Hey guys, figure there's no time like the present to start trying to get what help/advice I can regarding the install of my wood furnace. I plan to take some measurements and draw up a rough sketch of the layout of my house soon to better explain what I have to work with and the best options to accomplish what I'm trying to do. Quick history: bought my house in June 2016, had chimney relined the following February and started trying to use the Fisher Papa Bear in the basement. Didn't use it too long as it was a pretty mild winter so little knowledge/experience was gained. Fired it up again this past Nov. and began my battle of trying to get heat out of the basement with little success. We ended up setting up the air mattress in the basement during the really cold weeks in Jan., nearly ran out of wood and decided to shut it down and pay electric bills for the remainder of winter while researching wood furnaces. Basement is partially finished but not enough to really improve heating. a few quick questions to start with. I want to run a main duct from it into the trunk line that runs across the basement ceiling but going all the way to the air handler from the furnace is gonna be quite a long run. I'm thinking I can run a duct into the end of the trunk line at the end opposite of the air handler and install a one way damper or something similar to stop the air from going all the way down into the air handler itself. I'm just not sure if the fan on the Heatpack will be enough to push heat all the way through the ducts. I know this will be easier to "diagnose" when I get measurements drawn up. If so is it possible to build the plenum with one ot two 8" ducts coming off like most regular furnaces have? the plenum kit it came with has 10 6" ducts coming off it in all directions. my other thought if tapping into the end of the trunk line wont work is to just run separate ducts from the furnace and cut new registers. I also have a weird shaped duct running up to the loft and the two registers up there. If I go with separate heating ducts is it possible to tie into that duct? it would probably be 30' run just to get over to where that duct starts going up through the house. I'll also post pics as I go to help clarify what I've got to work with. I'm determined that we aren't gonna be wearing hoodies and extra pants to stay comfy in the house next winter. Thanks in advance for any help I may receive.
