Why do you need to keep the fire going on mild days?
We also have a 34kW wood burner, powering 13 radiators and have no problem letting it go out on mild days, or even mild nights of which last night was a case in point. That could be down to insulation I suppose, which is by far the cheapest method of ensuring warmth in winter and coolness in summer.
Also, picking up on a point that MW mad re smoke from the fire into the house. If you have that situation your installation is wrong. Sack your heating engineer and either get someone who knows what they're talking about or try doing a bit of research on Google regarding chimneys and stack effect. It's not rocket science.
By the way I have been researching using search engines since well before google or any other of the mainstream searech engines existed
The query still stands.
what is it you want to know?
