I've read this question, it doesn't really answer what I need to know. What I would like to do is install a wood stove (the old pot belly iron kind that you can get used for $300-$500) outside. I currently have a heat pump as my main HVAC system, with a LP fireplace that heats one room upstairs. I am working on finishing my basement and would like to know if it is feasible to have the wood stove outdoors and connect it to ductwork for the current HVAC system. Would this work? Would it be better to make a place for it in the basement?
I've seen outdoor wood furnaces by Central Boiler, but they are more than I'd like to pay, and a bit overkill for what I'm planning to use it for.
