I wonder if someone can give me some advise here.
We have a solid fuel stove which works fine in calm weather but when its windy the fire can be blown out or smoke comes into the room when we open the door. Obviously we really need to use the stove when its cold and windy!
Part of our problem seems to be that the flue is a bit short on the outside wall as its the back wall of an extension and only 8 feet high. The flue goes up about
another 4 feet but its still below the ridge of the house.
Had a look on the web and maybe some sort of a cowl could solve this but I also see that this does not work in all cases.
Also, anyone know anyone in Wicklow who could come out and sort this for us?!
