This fan yokey, suitably modified, coupled with ventilation pipes could turn a stove into a home heating system, no?
If you werent worried about noise transmission as FB2 says, you would be better pulling the air, so you would need a duct coming from other rooms, and the fan sucking out of it, blowing over the stove. I can see this causing dust issues though
My own plane was to have a passive air inlet into the top of the room, with a fan on a thermostat on the bottom pulling the colder air back into the 'heating room'. I plan to noise insulate these rooms
I plan to build all the rooms around a large living area, so minimal heat transmission is needed in the first place, and build a radiant masonry stove, if I can attract the right man to help me build it. It will be the first part of the house to be built, everything else will be built around it (for other reasons)
This would allow one simple ventilation point, in the form of a trombe wall
. The only other outside air supply would be directly to the stove
