It's not too often I complain of being too hot in the cold months when wood heat is needed. But it is hot in this house! About an hour ago my wife asked if she should keep the stove going and it was beginning to border on being too cool. So I asked her to put in 2 splits. I'm hot so went to the stove and found it at 600 degrees! This brings the question on folks heating at this time of year and putting in 5-6 or more logs into the stove. Perhaps it is just our stove/wood combination but we usually only put in 2 or 3 splits at night too and the house is plenty warm in the morning. Of course all the insulation we added a year ago definitely helps on this. I can't help but think back to our old Ashley and how it used to eat so much wood and we never got too warm. In fact, December-March was a true test because we were always cold then. Not so now!
