Can you put an aftermarket filter pad on the air intake or will it restrict the air flow too much? I have a constant layer of dust in my house when the furnace is on.
By eFireplaceStore on December 10, 2014
Answer:You could cut and install a low restriction aluminum filter over the inside air intake of the heater. Direct vent heaters usually do not cause issues with dust buildup on the home because of their design. They pull all of their air from the outdoors for combustion and are completely sealed. The circulation of the air across the heat exchanger should not pull in any additional dust from the outdoors, as it is only moving indoor air, like a central air furnace.

Is it normal for the fan to come back on after it has extracted the heat for 10 seconds?
By Brennan W. on December 8, 2016
Answer:This can indeed happen when the unit is cooling. Does it cut itself off after a period of time?
By Ken from CT on February 27, 2016
My heater starts and stops the fan many times after the burner lights, then it runs steady. Is this normal for this heater?
By Brennan W. on March 1, 2016
Answer:The fan should not be operating sporadically, though it does have to reach a certain temperature to operate. You will want to make sure that the heat switch for your blower is in the proper place designated by the manufacturer so that it is getting the proper heat to operate.
