So ... is your woodstove only used for times when you require extra heat in your house? What model stove did you get? Do you notice any interior soot when using it, or not?

We heat the house with the woodstove, and it is out primary heat when it’s really cold. In mild weather we use the heat pump, because the stove can overheat the house. We bought a Quadra-Fire 3100 “step top” that is EPA certified, produces less particulates than other stoves do and is around 78% efficient. No, no soot in the house, nor should there be if it is installed correctly. There is always a little ash residue but nothing uncontrollable.
