    Question:

    I have a Fisher brand stove which has two air inlets on the front. The inlets can be adjusted in to allow no airflow- or they can be adjusted all the way out to allow more air in.My question- which settings should I have the inlets set at to maximize heat output and not burn all the wood up right away ?



    Answer:

    Generally- they will be opened during the first stages of the fire- when moisture and gases needed to be burned off- and partially closed when the fire is at the ember stage. You always want to keep a "flame" on the fire- don't smolder it- or the unburned gases will go up the chimney and condense (creosote)
