Quadrafire Sapphire Gas Stove
Last year I replaced my furnace with a Quadrafire Sapphire gas stove that looks like a woodstove, but isn't. When they installed it, they claimed . . .they had adjusted it properly, that the logs provided HAD to go in exactly the spaces provided with no additional logs to be added, and so on.
Well, I found that they didn't adjust it at all. This year before starting it up, I pulled a few things and had the installation book in one hand. . .the flue was wide open, which it shouldn't be, I wouldn't think if I want the heat to stay here. . . And the damper, was closed completely.
So upon reading the installation instructions, it tells you how to adjust both of these for flame color and size, but it tells me nothing of the heat. Is bluer and smaller hotter or cooler than longer and oranger?? Anyone know?
Also, just cuz I don't obey well, I have purchased some extra ceramic logs and attempted to improve the sparse look. I have been careful not to block any burner opening, though a few pieces are up in the way of these two huge center flames to disperse them a bit and make it look nicer.
They have been in since yesterday, and so far the only difference I notice is that the stove cools more slowly when it is turned off. Anyone have any reasons I may not be considering related to adding these extra logs?
