    Will begin construction on new 2400sq.ft. well-insulated home at the end of May. Heating system plans have gone from a wood gasification boiler w/hydronic radiant heat, to a soapstone Woodstock Fireview fireplace w/ natural gas backup, and now to a secondary burn or catalytic fireplace with central heat ducting option (like the Napolean or Fireplace Xtrordinaire) with natural gas backup.

    Am looking to burn wood as my primary heat with a natural gas forced air system to back it up and fall back on if I ever choose not to burn wood or sell. Can you tie-in a Napolean or Fireplace Xtrordianair into the natural gas furnace ductwork? Anybody using a Napolean, Xtrordinaire, or similar system. Am also looking at getting the most bang for my buck over the long haul.

    Looking for input - positive and/or negative.... any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Lumbajac
