I've been reading the Mag stoker posts and other articles online about Barometric damper's. I think I'm going to install one this weekend and see what happens. Right now I'm straight black stove pipe into my 35' (or so) terra cotta chimney. Technically I guess it should increase the efficiency of my stove. I have a VERY good draft so I think this should help cool the temp and increase heat. Right??

Is that the whole basis of having one.. 55-60 degrees today in Binghamton NY. WOW is it warm.. Suppose to cool this weekend.

The idea of the barometric damnper is to open and take room air into the flue in cases of over drafts..Like on windy days when u could get a really good draft going
