But it is pretty cool to get your domestic hot water off it though...
Dual fuel is gone.... Against code

We just moved into our place in May and we've only had this little thing going a few times.



I don't think its a great stove. I've had it chock full and it barely heats up the down stairs.

The house also came with this combo. We fired it up when we first moved in but had to shut it down after fire started raining down on our deck. I cleaned the chimney after that but I haven't started it since. I've been trying to get wood delivered since May with no luck.

The problem with some of those dual fuel furnaces is that the chimney gets creosoted when the damper on the wood fire closes to maintain the temperature set at your wall thermostat. Keep the chimney hot by either burning hot fires for short periods or smaller long term fires with the thermostat set at a higher value. Chimney fires are not fun. If you had one inspect the flue for signs of damage.

Exactly..... Solid fuel and liquid fuel cant vent in the same flue in our code jurisdiction .....as I recall. Gas is for sure a no no.
Most do the wood side as an add on.

My combination furnace is wood - electric so the chimney is only required for wood smoke. I heat mostly with wood and in 26 years have only had to replace the fan motor. My wood warms me many times though.

we run a contemporary Jøtul F 273 stove - love the contemporary look - it takes 18" logs diagonally - we get thru about 2.5 cord (4ftx4ftx8ft stack) a winter to heat a 4 bedroom house.
http://www.woodburningstovesco.co.uk...l65h6&model=25

I fancy heaping large pebbles round it to get thermal mass - but the wife won't let me. I reckon the pebbles could be stacked and taken down in the summer - not need for a permanent fit.

I sell firewood wood as a side line.
Current prices are £50 a cubic metre bulk bag - its probably about 3 cu.m. per cord.

I honestly thought you guys mostly burned coal....

It's not like Lebanon-- they do actually have some trees there.

At least I saw some on Top Gear.

I know they have some trees, but everyone makes the UK out to be the ultra Nanny State that regulates the shit out of everything...So I naturally thought if they are hard to burn in California they must be just about illegal to burn in the UK...
