    Its 40 degrees outside with a 20 mph NW wind that is supposed to blow all night. Fired up the 30 after work tonight and the house is sitting @ 74. Secondaries are just a dancin and the stove top thermometer is steady @ 575. Best part is that I am using shoulder season shorts. Man,I love this stove. Kinda glad burnin season is about to start.

    Sounds like a good thing!


    I saw a side shot of the 30 the other day for the first time (it should be Englanders shot on their web site !!). It's on my list !!

    I seen your comment on it. Its a pretty long stove. Making N/S loading very easy.

    Got mine going too. Fired it yesterday evening. Loaded this morning at 5 before work. And then when I got home at 4 (threw in some some stuff and off to the races) there was a decent bed under the ash. Just loaded it for the bedtime load a few minutes ago. Just over 92* in my basement (only heating 800 sq of the 2,180 sq basement) 75 upstairs and 43 and dropping fast outside.

    This is an awesome stove for the money. And its much prettier than some of the more costly stoves out there. IMO. Wont beat out an Aldera or most of the Jotul's. But for a steel plate stove. Best bang for the buck.

    BB, can you tell me the distance from the back of the collar to the back of the blower?
    I'm trying to determine if I need to reconfigure the wall behind the stove when I get the 30.

    We'll each purchase one next off season. We'll call it "The Annual Stove Install & Knee Destruction 2011, sponsored by Dr. Scholl’s Knee Pain Relief Orthotics"

    I finished hooking up my Englander 30-NCH last night and had the building inspector sign off today. I built a small fire this evening to finish burning the smell out of the paint. Temps are supposed to be much cooler tomorrow - I'll throw a full load at it and see how it burns. So far so good with the new chimney - lot of draft.

    You got it. Taking the 650 pound Sierra out and putting the 30 in and then taking it out and replacing it back in 2006 shot both my knees and they have never recovered.

    Hire people. Big strong people and sit on the couch and watch.

    It's probably working it's tail off. I would move it over to a cooler part of the stove top if that spot is regularly exceeding 650F.

    Broadview Hts huh? I work in Cuyahoga Hts. Nice to see someone else in the neighborhood with a 30. They are amazing heaters.

    That is a five to six hundred spot so it should be fine. Six inches behind it is where things start getting interesting.

    Somebody is angry with me. Kinda used to that. Being an American male and all.

    When can I pick up the stove?

    With the way all these Englanders are getting installed and lighting up this year I think pretty soon everyone on hearth.com will own at least one!
    We had their 28-3500 add-on furnace at our old house - that thing was built like a tank and could really push out massive amounts of heat.

    If they would stick some re-burn tubes in the top of that thing I would have had one years ago. In fact I gave serious thought to it in 1985.

    Wow. This year Ohio is coming in strong! Where abouts in Ohio?? I work in Cleveland (Cuyhoga hts) live near Wellington.

    Papa Dave- I dont have the blower. But I just went down and measured. If the blower sticks out the back about 3-4". Then it should be about 9" from the back of the blower, to the very back of the stove collar. Hope that helps.
