Hello Last year I bought a house with a hearth mounted double door Virginian stove from Virginia Stove works. I have not been able to find ANY information on this stove. My google skills must be lacking. I have also done several searches and perused lots of threads on here, but to no avail. The stove is in the basement family room and is vented through a ceramic chimney with no SS liner. Does anyone have any info on this stove? I would really like to know where to get an owners manual. Overall, it seems to be in decent shape. Last fall, after moving in, I had a pro take a look at the chimney and stove and received his blessing to heat my house with it. He did recommend a liner, but stated that the chimney was in good shape and that he would not hesitate to use it. I used it to heat the basement only last year (about 1000 square feet) with no problems. This year, I have been wanting to heat the entire house (the stove is big enough), but there are a couple of things that worry me: 1) the front doors are whitened, presumably from overheating 2) there is no chimney damper 3) there is no gasket on the doors, but it looks like there isnt supposed to be. However, there is a visible gap so I think that I might add a gasket to them anyway. What can it hurt? Any info that you all can help with will be greatly appreciated.
