a friend has told me that a wood/coal burner
sucks air into it and up the chimney,
air comes under doors, through windows and floor boards,
he says the answer is to have a separate air supply,
perhaps coming from an airbrick in the wall
through a plastic drain pipe under the floorboards
to very near the air inlet of the burner,
with a closable grill for when the burner's not burning.
Of course , its obvious once he said it.
So what kind of an openable grill?
or could i feed an airpipe directly into the burner?
the burner in this room is a Rayburn number one,
with an air inlet at the front under it...
(with wooly hat on, cant find my long johns...)
