I have a Alaska Channing, I cut a six inch hole into the top of the stove only through the top plate, not into the firebox itself. I made a six inch collar with a flange on it and attached it to my stove. In the collar I hooked up a piece of six inch stove pipe going up to a 90 degree elbow. From here I hooked it into a piece of flex duct and ran it into my ductwork from my hot air furnace. It works really well, I'm just using the fans from the stove to push the air into the ductwork, and I blocked off the ports on the stove where the hot air was blown out of the stove, so the air would be re routed up my pipe. My kitchen is the farthest room from my stove (stove in basement) and my basement steps are in my kitchen with no door to the basement. I'm wondering if this is why my kitchen is the coldest room in the house, because the cold air is being forced through the kitchen to go back down the stairwell. Any suggestions?
