    how do you check for a draft in your stove?
    my logs seem to be buring quicker then last year
    I have a vermont casting montpelliar
    logs are 3x4x18 and last one hour with air control closed

    Is it a different species of wood?

    It's pretty cold here so the increased draft might be causing your wood to burn faster.

    Use a lighter around the door and any other place where you think it would be leaking. The flame will be sucked in and obvious at any leak zone.
