heat from the wood gives off a lot of residue on the windows, curtains and walls. Hate to think what we are
breathing. Does anyone have a solution to stop the black film going on everything? Is there some kind of
insert we could put in the floor vents for the film without blocking the heat into the room?
sounds like inefficient chimney draft on the wood stove allowing for smoke to get into the room. How long has it been since you cleaned the chimney?
