Warm air distribution for insert and wood-burning stove in individual dwellings

Warm air distribution consists on using the warmth produced by the appliance to dispatch it into the rooms. Warm air is better dispatched in the dwelling, the appliance’s efficiency is thus optimized which involves energy cost saving.

Warm air distribution or heat exchanger.

More than one out of three French houses is equipped with a wood-burning heating appliance. This appliance mainly heats the living room without providing direct heat to the other rooms. This may perhaps be a source of discomfort (heat too intense in the living room) and over-consumption of energy as it is not optimized.

A warm-air distribution system can resolve these disadvantages, as the heat produced by an insert or a wood-burning stove can be dispatched in several rooms through a system of ducts.

The Poujoulat solution: Confort+ warm-air distribution system

Confort + warm-air distribution system is reliable, and optimizes the efficiency of wood-burning heat appliances by recovering the heat produced and redispatching it in the other rooms.

Confort + warm air distribution system is available for installations with insert or wood-burning stoves connected to Poujoulat insulated chimneys.

Confort + warm-air distribution is CERIC Tested.

Principle of the heat exchanger

Confort + warm air distribution is designed to be used with wood burning stoves or inserts, with a log-burning fireplace insert or a wood-burning stove.

The installation runs under positive pressure (the air is regularly pushed). The fan extractor is installed in the attic and takes the air from the room where the heating appliance is set.

The air is pushed into the heat exchanger located in the hood below the insulated chimney. The air is warmed up by contact with the inside wall and continues into the distribution network up to the blowing vents. Finally, the warm air is blown through the ventilation duct and dispatched into the rooms through vents.

Confort+ installation has to be made using a heat exchanger which is determined by the flue’s diameter and Extra’s model.

     The pack includes:

  • - The heat exchanger,

  • - The air inlet adapted to the ventilation ducts diameter


Major points if you plan to install a warm air distribution system

Before installing a warm-air distribution system, we advise you to check that it is adapted to your dwelling:

  • - Select an adapted engine to your network

  • - Define the length and diameter of the warm air distribution network

  • - Choose the heat exchanger pack that matches the flue diameter and the network diameter.
