Item Information

The Hotblast 1551E add on furnace is designed to use in conjunction with your existing HVAC ductwork and work seamlessly with your existing furnace. It is EPA Certified to be clean burning and meets all current EPA guidelines. With dual 550 CFM blowers and up to 140,000 BTUs it is designed to heat a home up to 2,500 sq. ft. This unit is made with a firebrick lined plate steel firebox with an integrated shaker grate surrounded by grey powder coated steel giving the unit an eye appealing look. Connection to your existing ductwork is easy with the two 8" diameter heat outlets. It has front mounted air controls for precise burn settings. This furnace uses re-burn technology that does not require the use of expensive catalysts making it very easy to maintain. This Furnace also comes equipped with a Digital Thermostat that controls an Automatic damper system that when extra heat is needed it automatically adjusts the air intake to boost the fire and deliver more heat to your home. In addition, we have also included a Universal Filterbox to add the air filter and allow easy hookup to your home's return air system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating Am now married to an unpredictable wood furnace. Automatic draft door faulty out of box. High limit switch faulty. 7 - 21 cold days before can get replacement parts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was forced to buy this for insurance porposes. Had to buy this because of the UL rating. Intructions were alright. Dual blowers don't put out as much as the previous single blower I had. Automatic venturi is having problems after two weeks of operation causing front of stove to glow orange hot because dampner won't shut, it hangs up instead of closing. The cleanout system to me is a joke and a hassel. I want to buy another brick and replace the grate and just shovel out from the feed door. The slide out tray just makes a bigger mess to deal with. I still don't know how "efficient" the burn is. Will climb up on the roof to check creosote buildup in a month or so if a chiminey fire doesn't happen sooner. d:)

Is it permissible to vent one into open air in the basement and the other vent into the ductwork for the first floor? What is the life exptancy of the 1551?

Asked by: Mr Derek
Yes, you can run one duct in the basement and the other upstairs, but keep the following in mind; you will have 50% efficiency. Meaning, ½ of your heat will blow in basement, and ½ will blow into the duct system. Basically the 1100 CFM blower system is now split in half. So you will not pressurize the duct system upstairs and only get 50% heat velocity/flow. Life expectancy depends on the home owner. The manufacturer has some units over 20 years old and going strong.

hi can a power vent be used on for a chimney

Asked by: carl56
YES you can use a power vent for start up on these models. If you home is airtight or the chimney does not draft very well some can be run on low to help the draft.

Would it blow harder with one duct open or better with both of them tied into my duct work.the reason why I ask my old one blew harder on the front one if the back was closed .

Asked by: Trav376
Per the owner’s manual you will need to keep both ducts open for your safety.

How much electric does this product use? How much would you estimate my electric bill go up (on average) using this unit?

Asked by: farleyfan4life
The only electricity that will be used while operating this furnace would be the blowers. The blowers only pull about 1 AMP, therefore with the overall efficiency of this unit you would actually be saving money overtime.

Description says used as "add on". Will it work fine as only heat source?
