Wood Stove Thermometer Types, Over Fire Alarm – Flue Guru Victoria BC


So, I’m burning at about half air now, and got a nice fire there. It’s a little bit fast for conserving wood, but it shows about two hundred here. The flue gas temperature dropped quite a bit, and quite quickly, as soon as I shut the air down. But this temperature, which is more constant because it’s on the cast iron on the stove, or the heavy iron on the stove, stays more constant. It doesn’t pop up and down as much as that one. That one dropped thirty degrees. This one actually increased a bit, and when I shut the air down so that means the stove is heating better, and I guess the flue gas is less because the stove’s already hot. That’s my take on it anyway. Now, this is important to have something like this though, on an insert, because you don’t know when you’re over firing, and you can over fire a lot quicker than than this will show. This goes up, the over firing is at 475 here, and on this one, has an automatic alarm at 480. It’ll start buzzing and let you know to shut your air down. It’s not good to over fire when you have just that thin liner in there, which is quite susceptible to burning, even though it’s tested at a 700 degree fire, three of them in a row, it can still damage the liner when you over fire. So, it’s good to keep it at under 480, or under, here it says under 475, and it says you’re wasting fuel after that. Under this 120, or under this 230, it’s creosote producing.
