Comments: I fill the stove every 18-24 hours, depending on wood type and outside weather conditions. I researched and purchased this stove specifically for this reason, as I am away from home for a minimum of 11 hours each day at work. I have gone 36 hours without loading and staying in the "cat is active" temp, so the manufacturer's 40 hour claim is accurate. Heat output is SO controllable with the bi-metal stat setting: Want heat now? Turn stat up and you'll get it. Don't want to overheat the stove room & house? Turn stat down and you won't. Some say it's not attractive, but form follows superb function with this machine. I haven't run the furnace once since I installed it, even when some nights were in the mid -30s F range. This stove is uncompromising and delivers exactly as advertised. Highly recommended.
