Project/Wood heat for 2152
The newer house lacks a useful renewable heating system. The fireplace insert has limited capacity and a proper hearth, and will not heat the downstairs effectively.
The simplest wood heating system is to install a wood stove. It should be at the lowest point in the house, to take advantage of convection. It must be installed safely and to code.
Goal or deliverable
- New, high-efficiency woodstove installed in the Big Room on the west wall, including:
- proper hearth to code,
- insulated, enclosed chimney on outside of house.
- Wood delivery closet through the west wall.
- Vents through to one or more upstairs bedrooms.
- Optional "heat dam" vertical blinds across entry of Big Room.
- Ceiling fans:
- In Big Room
- In living room
Timeline, schedule, or end date
Ideally, installed, inspected, tested, refined as needed, and operating before the 2008/2009 heating season.
