This was an outright new home when we...

    SootEater capability through a 90° bend in a exterior chimney

    Actually when re-thinking this, the steel disc could be replaced by a wood disc as there is no heat involved here. 6'' wood disc with 1.5'' or 2'' hole in the center of it. What say you on this aspect ? .

    Unhappy after chimney lining

    Yes and no, if only a little additional air leaks in to the stove it will simply pull more precious heat with it while exiting up the chimney, if much air is leaking in to it then it will cause an over fire situation, which is to be avoided as it can be dangerous. It is always a better idea to...

    question about wood and compressed logs

    Should have mentioned above that I do not use any of the referred to as large '' Overnight logs or bricks '' those probably burn 3-4 hours possibly more, the 2&1/2'' to 3'' logs that I have always used never last more than 1 - 1.5 hours max. no matter what brand I have tried, the longest...

    Unhappy after chimney lining

    Your stove venting outlet is 6'', the chimney liner is 6'', there is no problem there. You installed the liner yourself, I am presuming there is no obstruction / restriction of any kind and you double checked this as well as cleaning your stove interior and the that the fan(s) operate(s) fully...

    Help me decide between a Quadra Fire Adventure 3 and a Pacific Energy Summit Wood Stove

    Both Pacific Energy and Quadra Fire are highly reputable stove manufacturers, you can not really go wrong with either. However the Quad you are looking at is more powerful and can heat a larger area than the PE Summit. 2000 - 3000 sq. ft for the Summit up to 4000 sq. ft for the Quad, however...

    Quadra-Fire 3100 Millennium vs. Pacific Energy Alderlea T5 burn characteristics

    Both are highly reputable stove manufacturers. To the best of my knowledge the Alderlea T5 uses the same firebox and burn engine as the Super, Super Heritage, Super Classic, Super 27 and Spectrum Classic, this basic design has been in existence around 30 years now. I have owned mine since...

    question about wood and compressed logs

    I have used them along with cord wood for many many years now, I use them in the morning mostly to heat up the chimney quickly or when atmospheric conditions cause poor draft as these are extremely dry and they throw an incredible amount of heat, however the different brands are not all the...

    can a stove wear out?

    He increased his rate last year, prior to that it was $85.00 for several years. I do the flue and chimney cleaning in May or June and he does it in January, all I do prior to his service call is empty the stove of coals and ashes the morning of his call so the stove is completely cold for him.
