There are many flats in which stoves cannot be used because the draught is insufficient.
Many people opt not to use their wood-burning stoves or fireplaces because downdraught in their chimneys results in foul-smelling smoke entering the room during lighting and refueling.
Problems related to insufficient chimney draught can be avoided with an exodraft chimney fan solution.
exodraft chimney fan solutions for venting of multiple fireplaces consist of a chimney fan, an EBC20 constant pressure control and accessories.
If the pressure in the chimney changes, for instance because…
- The temperature in the chimney increases or decreases
- The stove door or air vent is opened/closed
- There is a change in wind and weather conditions
…the control regulates the speed of the chimney fan so that optimum chimney draught is maintained.
The negative pressure produced in the chimney ensures that no smoke or foul odours leak into other apartments if one or more stoves are lit.
This prevents problems related to smoke smell and soot accumulation in the apartments, meaning the stoves can be used at any time.
