Posted By: djhit seems it may be well worth packing the fireplaces with insulation to isolate the stoves from the room. Does that sound sensible, totally lunatic or just overkill?
Posted By: jms452If the stoves run on house air and can can be nominally closed off this is at least overkill (I assume your rented house doesn't have MVHR so you need some natural ventillation anyway).
If you forget to take out the insulation when you leave it is also potentially dangerous.
These are passive house details, exaccerbated by unbaffled direct air stoves, that frankly in any rented house I have ever been in are in the noise.
Posted By: Viking HouseAre the baffels at roof level and are they able to stop convection currents rising and falling within in the chimney when the stove isn't lighting? i.e cold dense air dropping down the chimney onto the stove and light warm air rising up from the stove cooling it down.
