Well I have never had a chance to discuss this with anyone...
I heat my house with a corn stove which runs 24/7 in the winter time.
Not sure if you are familiar with a corn stove but unlike a furnace that cuts in and out when the house reaches a certain heat and shuts off , the corn stove doesn't . It runs 24 hours a day 7 days a week kicking out very warm air at the same temperature consistently.
We run the stove on the lowest setting there is and still have to open the doors to the great out doors to let the heat out of the house and cool the house down.
( Most of the winter ) ( cold February not so much ) ( but we still don't get overly concerned about heat escaping )
Any way Id like to channel the heat through an old electric dryer just to do the tumbling with the elements disconnected .
I have worked on mechanical and electrical things all my life but never ever played with a dryer.
I am open to a discussion on how to do this and where to start .
I think the first thing is to ask you guys if you think its worth the time and trouble to experiment on this .
what is the operating temperature of the forced air need to be to make this feasible ?
Thanks in advance
This is my corn stove
