virtually complete combustion with wood these

do it." Mr. Senf, are you basically referring to Washington State certified stoves? Among those are there any you feel confident deliver about 80% of the wood's heat content to the room in which they are located?

And a related question: Suppose one omits the stove pipe and connects chimney pipe directly to the stove. What percentage of the wood's heat content would then be lost to the chimney?
