Cooking and heating with wood in basement

2411 Views 11 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  rover
I want to have my basement set up to go to if major winter weather strikes LONG Term and no gas, electric. My heater no longer uses the chimney only the hot water heater. I would like to put something like a oven hood attached to the old heater vent to vent out smoke, can anyone see a problem with this idea??? I am trying to do this as cheap as I can and not leave it in place.

Yes, burning your house down would be an issue with using an oven hood to vent a woodstove.
There is a huge difference in heat values between a regular oven and a woodstove.
I'm also unclear, would you have an open pipe that would release up into a hood? that's a double whammy there if so.
