Remote Ducting

Remote Ducting 

Acucraft’s Remote Ducting is a great way to maximize your fireplace and its heating potential. With the use of Remote Ducting, you have the ability to heat your entire home with your fireplace. To install this option is cost effective and offers a huge return. Customers who have a wood burning fireplace enjoy this option because it requires very little gas or electric to heat their home during the colder season.

Acucraft’s Remote Ducting option aids in the goal of heating your home evenly, eliminating cold spots. The Remote Ducting option uses B-Vent pipe to vent heated air to other areas of your home. You can vent to another room on the same floor, upstairs or even below with the use of an in-line blower (this feature differs from the fireplace blower). Additionally, you are able to connect your Remote Ducting System into your cold air return and use your furnace fan to evenly distribute the heated air throughout your home, also eliminating cold spots.

The diagram shows the remote ducting taking the heat from the fireplace and transferring it to the furnace for distributing heat throughout the home using the existing ducts. Many of our customers have the duct end at the basement ceiling; with an in-line blower in the basement ceiling. Turning on the in-line blower allows the heat to be transferred to the basement.

The Heating Duct can transfer up to 70% of the heat generated by the fireplace. The Z-MAX is capable of 130,000 BTU’s an hour. The average furnace is under a 100,000 BTU’s an hour.
The remote ducting is a great feature that is included in the Acucraft’s Whole Home Heating Technology.

Acucraft has specialized in designing See Through Wood Indoor Fireplaces for over 20 years. We have 24 key ratios in every See Through Fireplace we make. See Through Wood Fireplaces are a great way to have a fireplace in two rooms or separating a large room with one flue system. Many clients enjoy the exposed flue because it takes less visual space and is cost effective. Acucraft provides class A flue for exhaust and clients will either paint the flue or wrap in their own noncombustible material.

The See Through Wood Indoor Fireplace allows air within your home to enter into the two bottom louvered vents. It becomes heated by the system, as well as the insulated panel enclosure. The heated convection air rises and circulates out two top heat vents.

One side of the See Through Fireplace has two control handles; one for the damper and one for the combustion air. The combustion air enters at the top of the doors providing an air wash. The air wash is designed to keep clean outside air coming across the glass. We call this the Great Room Side.

The other side has one control handle, controlling the combustion air entering on that side of the fireplace. The damper controls the burn time and the combustion air controls the amount of heat. Acucraft’s See Through Fireplaces give you total control of your fireplace from fully open to fully closed.

All Acucraft Fireplaces come with two 220 CFM blowers with variable speed control, which provides additional control over the speed of the heated airflow. The blowers arrive installed; many clients will install the variable speed control box on the outside of the fireplace or an interior wall.
