Hello Everyone. New to the site, and new to free standing stoves.Acquired a Surdiac Gotha 513, yrs ago, and am finally basking in its warmth, for the 1st time this weekend. I'm in Northern CT, and our winter really is relatively mild this yr. I'm in the experimental stages, and am loving the performance of this stove. I've seen some tips and info from your site in the past, and am glad to be a member. Hopefully (I'm sure), there is a lot of experience here, and am thankful for your tips and ideas, and maybe someday I'll be able to contribute also. So once again, Hi, and for you football fans, enjoy the game. Out for now. Joe P.S. need to learn the picture posting details and avatars. Please be patient with me. I'm not very proficient at computers.
