Hey gang, I'm a new guy here so go easy on me! I've been wondering about efficiency ratings, BTU's, and exhaust temperatures. When stove ratings are calculated do they take into account EGT's? Take two stoves with an identical firebox size. Say that Stove A burns 80% efficient and has an average exhaust gas temperature of 500*F and Stove B also burns 80% efficient but has an average EGT of 200*F. It follows that Stove B is putting much more BTU's into the space to be heated. Does this figure into stove ratings in any way? This is probably a really dumb question, but it's been bugging me as I look at newer stoves and their ratings. Thanks in advance, and thanks very much for all the great info I've gleaned here since finding you guys a few weeks ago. You'll be happy to know that although I've been heating solely with wood for almost a decade this week marked the first time I've gone and cut wood this early in an effort to continue to get ahead. You did that! Thanks again!
