Hey guys...I've been buring with wood my whole life but with a wood stove. I'm in the early stages of research into indoor wood furnaces. The only reason i'm considering going with a furnace is for heat distribution throughout the whole house. The new house will be a colonial close to 3000 sq ft. My thought is to have the wood furnace piggy back with the gas furnace, all pushing through a forced hot air system. I am still going to have a wood burner (most likely a zero clearance fire place) on the 1st floor, but it won't be the main heater. We want to keep a lot of the mess that goes along with wood burning to the basement. So, I just don't know enough about wood furnaces. I'd love to see what some of you are running and your experiences. The do's and don'ts and the "would do it this way next time". Any help or guidance you guys can provide would be excellent. Thanks in advance.
