I don't have any way to increase the combustion air on the Leisure Line Hearth model. It runs wide open all the time.
I wondered if it's mainly due to the stove idling so much. We're coming into colder weather and I'll take note of the ash when the stove is running harder to see if there is a difference. I'll probably get a few bags of coal from a few different sources as well to see how they burn.
