Lasse Holmes wrote:If your needs are such then it might be reasonable. Hopefully you'd be able to use some of that initial hot radiant heat to do something other than heat the outdoor air! If you can pipe the exhaust directly without a "barrel" through the wall and into mass inside it will be a significant amount of heat kept inside although you will need a high temperature capable wall pass through scene (like excell) and the first bit of mass will be subject to high stresses. Perhaps you might enlighten us as to why you have such needs? canyon

The barrel will be inside of existing fireplace so that it can be hidden if we feel that is necessary, as well. The vent would also be inside of this partially enclosed shelter so as to protect from wind and to keep it warm.
