Wood Burning fireplace in PGH
My wife and I are in the process of finalizing the design of our HP home located in Central Ohio(CZ5). We are building to PGH+ standards with a focus on air sealing. The home is all electric and 3,200sf plus 1,400 of eventually finished basement. Originally agreed upon was to omit a fire place in exchange for one outdoors. However, I have lost this battle in the end. Does anyone have recommendations for air tight fire places? The HVAC design is already complete with a ventilating dehu and 2 ducted heat pumps serving East and West sides of the home. Does anyone have experience with zero clearance woodburner/ fireplace that doesn’t have a huge energy penalty the other 360 days that it is not in use?
