What's even more impressive is he says he has never, not once, cleaned his chimney...regular inspection only...nothing to clean.The owner of Lampaa stoves has been using his vapor fire for almost 50 years exactly! I'll say it again, longer than most have been alive and longer than even more have been burning or working! The longest he has seasoned his firewood is two years.
Must know something, no? He firebox is the older smaller version (16" length pieces as opposed to 20-21") and the most per year he has burned is 5 cord during a unusually cold year. Otherwise, it's average of 4 cord. And not creosote buildup.
Very easy people to speak with. We should all be that way.
A clip from their website:
And as far as using 4 cords on average per year to heat...that's pretty good considering they are ~15 miles from Canada and considered one of the colder spots in the USA...set a few records IIRC.
