The new fire place had fan package option that would allow heat to be transferred to another room. I had no problem with that but it also showed a detail where you would hook a duct from the R/A of the heating unit to the fire place. I told the owner I would not hook the fire place to the furnace no matter what the instructions said. The furnace was in the attic and the system was filtered at the grills for one and the air that is drawn around the fire box passes over the gas flex and valve. Has any body ever ran in to a fire place with this type of air transferee? I don’t think the furnace manufacture would want it done but I didn’t call them.
