In response to Re: gravity heat
I have only seen it done a couple of times. You have to direct the return line to a plenum with the blower in it and then run the outlet back to the furnace. Balancing it can be a problem since the registers do not always have shutters in them.

: I have a house built in 1908 that still has the original coal buring furnace, which has been converted to natural gas. The system is a simple gravity heat, with output ducts to every room and several intake ducts. I know these are inefficient-is there any way to make them more efficient short of replacing them? Can you somehow add fans to force the air to circulate better? Thanks for any suggestions.
