When replacing an old stove with A new one, you can often face that is not enough draught in the chimney.
It means that smoke, soot and unpleasant odors end up in the living room great inconvenience to you.
Poor draft can be partly due to the chimney being too low or high, but it is also the result of the new, energy-optimized stoves that close less heat out into the chimney. Draught develops as a result of the difference between the heat in the chimney and the cold outside, and if this difference is too small, nothing arises drag, causing problems.
At the same time, our homes have become better insulated, more energy efficient and, alternatively, ventilated. All these factors can contribute for insufficient natural chimney draft
Make the most of your old stove with an exodraft Smoke extractor / chimney fan
Many believe they have to do something wrong when they light up. While problems with ignition may be wrong or bad fuel is due to insufficient chimney draft.
If you have problems with the ignition due of an insufficient draft in the chimney can be there. There are several reasons for this.
The most common causes are:
The chimney is too short, too long or in other ways incorrectly dimensioned
Wind chimes in the chimney
Insufficient temperature difference between flue gas and the cold air outside
Large trees or buildings close to the top of the chimney
The house and the chimney are in a valley
An exodraft smoke extractor system consists of a Smoke extractor / chimney fan that is connected to manual or
semi-automatic regulation, so the chimney draft can be adapted as required. The chimney fan is easily installed on top of the chimney and can tolerate constant temperatures up to 250ºC
It’s fast and easy to turn on
With an exodraft chimney fan system, you always control the chimney draft regardless of weather conditions and other influences.
Because the fire gets much faster, fewer particles disappear in the atmosphere, which is an advantage for both people and the environment. Benefits of installing an exodraft chimney fan:
Better combustion and fuel economy
Healthier indoor climate
Fast and easy ignition
No smoke or smell
Prevents condensation in the chimney
Removes the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning
Reduces the risk of chimney fire significantly
The chimney fan removes 80% of the smoke particles
A study from 2014 made by an official Danish institute
shows that a Smoke extractor / chimney fan removes 80% of the smoke particles that would otherwise end inside. The result is a cleaner and healthier indoor climate.
