    Default Outside or inside combustion air?

    We are planning on building a 24x32 cabin/permanent residence this summer and we plan on using both in-floor heat and a wood stove. My tentative plan is to use outside air as the woodstove's combustion air. The home will be 2x6 construction with 4-5 star energy rating. Wondering what everyone's thoughts were. Thanks

    I do that too; I call it "cracking a window" Air in wood-heated cabins can get quite stagnant, it's nice to have fresh air coming in from different points to circulate the layers.
