No that would cause a ton of problems.
I will likely put a duct around the stove pipe to recover heat trying to escape and blow that into the house.

The coal furnace is completely seperate from the heat pump so I can easily power it's blowers with my UPS or forklift battery backup.

Those tips seem very useful but I wouldn't do such stuff because of the wood. You always need a wood for your stove, isn't it? I had a situation a couple of years ago when termites started eating an old boat in my basement. After that, they spread out all over the basement and started eating all the wooden constructions. I had to spent over 2400 bucks to get rid of them... Now I'm trying to carry wood as less as possible (read here what you'll have to face after termites' invasion). Different insects are really a problem in our area.

We don't have termites here.
I keep the wood kinda far fromthe house mainly because grass fires that could light up my wood piles.

Plus if the fire wood was properly split and seasoned the termites would be long gone before being burned.

Bugs, all the more reason to find and burn coal.

That sounds like it should be enough.
