Well this morning was a close call. I am pretty sure we almost had a chimney fire on our hands. In normal cool weather we let the wood stove die out overnight and in the morning start a new one. There are usually only a few coals left.
The last couple nights its been cold, -19C to -21 C (-2 to -6 F). So I’ve been getting up at 3-4 am and loading the stove again. As per usual, last night I loaded the stove at 11pm and went to bed. I got up at 3:30 am…
Our Harman Fireplace Wood Stove goes BOOM!
Our fireplace was WETT Certified installed. Everything done right and approved by the insurance company. The unit has its own air intake and a chimney that goes straight up. The problem is that the after gases do not burn off properly as this little video shows. We have had the stove for 6 years now, its always done this. [Edit note Sep 05 2013: To clarify, not every time but its gotten worse the last couple years.]
