    We did not put any wood in the stove for overnight as it only got down to 32 last night. House was 70 this morning. Put in 2 splits and a small ugly and it started right off.

    If that's the case I'm in trouble, I'm going to be 34 in a few weeks and I already can't stand the cold and it isn't even that cold yet. !!!

    Since it's Saturday I've been burning all day so currently in the too hot mode. Living room which is usually the coldest on the first floor is 84. I like 77 personally, the wife well it depends on the time of the month ::P. It's one of the reasons I decided to switch to wood. It's nice being too hot in the winter and getting under $150 electric bill as opposed to cold and getting a $300 dollar electric bil or getting a $300 propane bill every two months. Blankets used to be common, now only the cat uses them.

    I told my buddy the other day who keeps his natural gas stat between 64-68 "your paying to be cold", you should have seen how he looked at me. He asked " well how warm is your house with the wood" I said anywhere between 70 and 78, his jaw dropped. This is the same buddy that gave me almost two face of oak.

    Dennis, You lucky dawg. 2 to 3 splits a night is a good problem to have. I think my newer 25 year old house is drafty and I go through easily 10 splits a day. At the price I am heating my house i cant really complaint. Stay warm Dennis. Regards to the missus from my missus. Weird how on random days she will ask about you and your wife. Nurses.

    I'm in the computer room right now playing some BF3 and I have a window open in here! The room is just off the living room where the stove is located and it's 82° in here, the rest of the house is about 75°. This stove really cranks out the heat, and it holds heat a lot longer than the old Efel that's for sure. I loaded the stove yesterday about 4:00 PM and when I woke up this morning I was still able to load some wood on the coals and crank another fire, that's pretty impressive!

    Typical, it is air space surrounded by walls and it also has furniture and people. A tad under 1400 sq ft. Good insulation, new doors and windows last year.
