heater in my perm

Recommended Posts

hello everyone i was out fishing in my perm tonight and even with the heat way up it was cold in there and i cant figure out y i have one of those smaller nu way propane stoves and used it to heat my 6x8 last year and it was plenty warm on medium and now i added 2 feet to my permanent so its 6x10 but have also put on new paneling new paint and a new rubber roof and i cant figure out where the heats escaping i was thinking out of my stove pipe out the roof because last year we had the pipe run to the cealing the another section connected and went outside this year theres a roof thru pipe where our stove pipe runs right through the roof piece and theres about a 1/2 inch on each side of my stove pipe so im thinking its coming out of there any ideas???

Sounds weird, but if you put a smoke bomb in it you could watch where the smoke comes out and that would tell you where the leaks are.

ya somethings definetly wrong i can grab my stove pipe and move it around so i think the warm air is getting out of that roof through pipe since warm air rises

I would add a damper to the stove pipe if you haven't got one, it will help you adjust your heat loss.


I agree.
