Eh? Flue Heat

Our heating is a Ultimate ( Australian brand) that is to heat up to 25 square ?? our house is 16square .The heater is instaled where there was an open fire place so the flue goes up where the chimney is and made of brick.
It will heat 1/2 the house , my thoughts are to take out some of the bricks at the top of the chimney and pipe the heat through to the other end of the house with some ducted points coming out of the duct .
I was hoping to use a transfer fan kit to move the heated air .
The house has a cathedral ceiling all the way through and no roof space .
Has anyone got any thoughts on this or info on how to acheive this system??????
Thanks Tezza

This is just me, but:

I wouldn't mess with the flue...for a couple reasons... especially if I understand what you are saying; that you want to create a horizontal flue at the top of the house before exiting the house:
  1. It will be more difficult to create a proper draft
  2. It will make it difficult to clean
  3. It could be an attractive place for animals to live during the summers, thus increasing the risk of them bringing debris etc there for a nest...
  4. It will require a second roof penetration (increasing cost and likelihood of leaks etc)
  5. It will cost a fair amount to do
I might suggest creating a hood somewhere above the stove and use ductwork to deliver the heat where ever you want it.. If you use an inline fan in the ductwork you can control the amount and timing of the heat distributed.

I've seen this in houses with a stove in the basement... it works good and is pretty simple...

In your case if you have a basement you can actually create cold air returns by running ducts from the under the floor of the cold rooms back to the stove area to help the convective flow... it helps dissipate the excess heat in the area where the stove is and warms the other rooms nicely...

Holy cow! That's a whole lotta stacking. I hope you stay warm.


I'm ready for winter too.

Hot air is tough to move around to the far reaches of your house.......keep it simple like ceiling fans and have much respect for what can happen during a chimney fire.

Lots of smart folks here:

Are their arrangements that provide for heat exchangers, so you could tie in existing HVAC ductwork to pipe the heat elsewhere? I'm talking about the kind of thing that pipes in clean interior air, separated from the fuel/exhaust air, & pipes the hot air back out to ductwork that had already been put in for the AC.

Thumb Ducting heat

The flue is rinning in the old chimney and all i want to do is take the heat out of the chimney area and not cut into the flue .
It would be great if i had a basement but in Australia it is not common to have a basement , our house is on ground level and on concrete slab.
I do want to use a transfer fan to move the heat about 45feet to the sleeping areas .
I still need some info if there is any about ducting heat.
Thanks Tezza

+1 for Rocket stoves if efficiency is to be a prime factor!

The lost heat is sitting at the top of your cathedral ceiling.You cant duct it without running ducts through the rooms that you need to pass through to get to the rooms you want to heat.

The only other way i can think odf is a wetback to heat water for radiators in the area you want to heat.

Ducting heat

I know that i will have to use duct to transfer the heat , using a wet backand radiators would be great but the house is built on a cement block and we have no way of getting water pipes under the house.
We have the wood heat in the old fire place and has been there for 10 years .
Thanks Tezza

This little stove came with my house and was in the garage for 25 years.
The liner was burned out and it was pretty rusty. I took it apart and put in a new liner, blasted the other parts and had the foot rests and feet powder coated chrome.

First fire in the big stove tonight!!!!





Wooooo..whoooooooo!!!..



Getting to heating season....

Been running the little stove a night here and there to get the chill out.... but it is good to get the big one fired up for the first time of the year.... Kinda like firing up a big tractor that has been sitting all winter.... not sure how it is going to go... it has to burn off any humidity that has been collecting and first fire always smells different.....

Two hours in... and running great..... needs a good cleaning before the real season gets underway... but the new metallic catalytic converter that replaced the ceramic one cleaned up nice with a little compressed air (which is strictly prohibited with ceramics) and is running like a charm..

Six cords are stacked.... Ready to rock and roll......

Glad I cleaned out the stovepipe last weekend, have had a fire since last Friday night.

Forecast in the 70's & maybe 80's by the weekend.

Got to love this time of year
