HELP -Looking for a new/different heat source


Wildie wrote "..
I have a forced air gas furnace with central a/c.
As I also have a wood supply I have and air-tight, free standing wood stove.
I have a collector hood over the stove at ceiling height, that is ducted into the cold air return of the gas furnace.
We set the furnace thermostat down low, put the blower on continuous and fire up the wood-stove.
The wood-stove does a wonderful job of heating 1250 sq/ft until the fire burns out in the night.
Then the gas takes over for the rest of the night..."

That is the same setup I have now except I have oil fired furnace, and the woodstove is very tired. We are putting in a Gas furnace this summer...
