Can I run my stove with the doors open?

In most cases the answer is yes, but the success of this depends on the capability of the chimney to clear the smoke and fumes associated with wood and solid fuel. Sparks and ash can fall from the stove so spark guards are a good idea and can be purchased with most brands of stoves. It should be remembered that the efficiency of the stove will suffer when run with the doors open.
