Av8r. no. that would be a high pressure area of clean air before it is pushed through the coal. I don't know where you would measure the pressure in the stove.
Hmmm..mine is not in the airstream for the combustion air, it's just a hole into the firebox, below the grate..at least on my stove.
nope...I'm wrong...it looks like it is in the combusiton airstream...thanks for the info!
