black steel heat, part two

in this thread, i mentioned i'd like to try this system.
black steel 2" heating, is it safe?

my next questions, naturally, have to be, will the inspector pass it as a heating system, and if so, do i still have to have that propane furnace installed? i'd really like to not have it any more. in other words, i guess, can a woodstove be the only heat in a residence, legally?

National code has nothing against a wood stove for sole central heating sourse.

But, it requires that it be able to heat the whole house to 65 365/24/7.

Local codes may have restrictions though.

And of course. if you have a fire. And don't have a UL approval for that type of heating configuration. If you have a fire, your insurance company, doesn't have to pay.
