I'm currently using two woodstoves. A basement quadrafire and a lopi on the main floor. (bi-level). I know I asked before on this forum but I'm concerned with the amount of wood I'll burn with my new Tarm Solo 40. I only burn the basement stove on colder days and nights. I usually burn about six cords a year. I don't cut and split wood because I enjoy it, or need the exercise. I do it for the heat. The Tarm has a 5 cu. ft. firebox. If my woodburning season is from Dec. till April, thats 120 days. One load daily will be 600cu. ft. or aprox 5 cords. That would be great. Now two loads will bring me up to 10 cords. Too Much! I know I'll be getting free hot water, but 10 cords is just too much work. Next winter I will have storage. I don't mind tending the stove more often, putting in Partial loads. I do plan on adding 800 gal. storage next spring.
