    Go for it! A warm basement is great especially when the wife goes down to do laundry. Keep 'em happy!

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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
