Did this video help you?

GmenAgain: Good video, but I have some input. As a 26 year owner of a printing business, and a wood stove owner....I can say you should NEVER burn colored paper. Some people believe that's an old theory, and newspapers/flyers are made different now because of soy based inks. The key word being "based". Yes, they are soy based...but the pigments used for colors are toxic REGARDLESS OF BASE. Also paper used for color printing contains gloss...even if it does not look or feel glossy. So you are burning 2 toxic chemicals. And both will also stick to the chimney walls. The black inks used for printing do not contain toxic pigments, and do not require additives to make them appear opaque. Burn only the white & black portions of your newspaper...and put all others in recycling....NOT the garbage. And cardboard is made with glue...don't burn it. Also...adding a metal grate will allow you to avoid a "building" process every time you start your stove, and increase airflow to your wood for more efficient burning.

goldsackb2: Great video. How many logs do you add to the furnace before you go to sleep? I am installing a wood stove in my house soon. I am trying to avoid waking up to a cold house at night.

barewolf: Joe Bucci mentioned that your stove looks like an Englander NC-30. Is it? Great vid.

Terri Brinkley: What a GREAT demo! I have an older model earth stove that came with the house I bought (a 1977 model). I could never seem to understand how the damper works. The damper has 2 different settings & there is also an air-flow control knob on the side for "H-M-L" Your demo helped me understand mine MUCH better! THANK YOU!! Perhaps I will not go thru so much wood now!!

grimreap93: 10 second intro or less. Nothing more.

Susan Kanawyer: Hello... Thank you so very much for your wonderful awesome tips... I did build my fire as you instructed tonight !! Wow What an Amazing Difference.. My little mountain cabin warmed up so fast,, with minimal wasting of my personalty hand cut wood.. Thank You so very much,, Awesome video.. 

katwillny: I cant seem to do that on a cold start without getting a house full of smoke. I have a 18ft class A chimney outside the house and 4 feet inside on a 90 degree angle going into the wall thimbal. Any ideas?

Joe Bucci: It looks like a Englander NC-30 Stove, Excellent choice. I have mine for 2 years and it works 3x better then my older Brass Flame. I use Bull pine to start my fires and switch to Live oak and Almond. If you don't have access to hard wood, pine will be fine. After the inside of the glass is hot, I use a paint scraper that uses razor blades to remove the build up of smoke on the inside of the glass. After the fire box is hot, I always load the wood cross length and to the back of the stove. I hope this will help and thank you for the video. Merry Christmas Joe Bucci

bowtech340: Awsome vid... Thanks...

Ronny op de Beeck: Opening with guns..... And after all..... God bless..... With guns..... Is that what god says? Shooting???? Strange.... 

Laurie Wheeler: Just read responses and saw on to my night time question, lol.

katwillny: Thanks for the video. Creepy laughter at 4:41.

charlie brown: i first put in a bunch of dryed kndling i per fer hard woods like cheery oak locus etc than let it burn flu wide open let it burn for 5to 10 minutes than add logs than turn down the air in take flue so it does not over fire your stove turn down to half or more

FletchBZMMT: Yes, it does.

TheSkyhazFallen: When you load it up with big logs does the fire roar up the flue? I'm a new woodstove owner and I'm uncertain of how fierce rhe fire should burn.

FletchBZMMT: @pfiberoptik You are exactly right, thanks for pointing this out.

FletchBZMMT: You are welcome, and thank you.

charlie brown: i fill mine up with kndling let it burn for 10 minutes than i completly fill it up with big logs hard woods only

FletchBZMMT: That will depend on what you are burning and how hot the stove is burning. At night we can load up our stove burning as low as possible and by morning there are still lot coals in it to put more wood in etc... Out here in MT we burn pine which burns faster etc... Hope that helps.

FletchBZMMT: You are most welcome, glad I could help.

geo76og: What make of stove is that....I ask cause I just got a used England stove works that looks like that and have a ? for you. Do you have fire bricks at the top of stove at all, When I look at mine it just looks to me that it needs fire bricks to go in the top side of stove.

FletchBZMMT: @SCRWOOD Why thank you. Thanks for watching and commenting.

Laurie Wheeler: Question, moving to small cabin next week and wondering how often do you need to keep adding wood? Is it every 3-4 hours because i'm sleeping in loft and will need to come down to add wood during middle of night i'm guessing or is it depending on type of wood your burning? Also do you clean out stove daily? Thanks great video!

FletchBZMMT: Thanks glad you enjoyed it.

FletchBZMMT: @Ziva4Freedom Great question Ziva. The stove was here when we moved in. It will heat the whole house very well as it's in the basement. With the luxury of one fan in the basement and ceiling fan upstairs we hardly ever use any other heat. In SHTF/WROL some of the outer rooms house would of course be cooler etc, but still livable. Installation would depend greatly on how far the flu would have to run etc. Now is a great time to buy a stove though. Gov. tax incentives etc...

G36Jeff: Ooo.i miss our fireplace soo much.i miss cutting wood with my dad out back and just sitting by the fire.the end of this vid brought a tear to my eye.

FletchBZMMT: Also it should be noted that caution should be taken not to over fire the stove as it can warp the door, damage the air intake system etc... The happens when one lets the stove burn too hot for too long. A half hour to an hour when starting the stuff is fine though.

Laura Rosson: thank you:-) I used your method today and had great success! I live in Pollock pines Ca, close to Lake Tahoe California and am new to my snow country area. My home doesn't have central heat and air so I am going to rely on my wood stove for heat.

FletchBZMMT: Glad I could help, in a round-about-way.... ;-)

jane doe: question is, DOES IT HEAT THE HOUSE??

pfiberoptik: One more thing fletch, I do the same as you with the door latch when getting the stove up to temp. Leaving the door cracked, but the latch still engaged is a good practice. Without engaging the latch one huge backpuff (when built-up wood gasses suddenly ignite) could literally blow the door wide open with embers everywhere. A backpuff could still shoot embers through the cracked but latched door, so I never leave the room until the door is closed and latched fully. Just an FYI for others...

Matthew Medeiros: Yeah here is a lot of Oak, i have been doing my reading up on it. Don't want to pay oil prices. Thanks for the help

FletchBZMMT: Not sure on make, it was in the house. Think it's a "generic" of some kind. It doesn't have fire bricks up top either. Hope that helps.

Matthew Medeiros: Flech thank you for the video, getting a house with a wood burning stove installed in it already here in RI, one question, how offen do you put wood in it?

pfiberoptik: Funny...watching Fletch's stove burn for 10 minutes was actually less sleep provoking than many of nutnfancy's long videos. HAHAHA! I got our stove installed just in time for the winter temps. it heats great and I love it. Actually the last 2 days I have been cutting & hauling FREE hardwood from my neighbors' property. They all got together and paid a pro to cut a bunch of trees down (and NONE of them heat with wood) I now have a friggin HUGE pile of wood enuff for at least 3 or 4 winters.

sonia53028: Thank you for your video. It really worked for me on the first try!! Awsome!

FletchBZMMT: @MrSchpankme Indeed combustion air is important. Ideally it would be ducted directly into the stove etc... Thanks for commenting.
