Posted By: SeretI would imagine 1 or 2 houses worth of air would be plenty to keep a fire burning.
Posted By: SeretAre you using any kind of mechanical ventilation?
Posted By: SeretEven if you're not required to have a permanent hole in the wall for your fire you could install one that shuts. It'd be a cold bridge but if it's supplying the fire you'd still end up ahead energy wise.
Posted By: an02ewNot sure i could spend all the time and effort to seal tiny pin holes and cracks only to create a large vent, even if it could be closed off.
Posted By: an02ewNo CPB youve missed the point,

Posted By: finnyPosted By: fostertomThe suction created by buoyancy of hot gas in a flue is a weak force, so the whole flow path, from outside air into the room into the stove and up, must be of comparable or lower resistanceSorry Tom, but that is not the basic principle on which flues work.

Minimum draw of a flue for a solid fuel appliance is 12 pascals. Unlit. Heat can make it draw more, but heat cannot be relied upon to create draw.
