I ran into an interesting situation. My landlord heats with wood. Not unusual but the woodstove does not get hot! It does get warm but barely heats the house. The stove looks okay as far as seals and everything goes. I replaced the damper in the stove pipe. The stove is made for an 8" pipe but is necked down to 6" just above the stove. Wood burned is typical birch and spruce.
I'm no expert on anything but have never encountered a woodstove that wood be so cool with a good fire going.
Manufacture is unknown but looks very typical. I offered to install a barrel stove I'm not using and block around it but the idea was shot down.
Anyhow if anybody could tell me why a stove like this would burn so cool when everything (cept the downsized stovepipe) is in order?
Inquiring minds want to know!
