as the furnace blower cycles, and the furnace heat is being forced out through
your hot air duct work system.
Should your home experience an ELECTRICAL POWER OUTAGE, the furnace blower would
not function. During that time, your plenum temperature may reach 280 degrees
or more. At that time a fusible link will melt in the Safety Heat Dump, allowing
the 10"x20" door to open, to let the hot air escape safely into your basement.
This safety system, which is exclusive with Charmaster, prevents your duct work
from overheating. Three fusible links are included with every Safety Heat Dump,
and replacements are available from Charmaster.
