Outdoor Wood Stove Hot Air or Hot Water


You're getting a new wood stove and you have many decisions to make. Other than brand, you need to decide whether you will use hot air or hot water to get the heat from the wood stove to the living space.

If you have a hot water heating system already installed then you obviously need to have a water stove. If you are thinking about what to install in a new home or already have hot air then you need to consider what will be the best option for you.

Now if you are installing a new system then you want to go hot water. That is by far the best way of heating and will be the best way to heat using an outdoor wood stove. Hot water heating is one of the best ways to get great heat transfer from the fire to the water to the air.

If you have hot air heat and want to heat with wood then you can install a wood hot air furnace, and set it beside your existing furnace. The ductwork will have to be reworked to get the heat from the wood furnace to the existing ductwork. Or you can install a coil into the ductwork on the supply side of the furnace, for the water to run through from a hot water wood burner. This is probably the best way to heat if you have a hot air furnace. Installing the hot water coil is a very simple process and the piping is fairly easy to hookup.

Hot air wood furnaces are almost always a inside the structure appliance, which means that you have the mess of the wood and the ashes inside. This dust and dirt mess is something that is much better kept outside where it can be cleaned up much easier.

Bottom line here is that you want to use a hot water wood burning stove if you can. You will be much happier with the heat that you get from burning wood.

I bought a house with stove in it. seems to be in good condition. Has no damper and no adjustable drafts. is this right?


Usually not a good idea to have no adjustments to the flu or the combustion air supply. Those two directly effect control over the fire and without them, it is just a bonfire in an enclosed space. I know of no manufacturer that makes a stove without combustion air control (front damper) of some type. You cannot safely operate the stove with too low or too high of flu temperature and you achieve that happy medium by controlling the fires air supply and flu draft.

Smoke comes out of draft vent and everywhere when starting a fire


Ugh, my husband does this... You have to start the fire so that it does burn hot enough to force the smoke up the chimney (and, yes, make sure the chimney valve is open!). To do this, keep building the fire in baby steps: light with balled up paper beneath a "teepee" of kindling and keep the door open. Once enough kindling is burning, add a couple pieces of larger wood (make sure all is very dry, especially to start) and start closing the door, but make sure the vent is open all the way. Once the wood is burning, add a couple more larger pieces and begin closing the vent - a little at a time, checking every few minutes. No, you don't have to stare at it the whole time, but keep checking. After awhile, you can fill the stove with very large pieces of wood and have the vent closed far enough to lower the flames to very small - but not to smothering totally. This is where the heat really starts and your room gets warm!

How do I keep the seal in place on the door of the century wood burning stove.


Go to the local hardware, Lowe's or Home Depot and look for a product called "Gasketing Cement and Stove Sealer". Meeco's Red Devil is one manufacturer of the product. It withstands temps up to 2000 degrees. Cut the tip and run a moderate sized bead in the groove of the door or the front of the stove. Place the pre-cut NEW non-asbestos gasket in place and tamp it in lightly with your fingers. Then close the door to mold the gasket to the surface and don't disturb it until the sealant cures....ususally onernight or a full day while you are at work. Do not have a fire in the stove at the time.

Troubadour wood stove


Look up companies locally that can cut glass for CERAMIC glass only and get a rope gasket from a local stove company along with stove cement. Not the best solution and I can't guarantee it won't break again but that is the type of glass that would be utilized on a wood stove since the manufacturer is no longer in business.
You can also search on the internet for replacement parts for that manufacturer. It would be aftermarket but at least it would be the whole door.
Your other option is to replace the wood stove that takes the same size flue pipe as the Troubadour wood stove you have. Sorry not great answers but when these manufactures go under for a while its like trying to find parts for a studebaker. Sometimes you just have to make do.

How is air supply regulated in wood burning stoves?


To regulate air flow, there are damper devices built into the stove, flue and stove pipes. Keeping the air flowing correctly through a wood-burning stove is essential for safe and efficient operation of the stove. Fresh air needs to enter the wood compartment to provide oxygen fuel for the fire; as the fire burns, the smoke must be allowed to rise through the stove pipes, and exit through the chimney.

How do i get even heat thru out the house with a daka wood stove


http://www.hearth.com/talk/categories/main-hearth-forums.4/
You burn wood, and smoke goes up flueway.
You're not running chimney smoke through ductwork so you have a heat exchanger.
What kind of heat exchanger?
probably air since you're running through ductwork?
How much hot air or hot water is coming off heat exchanger?
How big of a space can be heated with that amount of heat?
Is the exchanger located in optimal location?

Considerations.
One room log cabin with fireplace will not stay very warm.
One room house with big wood burning stove in center, with hot flue pipe running across the room and exiting on far wall, will get warm-hot, but will cool off fast.
Why?
Because the BTU output of firewood is much less than electric, coal, oil, or gas.
Otherwise they would have made wood-burning steam locomotives. But the locomotive boiler cannot get hot enough with wood ... the boiler needs coal to produce enough BTUs to boil water fast enough to rotate the turbine and turn the wheels.

Maybe your wood stove output should be measured.
Don't forget a huge percentage of fire heat goes straight up flueway.

Wood burning heater when putting wood into stove lots of smoke comes into the house when door is opened.


It ain't drafting right or you have the damper closed. Look for obstructions in the smoke stack.
Wood burning tips
  • Burn only wood. No garbage, plastics, rubber, paint or oil, briquettes, paper, etc. Burning these items releases harmful chemicals into the air.
  • Burn Wise Program from EPA: Emphasizes the importance of burning the right wood.
  • Build small, hot fires instead of large, smoldering ones.
  • Don't "bed the fire down" for the night. Holding a fire overnight is a fire hazard and can create serious indoor and outdoor air pollution problems.
  • Open your damper if the smoke is dark. Dark smoke indicates more pollution is being produced and fuel is being wasted.
  • Keep your stove clean and well-maintained. Follow manufacturer guidelines; replace catalytic stove filters every 1-4 years. Have your chimney checked and cleaned at least once a year.
Use seasoned wood The best fuel for woodstoves is dry, "seasoned" wood. Seasoned wood has a moisture content of about 20% or less. It tends to be dark in color, cracked on the ends, light in weight and has bark that is easily broken or peeled. Here are some tips for preparing seasoned wood:
  • Split the wood to help it dry. Wood will dry out more quickly and burn best if the wood is cut to about 3 1/2 inches to 6 inches in diameter.
  • Cover the split firewood to protect it from the weather and stack it loosely in alternating layers, at least 6 inches off the ground.
  • Time must be given to allow the wood to reach 20% or less moisture required for seasoned wood. This process takes approximately 6-12 months. Think ahead and buy next winter's wood well in advance.
It is recommended an annual chimney cleaning to remove creosote build up and to identify potential problems. Things to consider:
  • The Chimney cap may be plugged by debris.
  • Catalytic combustor and baffles are exposed to very high heat and deteriorate as used. Replace every 1-4 years depending on use.
  • Stovepipe angles and bolts are subject to corrosion.
  • Gaskets on airtight stove doors need replacement every few years. Gaskets and seals are used by the appliance designer to control the location and flow of air into the appliance.
  • Check seams on stoves sealed with furnace cement. Seams may leak and cause you to loose valuable heat and reduce the efficiency of the unit.
  • Replace broken or missing firebricks.
  • Keep the floor of your stove clean of debris and ash.
