Last night, I fired up our first wood stove for the very first time. Been itching to fire it up since the stove was inspected on Friday. Temp was about 65F outside. I opened up the windows and sliding glass door to cool off the place so as to not heat us out too bad. I made a kindling fire and tossed on a notched cut piece that was cut from a tree last spring. When I opened the door an inch or so, The flames absolutely raced, sounding like air rushing up the chimney. Is this a sign of a really good draft? They acted normal burning steadily but yet calm with the door closed. I didn’t try screwing with the primary air supply at all. I left it full open. That'll be for the next time. No smoke spillage when opening the door which I did multiple times as I was using lots of kindling pieces. Even though it was dark, I checked the chimney Using the flashlight, I could barely tell it in use. For a small kindling fire. The stove kicked off a good amount of heat for a small, short fire. Everything was turned to ash. Very amazed by this. I am used to making fires in the firepit and having the ends of sticks and logs not burn when they are not in the center of the fire.
