    I have a stove that is equipped with a damper. Should control the heat with this instead of the air supply.


    Use both. The damper is commonly used after the wood has burned down to embers. Closing it partially at this point will hold the heat into the stove for a longer period of time.

    If you have a newer EPA rated stove that damper might be a bypass damper. If so then you would want to close the damper entirely when the stove reaches temperature. Try to locate a manual for your stove and read the burning tips and articles at the Hearth.com information page.
