In today’s post we are going to talk about wood stoves inserts again, but this time, we are going to talk about how to channel hot air from the wood cassette or insert.
In the case of Panadero wood stoves, only the inserts can be ducted. You can see our ductable models by clicking here.
Why is it important to duct the air from a fireplace?
Fireplaces and wood stoves inserts are practical, useful, easier to clean and, in addition, the use of wood makes it possible to enjoy economic savings on bills.
The installation is the most important part to guarantee an optimal use of resources such as firewood and heat, as well as avoiding risks such as poor combustion, smoke problems, excess soot, etc.
Due to their design, fireplaces or wood stoves cannot heat more than one room or part of your home. If you want to enjoy the warmth of the fireplace in the other rooms of your home, you will need to know how to channel the air from the fireplace.
Ducters are used to distribute the warm air that originates in the different rooms.
What are their benefits?
With a little investment, you can get the most out of your wood stove. Here are the benefits!
Ducting fireplaces allows you to save money. This is because you do not need to invest in other heating methods for the other rooms of your home, since you can distribute the hot air that forms the wood stove to all areas of your home.
This installation generates an additional value, but, in balance with the costs of gas and electricity, it is worth the expense, as the costs do not outweigh the benefits.
The duct system works through grids that are installed in the rooms. Therefore, you can choose the orientation of the warm air, as well as decide whether or not to close the louvers to your liking.
Any heating method leaves its mark on the environment. In the case of wood-burning stoves, and in accordance with the Ecodesing 2022 standard, their impact is miniscule. Moreover, wood is a renewable energy.
What do you need to pipe a chimney?
