burner adjustment

John Dirks Jr

Recommended Posts

I'm tuning up my old Mueller gas furnace circa 1962. I got the burners all cleaned and blown free of debris.

Once I get it back together I plan to adjust A/F ratio. I know this is done by rotating the discs on the ends of the burners.

What kind of flame characteristics am I looking to achieve?

The yellow is incompletely oxidized natural gas going out the flue, taking with it some of the heat that was produced by the gas that did manage to get oxidized.

Don't some folk use wood burning stoves up there?

I've a ton or two of oak from a tree I took down last year. Looking to buy one to augment my electric strip heater.
