Optional Accessory Details

Cardboard Frame Air Filter with Support

The Cardboard frame air filter with support allows you to use regular disposable 20" x 15" x 1" cardboard air filters. An air filter is required to prevent dirt, dust or debris, from entering the hot air ducts into the living space. The frame provides everything necessary to support a 20" x 145" x 1" cardboard air filter. Air filter included.

Cold Air Return Housing with Filter

The cold air return with filter is recommended to ensure the system has proper static pressure so the hot air distribution is running correctly and evenly. You may run this to an existing cold air return. The cold air return should be constructed in a way that the volume of the cold air return is equal or slightly higher than the volume of the hot air distribution. This kit will give you everything you need to allow the cold air returns to connect to the furnace. A 10" x 15" x 1" cardboard air filter is included.

Triple Hot Air Supply Adapter Kit

The triple hot air supply kit allows you to easily add three 6" diameter hot air ducts off one side of the appliance. The Heat Commander is approved for a minimum of 6" hot air ducts and a maximum of 10 hot air ducts. This can be used to attach the furnace plenum. Or, used to connect to the homes hot air distribution. Gasket is included to make a tight seal. Hot air ducts sold separately.

Washable Aluminum Air Filter with Support

Tired of constantly running to the store to replace your furnace air filters. The 20" x 15" x 1" washable aluminum air filter will be the last air filter you purchase. Simply remove the air filter and wash it with soap and water. A filter spray can be used to enhance the efficiency and make the next cleaning easier. The aluminum air filter can be used with the cold air return kit.

The Heat Commander is EPA rated and has a HHV rating of 75% which qualifies for the wood and pellet stove tax credit through the end of 2032.
