Posted By: Viking HouseHow do you stop the stove from being a cold radiator in the morning because cold air drops down the chimney at night?The room with the stove is always the coldest room in the house when the stove isn't lighting.People don't close chimney-roof valves before they go to bed because the stove is still smoking, and they don't set their alarm for 2 0'Clock to get up to close the valve either.I was in a Passive House at 9 0'Clock one cold morning, the room with the sealed stove was 15 degrees while the rest of the house was 20 degrees, the stove was 8 degrees and acted as a cold radiator.

Posted By: finnyI think in your circumstances I would be tempted to install 5Kw or under, then test. If you were happy to have a vent with direct air feed, I would install it. Ultimately, it will be up to your installer or Building control officer, they will have to be satisfied that your installation is compliant. Speak to them first.
Posted By: an02ew As our only space heating for the entire home, i would think in the coldest months that it would be lit most of the time and with little effort and good quility logs i should be able to keep it alite through the night, as with the existing old broken fire she just requires a bit of tenderness in the morning and she's away, also the more modern fires are usually so full of cast iron or ceramic that they hold heat for hours even if the do go out in the middle of the night.
Posted By: finny What about a thermal mass stove of some type. Fast, clean burn, then shut down baffles keeping the heat in?
