Also.....and maybe all new stoves are this way?..... you can not turn it down. You put wood in, you get heat out. I'd like it better if it had a thermostatic air intake, but it's a cheapish, funky manual damper.
ended up buying a 1 yr. old Englander 30-NC +blower for $500. Now that Ive figured out how to run it I like it. Hooked to heat reclaimer thing on the stack. Pulls quite a bit of extra heat that was headed for the chimney. Basement has been toasty even in teens.
