Replacing The Gasket On Your Wood Burning Stove

One of the most important features, if not the most important feature, of modern wood burning stoves is their ability to be airtight, to be able strictly to control the intake of air into their combustion chambers. Older stoves, such as the beloved potbelly and Franklin stoves, were notoriously loosely fitted, making it impossible to allow only very little air into the stove.

At first blush it may sound just fine to have a stove that lets a lot of air in and cannot be set to strictly limit air intake. After all, fires need oxygen in air in order to burn fuel (such as firewood) and more air means more fire and, thus, more heat and light. And more is better, right? Actually, no.

Wood Burning Stove Heating Area (Square Feet)


Join our large (and growing) community of food-lovers on Facebook. We are regularly inspired by members of this positive community. Come be inspired too.

When shopping for a wood stove, one of the first things you will need to decide is how large of a wood stove to buy. More specifically, you need to choose a wood stove that will heat comfortably your whole home or the part of your home that you want to heat. All wood stoves come with a British thermal unit (BTU) output capacity and estimated square foot coverage, but there are many factors that impact the area you can actually heat well with a wood stove.

The first consideration is the area you intend to heat. Do you want to heat your entire home or just part of it? Is the stove going to be your sole source of heating or, as in my father-in-law’s house, is it just an aesthetically pleasing additional heat source?
