Woodstove Operation question
We just finished our new home, and now have started heating w/ a wood stove. It is a Hearthstone Tribute. I have never ran a woodstove before - so I want to make sure I am running this correctly.
When I installed the stove - I also installed a temp gauge. So far I have been keeping the stove running so that the temp stays in the orange - which says normal operation. However - for me to keep the stove at this temp - I have to keep the air lever all the way open. Is this normal? I thought I would have to adjust the air lever to keep the fire burning correctly - but so far I keep it wide open.
I thought maybe this has to do with the house being super insulated?
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
