Everyone on here has been great! I get a chuckle with every response! Next question... Preparing to buy the stove... My wife is afraid of fire. She has good reason, as her dad's place burned many years ago... no fault of a stove or fireplace, though. When I told her today that the easiest way to get a cold fire, or a restart, going was to crack the door open an inch or so for a bit, she said, "NO WAY IN HELL!". Then, I told her about the bypass damper in the model up from the one I was considering... (Lopi Republic 1750 vs. Endeavor). I told her that a bypass damper helps with airflow with cold starts and restarts. Does a bypass damper eliminate the need for cracking the door during starts? Or, do you still want to crack your door a bit? It would be great if you tell me that you have a bypass damper and you don't need to crack the door during starts. This would justify us spending another 500 bills to get a nicer stove! Whaddaya think?
