So far so good , I suggest waiting a lil while on purchase of manometer ( or at least using it for now) you have enough to learn about without worrying about limiting draft at the barometer, I personally did not install a baro until my second season! Learn how to burn coal first! Than learn how to burn coal as efficiently as your appliance will allow! The only things you need to burn coal are ( coal , coal burning appliance vented outside co detector near stove ( bucket of dry sand to snuff fire in event of emergency) some wood to start coal if wood smoke goes up chimney your good to go!
