Draft Hood

STEVEN MARKSSTEVEN MARKS Member Posts: 154
I am replacing my existing oil burner with a Carlin gas burner. Is it necessary to replace the existing draft regulator with a draft hood? I was told I need to install a draft hood with a spill switch but I do not have the height. If I install the draft hood the vent will be pitched the wrong way.

    Not a draft hood

    a double-swing barometric with blocked-flue switch.



    If you're thinking of doing the conversion yourself- don't. This is not a DIY project. Hire a knowledgeable, experienced pro who has the proper equipment to set up a burner.

    Advice

    Steamhead is absolutely correct.  Whoever recommended a drafthood should be avoided for any further advise!!!
