question about my wood burning stove
we just bought a farm house with a wood burning stove. It is very large stove, not sure of the brand but looks fairly new. When we go to bed at night or go to work during the day, we are losing alot of heat. After starting fire and having it burn for 30 minutes or so, should i close the damper or dontinue to leave it open? It does not have a middle ground. Also, i am not sure if it has a catalytic converter as everyone mentions that. Any advise to get maximum heat while we sleep or at work is helpful.
