Maybe even a propane heater for the room that she is mostly in is not a bad idea at all.
I'm not up on the gas fireplaces as to how well they can...
Pellets stoves need more maintenance and repairing then a wood-stove does is my thought. still I think the bags of pellets might be easier to deal...
I agree with what you said 100% except for the bold.
Burning lower and longer can save wood because you're not heating your house up over and beyond...
Looks like a stress crack. Your theory maybe true but I would not worry much about it. Though that may just be me.
Dang things are prolly to dry..need to soak them in water to get the M.C. up some.
Fired up tonight for the first time this season.
44 out and was down to 66 in the house. Supposed to be kinda cold all weekend and longer I guess...
I meant to say the cat stalling . I second the thought on the steel cat also.
On any BK that I have looked over there is a idle hole to supply intake air when the t-stat is closed all the way. I would think the Ashford has the...
Nice ..if it gets much cooler around here i may have to fire up in,and it's August for crying out loud! down in the 50's tonight i think they said!
Zombies are around!
I pay high taxes in ny for those season changes! lol
I would not live in Florida no stinking way!
i don't even like visiting the place..well Key...
Check this for better accuracy.
No matter how accurate you will establish a base line with one but no you don't have to have any of course.
I have one on the stack plus the cat...
Just finished putting 3.3 cords of 2 year seasoned wood in the basement. Black walnut..cherry and ash mostly. let it snow!
I concur with that for sure!
That said i pay 70/fc for my wood. Usually 10-12 fc/season.
So 700-840 a season.
But I buy it and stack it out back then...
I would consider a smaller to med. cat stove also..2-3 cu.ft. range. Longer burns and ability to burn cleaner at lower temps.
Your new cat stove will burn just fine on the wood you have..pine is fine!
My cat stove loves them..but a bit pricey. That said when I get to old to want to move real firewood around I will be burning those blocks instead of...
I bet you can get it to 80 in that room now with no prob no matter the outside temp.
I think hairs are getting split way to thin when it comes to wood stoves.
Might just as well outlaw them all(non pellet wood stoves) and make...
Maybe something like this.
Sounds like wet wood to me also.
Try some scraps of known old pallets or something then report back.
Good deal that you're on top of it!
So you must have a zero clearance fireplace I'm guessing?
Pay attention to what webby is saying.
I have thawed out frozen pipes for a few people over the years that did what you want to do.
Well you should be ok if the wood gets down to 20% MC..would not want to see the percentage be much higher.
Of course you're not burning in...
Surely you jest.
It should have nothing to do with interior design,but everything to do with safety and just to know what's up.
Yep,most say to double the outside reading..i dunno.
Just wait till you do..I'm so compulsive about it now that anytime I get near the stove I usually shoot the stove in a few places..lol.
I'm in no...
You mean you have a temp gun and have not tried that yet? lol
Even with the cast outer shell the temp of it still should be higher above the cat....
Look get a ir temp gun and shoot diff spots on top the stove. If the cat is doing anything it will be way hotter above it then the rest of the stove...
