Pellet stove question
Ok...getting closer to getting the house project buttoned up and we still have to get the HVAC system back up with all the ducts as they were removed during the gutting process. We've decided to keep the HVAC system instead of going with my dream of a hot water system due to the responses from other questions on this forum.
My question is: would a pellet stove installed now keep the house warm enough to prevent freezing of the pipes and such? The walls will be approx R-20 and the ceiling in the second floor approx R-60 with an uninsulated field stone foundation (uninsulated for now).
I'm thinking I could install a pellet stove quickly as it is getting colder and then have the freedom to install my duct work at a less stressed pace. I'm having a hard time finding someone who really knows what they are doing in this field to consult with as far as duct layout.
House is a 1,500 sq foot four-square with hip roof, balloon framed, with updated windows. Thanks much!
