I plan on installing an RSF wood fireplace (likely Opel) in the family room of my new home (3150 sq ft). I will have an electric heat pump as my main heating source, but am hoping to use as much wood burning as I can, to limit the use of the heat pump. I want to hopefully heat up my whole home as much as I can using the fireplace. I am thinking of installing the central ductwork option, but rather than hooking up to the homes ductwork, I am thinking of running one dedicated duct from the fireplace to the opposite end of the house in an effort to keep the FR from getting too hot AND to send heat to the rest of the home. This opposite end is about a 40 feet run, then a 90 degree turn then another 15-20 feet run, away. See attached floorplan. The blue fireplace in the family room is where my fireplace would be, somewhere in the living room is where I was thinking of running the duct to. 1. Is this a good idea? 2. If it is a good idea, where would you run that ductwork to? 3. What are your thoughts on doing this dedicated duct VS. hooking directly into the central ductwork of the home so that the heat gets sent to ALL rooms, including the 2nd floor bedrooms? Thanks in advance!
