How about a different thought, why not a closed water system to a radiator in the duct work in the house, so when you are burning wood you just turn the furnace fan on, if the house is warm the furnace would not start. But I guess that would be building a boiler??

wood boilers are super expensive. After that much expense you would want to do it right with a heat exchanger than goes in the plenum of furnace just like an ac coil
