Regency 13100L Insert Draft Control
I recently had a 13100 insert installed. It seems to be working fine so far. I have one question though. The instructions say to not run the fan unless the draft control rod is pulled out at least 1/2 inch. I assume this is to keep the chimney hotter to cut down on cresote. I see little difference in the fire whether I keep the draft open 1/2 inch or closed all the way. Has anyone run one of these inserts with the draft closed and the fan on for a year or so? If you have, how has the cresote buildup in the chimnet liner been?
