by some feat of engineering or magic MY stove alters the amount of air it pulls into the secondary tract according to the amount of over fire draft present. more when draft is low, less when draft is high, no explanation, just happy, steady, even, economical heat.
hate to dredge this all back up but i just ran across an interesting post by Sunny Boy in user Lightning's thread about secondary air in his furnace.http://nepacrossroads.com/posting.php?m ... 5&p=383756
i hope that works, seemed to me to explain how and why my secondary air system appears to be fully self regulating.
