In regards to needing more wood you can also tell when the stove is too hot.


I love the smell of burning spruce-- I love the sound of the spring time goose--I love the feel of 40 below--from my Trapline I will never go.

I have an old fan before the safety grate

a ceiling fan is ideal moves the air in the whole room and you might already have one


I am getting around to getting a ceiling fan in the living room where the stove is

If I got a ceiling fan in here I would get a haircut each time I came in.


9 foot ceilings without a fan to move some air I can have it hot against the ceiling and cold on the floor , the living room is over a crawl space that is not insulated.

it's a good house for me , I have been in 7 or 7'6" houses and I go to put a shirt on and drag my knuckles on the ceiling

I think the fan is the best option for your money. We have one, moves some air and easy to tell from afar how stove is doing. Would skip the magic heater flue thing. Looks like a creosote magnet.

Iím sure you donít want to go out and buy another stove...but I have to say we have an Englander ďadd on furnaceĒ. Itís meant to tie into hvac ducting next to your forced air furnace. We donít have it hooked into hvac as we have a boiler and radiators. Instead itís in the living room and ducted to the second floor with a vent into the living room. It heats up and a thermostat kicks on an 850cfm fan. Fills the cabin with hot air in a hurry.
I will add that while I have a flu damper I donít use it. The stove has a damper on the front that controls the air quite well...I get nice secondary burn.
We use a toyo stove during the day when we are at work. It keeps the place at about 50 when itís -30 outside. Get home fire up the stove, get a bed of coals going and load it with 20Ē firewood. Two loads gets it to about 85 in the living room and keeps the cabin warm all night. We burn on average 5 cord a year.

I grew up with an Earth Stove that had a fan and it kept the whole house nice and warm

Leftlane we have one of those out in a pole building. Neat little unit, it has an oil line inlet on it to be used as a non electric drip stove. Never used it like that but Iím curious to try.
Iím amazed that with no insulation it will heat up that pole building.

My neighbor had a thing like that magic heater flue gizmo. It was a creosote magnet. Pain in the neck to clean it and the flue pipe as well. He got rid of it and went back to a normal flue pipe.

A little bit of air movement moves a lot of heat. It helps if your house is set up so the heat can move in a somewhat circular motion from room through room.

My first experience with a wood stove was a small Earth Stove I installed in our first house. That was one terrific little stove. The combustion air came in from the rear and was controlled by a thermostat on the stove. It did a great job of controlling the heat output. The only issue was if you opened the stove door too quickly the inrush of air could produce a fireball right up in your face. I "trimmed" my mustache and eyebrows a few of times checking that stove in the middle of the night when not fully awake.

I put a 2x3 foot filter in the ceiling above mine and then ran a squirrel cage fan to pull the heat from the ceiling and push it into the plenum on my furnace. That fan is run with the cooling side of a thermostat. If the room gets above 72 degrees the fan kicks on and pushes heat through the existing ductwork. Cost me about 50$ for materials. Hands down the best way to distribute heat from a internal wood burner.
