So this stove has lots of air holes in the door and ash door as the other reviewers mentioned. The older models do not and worked excellant. Without a DIY modification of this new design the stove burns way too hot and does not hold a fire very long.
Here is what i did..... Ash door - I plugged all but one hole with a bolt, nut and washers. i left one hole open (the elongated hole also remains open) I stick a loose bolt in or take out depending on the wood etc.. The main door, again i plugged all but one hole same way. I never have to plug the remaining open hole.
So with this modification and installing the included inline stove pipe damper I can maintain a fire for 10-12 hours easy and heat (very hot 80 degrees+) an old 1800 sqft house all winter unless it drops below -15 outside.
Just wanted to put this review out there as i saw the negative ones. With the modification you can control your burn rate easily and it also burns cleanly.. very little creosote in my double wall chimney.
One word of advice - start a fire (or two) in the stove outside of your house in the stove prior to installation. You'll thank me when you see all the smoke and stink coming of the unit.
I am no expert this is just what i did to get the stove to preform how i wanted it to.
I called the US Stove Company and they told me that the EPA made them change the design so wood would burn faster and supposedly 'cleaner'. Reminds me of the foolish low-flow toilets you need to flush 2 times. We trade a small amount of 'dirtier' smoke for lots of 'cleaner' smoke. This fast burning modification will chew through my wood supplies MUCH faster which means next year I'll need to run my 2 stroke chain saw much longer and I'll have to drop many more trees. Makes perfect sense doesn't it?
I'm not knocking the US Stove Company or this product but buyers should know a small investment in some heat tape to close those holes could save them multiple cords of wood each year. I'll report back once my 'modified' version is installed.
This stove came with the house when I bought it. So, I won't feel bad about sending it to the scrap yard in the spring.
