Hey Everyone, I am new to the forum and could use some input on my new Hearthstone Sterling DV gas stove. I have a 2840 Sq Ft home and it is on a slab single story. It is 5 years old and extremely well insulated with 8 in thick walls on a good majority of the home. The stove is a 38000 btu unit with 12000 btu output on low. Currently the temperature at night has been 30 degrees and on low the unit is pretty much heating the home. Keeps the main living area 70+ and the rooms are 66-68 degrees. It hasn't been cold enough to need to turn it on high and so far we are thrilled with it's effectiveness. Since we put it in we have not used the furnace at all. Here are my questions: With the thermostat set to 70 - Should I just let it run? We were nervous to leave it on while not at home, like most people probably are....and have so far just set the temp and let it be. Gas before fees looks to be .29 cents per therm in my area. So it is cheap. Is it safe to just let it run all the time and don't bother going up and down with the setting? Finally the flame on high hits the top of the stove and billows a bit....Looks like it is perfect for high heat but I was not sure if it was safe if the flame is hitting the top like that. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
