I have a Empress FS stove that I have been using for 2 years. I was looking for a way to have it come on at a certain time to start warming the room/house. Enviro support directed me to the on/off and hi/low thermostat functions of the stove. - Has anyone used these functions? Hooked up a thermostat to their Empress? From what I read, everyone recommends the Hi/Low function instead of the on/off function for a number of reasons I won't get into here, but I agree with them. Does anyone know if you can still use the stove in a manual mode, that is, use the control panel for selecting pellet speed? Thanks!
