Lighting a wood burning stove can be problematic if your flue doesn’t draw up air as it should. This can be due to various reasons including downdraught, cold air building up in the flue, or a poorly insulated and therefore cold flue itself.
Installing a Windkat cowl can dramatically improve the ease with which stoves and fireplace fires can be started. That is because Windkat not only stops downdraught, but uniquely acts as a gentle passive ventilation system too, drawing air steadily up the flue even when your fire is not alight. The existing draw makes lighting your fire much easier as well as burn more efficiently.
