Chuck, does your radon system cause draft issues? Secondly, do you have bug issues with that much wood inside?

;em Luahna is a beautiful name, much better than naming her after the adjacent butte.

Hi Pertzbro. I have not noticed any negative draft problems since installing the radon system. The system runs 24/7, but it's only meant to pull air from under the slab in the basement and evacuate it out at the back of the house; it doesn't seem to pull any air from the basement. In fact, the only time I ever had a problem with draft was when I tried to start a fire with a cold stove and didn't realise that the wife was running the clothes dryer upstairs... that caused a few smoky moments of panic in the basement, but we soon got it under control.... Haven't had any "bug" problems at all with the wood in the basement, but then the wood is nice and dry, been seasoning for 2 years....

But she is laying on some pink blankies;)

PS My oldest daughter's first word was "hot" due to the woodstove ... you may find the same happening at your house!

I have two wood stoves. One insert (regency i1200) and one free standing(Drolet HT2000). I only run them both at the same time if it is -10*c or colder (not my rule, it's the wife's), but will often put a fire in the insert just because.

The radon system should be completely sealed from inside air, the inlet to the radon pipe is installed under the concrete pad, the piping then goes to a blower and the air goes outside. The air getting sucked out from under the foundation is replaced by air coming in from around the foundation on the outside.
