Hello all. I have been reading a lot of threads here on Harmans and wondering about efficiency. I have had my stove for a little over a month. My Harman dealer sells 4 kinds of pellets so I purchased 10 bags of each kind to try them out and see the differences. The differences were fairly obvious. With that said I want to try some other brands of pellets too. I have been playing around with room temp vs. stove temp. For the last week+ I have been running stove temp, one 1 or 2 (depending on outside temps) with the feed rate around 2. House has been a little chillier than desirable sometimes (obviously I can turn the stove up to solve this). I don't fully understand what the feed rate adjusts. Someone I work with told me I should leave it by 2, but from the looks of it here most people think it should be between 3-4. Also I have played around with stove temp/room temp, and auto/manual. Initially I put it on stove temp so the ignitor had to do less work, but after reading a bit more this morning it looks like that maybe isn't a huge concern. I am thinking about switching to room temp/auto. I am thinking about getting a thermostat as well, so I can set it lower in the middle of the day/night. I have been leaving the dist blower on high, figuring that if its blowing hot air, it might as well blow a lot of it. I guess the question I am trying to get at is what is the most efficient way to use the stove? I figure if its burning pellets it might as well be putting out maximum heat (sometimes on room temp as that goes up the blower shuts off, which seems inefficient to me). On a side note, I have been doing a quick scrape of the burn pot each time I put in a new bag of pellets (seems to be every 18-24 hours) and haven't cleaned the ignitor yet (about 20 bags of pellets burnt) but thinking I should do that soon. Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.
