OK, lest you think my every move on Sparta has been unscripted, let me assure you that I do plan sometimes. To wit, this heating system I mentioned last post. I have been debating the type (wood, pellet, combo), location and budget for a heater for awhile and lots of time has gone into this heat-transfer system stretching from the living room to bedroom. I want to minimize my demands on electrical and propane and, since I have a mountain destination in mind, figured wood would be readily and cheaply available (if it doesn’t all burn up first). Pictured below are a couple of crude sketches showing my plan:
So all this elaborately planned stuff will go in over the next few days. While I am certainly no HVAC pro, I am hoping 2 – 120 CFM fans, controlled with a cheap thermostst, running over a 12′ span, fed by a 30,000 or so BTU stove with a large collector hood will do the trick. Fingers crossed.
