    If you run it to the cold air return you can use the furnace blower to distribute the heat.

    I would caution you to care for the chimney and those vents very carefully. The house across the street burned down because of a failure in the joints around the same kind of set up. The owner cleaned the chimney but he didn't get those vents.
