So the big orange big box store had some 8" duct on sell today, SO that is what I got!!

I used some left over duct from another project as well, total cost today was $20. Total cost if bought all today maybe $60ish?

6" right angle and 6" fan.

I stuff foam all around the fan, I wanted ZERO vibrations.

I also put foam on the brick hearth, I wanted ZERO vibrations.

And this is the install, I will paint in hammered bronze, and extend in another foot or so. This was just for testing.

The temp at the same height the air blows out at.

The temp of the air coming out!! And this is with 2 fans still going on low. Of course numbers don't matter as much. The success/fail will matter in added comfort.

And a thermal just for fun.

So some good things I have learned, This works best for me because of the high ceilings, the wood heater, and the fact that I put it against the chimney to pull any added heat from it.

Right now the fan is kinda loud, so I will be looking for a quieter 200ish cfm fan.

I post more data the longer it runs.
