I recently moved into a house that has a working wood burner/multi fuel. It's the first time I've had a wood burner/stove/multi fuel and I'm unsure how to use it efficiently.
It's unlike conventional stoves that I see (it's all metal with no glass doors). The heat output has so far been uninspiring and I was hoping it would be better.
So far we've been burning coal and some wood.
I'm looking for some pointers on how to maximise the heat output; should I run it with the doors open or shut? I have 2 vents on the bottom of the doors and something on the flue that turns (which I imagine shuts off the flue/chimney), do I run the top flue/vent wide open?
Any advice will be much appreciated.
