I have recently installed a pellet stove with an inox chimney. I realized that the chimney actually warms a lot and part of this heat ends up being dissipated outside the house (where chimney goes out).
I was thinking about ways of optimizing the system. It would be desirable to dissipate as much heat as possible inside since that's the goal of having such a stove.
Part of the chimney is hidden behind the stove and I was thinking of putting on this area some heatsinks to dissipate as most heat as possible inside the room.
Would an aluminium heatsink work? The chimney gets very hot (I haven't checked yet) and aluminium is used in systems up to 200 degrees as far as I know.
Would this be a good idea? would it work?
