Hey All, The wife and I bought our first wood stove this fall, a Buck 81. We love it so far and have been using it as our sole source of heat in our 2,400 sq ft. home. My question is related to stove temperature and efficient burning. Our stove installers gave us a Rutland stove pipe thermometer and it seems to spend a lot of time in the creosote zone. But the fire seems hot, I'm seeing secondary burns, and the house is staying warm. Check it out on the video below. http://youtu.be/odFLLTgkNnw I gave a call to Buck and they said that the Rutland stove pipe thermometers are a bit outdated and aren't the best indicators for new, efficient stoves. What do you guys think? And also, thanks for an awesome forum. I've been lurking for a while!
