Should a wood burning fireplace (with outside combustion air intake) pull auxiliary convection air from outside or inside the home?
I have purchased a Quadra-Fire 7100FP Wood Burning fireplace for my new home. It has an “Auxiliary Convection Air” feature that can be routed to the outside or as a cold air return to another part of the home. I am assuming this should be routed as a cold air return inside the home so as to not bring in outside air in that will then pressurize the home. What do you think?
