    Nofossil seems to be on top of most things. How about WAF when pregnated?! Throw the thermistats out.

    That's not a problem, when it's time for the WAF to go through the "change" cycle, that's when you throw the tstats out. Mind you mine isn't really in it yet.

    I usually find something to do with the gasifier during W cycle. Maybe move a pile of wood, organize it by length, type, maybe color. Clean some pennys.

    We had -5 here in south central NY last night, and I did get up once to reload the GW. I still think that if I have to get up, say, the 10 coldest nights, it's worth it to me to have gotten the smaller unit. It cuts down on the idling and during the transition seasons, I can build a small fire that will heat my DHW without wasting a ton of wood.

    From the looks of the forcast, I may even chance no 2:30 alarm tonight. :wow:

    Explain that please. If I could teach my system to always circulate to the zone with the lowest differential between desired and actual temps, I say I could plug my oil burner back in and it would never fire.
