    Last night I left my stove on what I thought was medium settings and I woke up this morning and the room was 94 degrees. What's the highest your stove has gotten your room up to? I am burning Greene Supremes.

    Ha funny question. There was this one night a month back ...I checked the hopper and knew I would need to top it off in the morning so I grabbed an ice cold bag out of the garage and set it near the stove. Went to bed and about an hour later i woke up to a unusually warm bedroom. The living room temp was 95 degrees and I though something was wrong with stove. Check the room temp, ok. Wtf? Then I realized I placed that ice cold bag of pellets on the temp probe.

    Kinda like the dude I went to last week that was ranting and raving that his brand new Harman was broken and was burning out of control.... Got there to find his room temp probe taped to the window glass of the exterior slider door. Oooops.

    I don't know. I tried to let it go but when it went over 80 I couldn't stand the heat
    and turned it down.

    Pretty sure as High as I wanted.... But using a stat, it's pretty easy to control.

    If I cranked the Wood eater (I do this daily), cranked the Quad (Never done this) and Cranked the Fahrenheit (Never done this also), I think within 2 hours, the walls would melt :cool: or I would ;)

    If the stove has the option for a stat, I would highly suggest getting one. Lux 500 or 1500 is cheap and has some good options that work with almost all stoves (good swing).

    On setting 2 I can get it up to 80 degrees. I can not stand it that warm, 72 is nice. I know If i cranked this thing up to the max. I could easily get it up to 100 degrees in the stove room.
