New guy here with a few questions.

  • Active since 1995, is THE place on the internet for free information and advice about wood stoves, pellet stoves and other energy saving equipment.

    We strive to provide opinions, articles, discussions and history related to Hearth Products and in a more general sense, energy issues.

    We promote the EFFICIENT, RESPONSIBLE, CLEAN and SAFE use of all fuels, whether renewable or fossil.
One more thing we have noticed, with old stove we got som much ash dust inside our home, my wife likes to keep the house spotless, she works hard at it. And maybe it’s simply because we open the door much less. Or maybe the stove is burning up the file so much better it’s not present anymore. But sh has stated how much less dust is present now in the house.
Yup opening the door less does make a big difference and if your draft is better it will pull more airborne ash up the stack vs spilling into the room.

When we started batch burning with our new stove vs adding splits here and there with the old non epa stove, the ash dust in the house was noticeably reduced.
