hearthstone clydesdale insert wood stove
Hearthstone Cyldesdale insert.
This stove has the large glass door, 12 x 22.
Purchased the stove in 2012.
The glass loads up with smoke particles everyday. We were told it is crosote on the doors but We do not burn wet wood. We think the air vent is too small to clear the window. The smoke builds up in the door corners and along the sides, not down the middle because the air vent is located on the center line of the stove below the door.
When the air vent is closed it seems to let too much air in because the fire burns a little too fast which makes it impossible to hold the fire overnight.
We have been wood and coal burners since the 1970's, this is our first insert.
