strikemaster handi-heater-sucking up Oxygen

3 posts in this topic

Fellas,

I installed a Handi Heater 15,000 btu by Strikemaster today. The stove sits 18" off of the floor. I have two air vents in the walls. They are about 5-6' off the floor. The heater seems to be sucking all the oxygen out of the house right away. Like 10 minutes tops and you need to open the door or get out. What am I doing wrong?? Do I need to relocate my air-vents?? Right next to the heater and low...as in right, right next to the thing??

Also, when I mentioned above that the stove sits 18" off of the floor, I mean I built a stand for the heater that sits 18" off of the floor. Would this have anything to do with the problem?

Thanks for the help!!

Jason

How are you venting it? I have what sounds like the same unit and it works fine. I have my vent pipe going out through the ceiling with an elbow on top (outside) to direct the venting away from the wind.

Thanks.

Yes I'm venting it through the roof with 3" insulated stove pipe as recommended.

Where should my air intake vents be located?

Where are yours?

Thanks again,

Jason

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
