Does anyone who has asthma use a wood stove for heating? If so, does it aggravate the condition? Our little guy has asthma but was diagnosed with it after we removed the woodstove, so I'm not sure if it aggravated his condition as we were unaware of it or he developed it later on. I do remember that anytime we added wood, the smoke would belch into the living room. And also, when my sister heated with a wood stove, they all smelled like they'd been camping at christmas time. So her's belched enough smoke into the living space to saturate their clothing, hair, etc. with the aroma. This isn't unpleasant to me at all, but I'm concerned for ds if we reinstall it this winter. I'm having second thoughts about it.
