    Hi all,
    Just a report on my setup

    I replaced my regency I1200 insert that I ran 24/7. Tough task but it heated our 1100 sqft poorly insulated 1950 home with around 3 cords of hardwood just north of Boston.

    The replacement BK has been a dream. Cold monthe I always get consistent 12 hour burns. Shoulder season I can get 24 hours easily however I usually do half loads to keep at the 12 hour load cycle. I'm currently at 2.5 cords on this cold winter and boy what a relief. I'm not sure if I would have any wood left by now with my previous set up.
    I like the house warm so the stove rm is 72-78. Old stove had trouble getting to 70 consistent but I was pushing that tough regency.
    Most important I have not heard a single complaint from the wife and kids on being cold. I win! Haha. Also my wife has not had to touch the stove. Man, happy wife happy life.
    Thanks all for the great advise. Another greatful member!
    Best,
    Dave

    It's a great stove, I love mine but my house is too big for the stove. Yes, they are easy to run, set and forget once you know your settings.
