Homemade hot air system
« on: April 08, 2020, 10:25:09 AM »

So I have been trying to find a way to heat my shop with an outdoor furnace and have looked into boilers and hot air systems. I lean towards a hot air system since it will only be used when I want to work in the shop, not continuously, and I think it would heat up faster. I would put a wood burner in the shop but I don't want to take up the space. One thing I considered was buying a small metal shed and putting a wood stove inside of it and insulating the walls really well. Then I could put a blower in the shed and connect a supply and return duct between the shed and the shop and blow the heat into the shop. Has anyone ever tried such an arrangement?
