Wood stove questions please read!
We just bought a non cat Vermont Castings Encore model wood stove. Its EVERBURN system is supposed to be superior and they claim an air wash system keeps the glass clean. We used it the first day and the glass doors were black. Am I doing something wrong? To make the everburn system work the damper door must be shut and a side valve can be opened various degrees to allow air into the stove from the home. The only time the damper is open is when you are starting the fire or adding wood. We are burning well seasoned wood so green wood is not the problem for the smokey doors. Also there is a faint smell of smoke every so often so I am wondering if I have a venting issue too. Someone please help!
