    I'm either picky or spoiled... 72::F.....+-2::F variance .......anything else, I made an error. I hate being hot in the winter, seems counter intuitive, like being cold in the summer.

    Some worse case scenarios:

    "....bedrooms temps are in the 50's by morning." It doesn't get colder than -8::F here, so I understand that many face much harsher conditions. But I would have to get a burn barrel for the back room if it came to that.

    ".....stove room is 90::F, feels great....".!!! I'd be naked on the front porch, drinking a cold one.

    I've endured much worse, but Uncle Sam was in charge. This is my house.....72....+-2......

    If you can manage that +2 with just a wood stove my hat is off to you. And you will be fibbing. ;lol

    As I said, "anything else, I made an error." And I do, but I'm not very tolerant of them. I was much steadier with the old smoke dragon (when it was in the old house), but I'm learning.

    That's why I love my wood stove, I can easily keep it in the 70's in the living room and kitchen and the bedrooms can stay cold, just the way I like it!

    I guess I am one of the lucky ones. I have a very wide range of comfort zone. 62 - 82. T-shirt works for me.
