Do any of you have a different fuel strategy for your wood boilers when things get colder? My son and I brought in enough wood to get us through the next five days of cold because I am on a tight schedule for those days. We seperated out any Pine slab wood and brought in only the hard wood. That is 95% White Ash and 5% Cherry. I brought in any Cherry I could find. I loaded up the boiler last night using small rounds and splits (3-5") to prevent bridging and keep good gassification. Worked great. It is 0 this morning and when I got up at 05:30 and came down to check the boiler it was running and had enough red coals to spread out over the nozzle and put some wood on. The boiler was filled to the top last night when I went to bed at 09:30. So I am curious. Do any of you guys do anything different with your fuel supply when things get colder? My E100 Wood Gun is heating a large house, garage, and domestic hot water. It is going to be colder the next few nights from the looks of things. I will probably stay up an hour later on the coldest night and load then. Might try slightly larger rounds and splits to see if that buys me a little more time. So 09:30-05:30 got me eight hours at 0 . Another night not to long ago we had -5 and I came down stairs after seven hours of sleep to find the boiler empty with just enough red coals in it to throw some wood on and let her rip again. Nothing like heating everything with wood, and as I bring the wood in, walk by my oil tank and see it is still at the half way full mark where it has been for over a year. It is suppose to go to -5 - 20 the next few nights. Thanks for any suggestions. Sorry about the novel.
