My 18 year old house has a combination Wood and Electric pushed air furnace.
I'll start a fire and eventually the fan starts... typical and expected.
I question what follows. The fan will run for 1 to 2 minutes. In the beginning the ducts barely have time to warm up so the air isn't hot when it comes out.
After a few minutes, the fire is roaring and produces plenty of heat. I even added a tiny 4" fan on the flue pipe to propagate the heat in my shop.
So if this 4" fan is enough to make a small difference in my shop, why isn't the furnace running longer at times?
I had the furnace inspected last winter/spring time. A fuse had popped. He checked it over and said there was nothing wrong with it.
Is there something I can do? I asked if the fan could be upgraded to a two speed fan. I figured that it could run on a lower temperature.
Any advice appreciated.
My last DIY thought was to attach 2x 4" fans on the duct outlet in my shop and having it on a 4-6 hour timer. Fans were free and both would cover a floor vent type duct elbow nicely... this way less of the heat would be wasted up the flue
