This is our first true day/night with the pellet stove going. I ran it part of the day yesterday and some of last night, but the power went out during the night so obviously the stove went out. Within the first hour of having it going today at a 1-3 setting, the house warmed up 6-8 degrees. We typically keep our oil fired furnace thermostat at 60. Generally it's pretty cold in here! Right now I'm sitting in front of the tv and its almost 85 in the room that has the pellet stove! My bedroom and surrounding rooms are around 76. I have a 1 story home, with a crawl space basement that isn't insulated well at all. My living space is generally pretty open, The dining room, living room and kitchen are all connected. There are 3 bedrooms and a washroom that are all on the same side of the house. I generally don't heat 2 of the bedrooms as there are no pipes in either of those rooms. I let a little heat into the washroom to keep pipes in there from freezing. All said my house is around 1300 sq ft, minus the bedrooms and a mudroom. For the first time since I have moved into the house I am being roasted right out!
