"those are very smart ideas to implement thumbsup still interested in looking at a high efficiency wood stove/fireplace, the ones with "EGR" that reburn the flue gasses. they stink much less too! [/quote]



A lot can be done with wood stoves, but you soon run up against stove certification/Home insurance.

Even adding a Water heat exchanger will likely void your insurance.

My friends with the Agga effectively have no insurance. Fortunately they DO have commonsense.

There is lots of Power available to us, it's just not always available when we want it.
Storage is Key!

i think what you are trying to do is NOT reinvent the wheel but make the best use of the things we already have. very very smart.
