9 deg. outside right now burning 80% cheat river pellets 20% corn. 74.5 in the living room, stove running on 1/3
3 burning Fireside Ultras in the Cab50, Envi 8's in the Jotul. 70 in basement, 68 1st floor, 67 2nd floor. 1st and 2nd are rising. Fired up the Jotul about 30 minutes ago.
-19F on cubex, keeping the house at 73F set on 4.
Up to 1F I can keep the house at same temperature set at 3.....
I want to get a 2nd stove.
Install it in the basement. 54 down there this AM with it -6 out.
Go for it! A warm basement is great especially when the wife goes down to do laundry. Keep 'em happy!
Damn, that's COLD!

Yeah, basement install and 65 UPSTAIRS at the time but rose to 70+ on first floor above basement. The stove was set back to 2-3 all day while at work and was around 60ish when I got home at 6PM. Takes some time to warm it back up again when this cold but all is good. Fell asleep on the couch with a tshirt and no socks: was warm as could be
Will probably leave it around 3-4 today. Stove has 3 floors to heat (including basement) and does a great job on first 2 but the third floor need a little help on days like today.
Quite frankly, I dont like it above 68-70...too warm for me
-31.9 no wind!!
Yeah, I also have to get on the damn eliptacle or stationary bike after work in the basement (grrrrr), so setting it back keeps it more comfy down there until I head upstairs for the evening. 3.5-4 is my normal evening setting until this kind of cold sets in. I rarely have to crank it to 5
top shelf canadian softwoods. 75 and balmy. sub zero outside.
Fireside ultra is all I have and did ok over night
Temp outside says 5 on my deck with the sun just starting to hit it
House is warm 72 and the coffee is hot
I got up at 5am and it was -1 outside, 72 in Living Room, and 67 in the bedroom, all without oil and I didn't have to bring in firewood. I should have gotten one of these years ago.
Torched about a full bag of hamers in the last 13 hours balls out castile on high..
73 degree wake up. Pleasantly surprised & toured the radiators and baseboards to see if the wife ski cranked it up this
morning or 100% quad.. Radiators were cool as can be, All pellets.
Cost about 4 to 5 bucks to heat house last nite.
Temp currently -18 at 8:44AM. WC of approx -32.
And we're burning OIL. URRRRRRR At least until next Wed anyway.
5 degrees this morning. 59 in the house. Had XXV and Woodstock Fireview going full bore last night to get the house up to 68 for bedtime (downstairs temp).
So glad I spent $10K insulating this place (?!?!?!).
Oh we're burning Maine Woods Softwood, which seems to throw a good bit more heat than the hardwoods, in my stove.
Global warming last night, it stayed above 0. 3 degrees this AM and only used about 2lbs an hour to keep the upstairs at 67 basement 72
On my last 1/2 bag of Somersets, going to switch to barefoots after that plus a fire in my fireplace insert in the basement. 10 degrees last night when I went to bed, 7 degrees this morning but about 70 or 71 in the house.
somersets. turned on the oil beast for about an hour to equalize temp in the house before bed. then for the first time put the castle on high before bed. set stat to 70. heard it kick on a couple times at night so had no trouble keeping 70. bedrooms were prob about 64 in am.
Well much ado about nothing, -4.4 , a bit breezy out however and the chickens want more beak warmers and are plotting taking over the garage.
Oh man I need to sure up my drafty house. I get so jealous reading about temperatures in your houses and the low settings on stoves. My 1800 square-foot farmhouse built in 1890 needs some serious insulation i have my Harman xxv on full blast and struggle to keep the thermostats at 66 67 On these supercold nights
Have the Harman XXV going and I fired up the Warm Morning coal stove in the kitchen last night to help out.
NO, your burning money an hurting the enviroment
