    Being that you're in Maine, you think 3 1/4 tons is enough?

    After looking at my house the place I bought the stove from seemed to think 3 tons would be good for the winter. My brother lives in the same town same stove same age house as mine but its about 150 square feet smaller and he has been right around 3 tons for the last 5 years so I guess we will see. I'm just glad I won't be calling the oil company this winter.

    Seeing how you have 12 tons on hand now, are you trying to heat an open circus tent in Maine?

    If the house is on the small size and well insulated, you might get by. What temperature do you intend to keep your home at? I always burn 5 to 6 tons for about 2200 sq feet. Just love sitting in front of the stove with fire going when it is blowing and snowing. I just don't care one bit for digging out the next day. No longer have my snow plow. That got too expensive to keep up with all the favors being asked.

    I don't know why it is, but all you have to do is look into the eyes of the dog and you can see right off if it is connecting with you, and you know its mood. They are so smart. If I mention snack or treat in just normal conversation, my dogs come right to me and sit waiting for me to hand something out. If I have a bad day, they will get as close to me as they can. Too bad their years are short.

    I think 3 may be a little on the low side.... I go through 3 1/2 most seasons, and I keep my place cooler than most, 68 at a max, 64 at night/work hours.

    I live in Maine as well (Gorham) and I bought 3 tons last year. I ended up having to buy about 1/2 a ton extra to get through the last bit of winter. I admittedly had to fire up the furnace heat a few times and kept the temperature a little lower than I like at times.

    This year I bought 4 tons of Fireside Ultras so I'm hoping I won't have to make any late season trips to pick up more bags.
