In another thread, I was told flatly that the baro would not work if sucking outside air, because it depends on being at the same air pressure as the stove itself. I haven't quite accepted that in my own mind -- I need someone to draw me a picture! However, think of a strong wind blowing against the side of your house where the baro intake is located. The air pressure will be significantly higher there, forcing air into the chimney system and consequently pressurizing the inside of your stove. Or a wind blowing past the baro intake, creating a suction and reducing the chimney draft. Seems like either sort of wind would be a problem. Only on a still day, when inside/outside pressure would be the same, it might work.
