I was just curious about how many people use a programable thermostat with their stove in comparison to the number people who keep their pellet stove at a constant temparture all winter. And also how this affects the amount of pellets they use. I currently use just under 800 gallons of oil in the winter. About 650 Gallons is used to heat my house and another 150 gallons is used for hot water. I heat 3300 sqft but in order to heat this amount of space with this amount of oil I have to drop the temperture in the house to 58 degrees 16 hours a day (when we are at work and at night when we are sleeping) and 68 degrees 8 hours a day. Does anyone use this same scheme with their pellet stove? and how does it affect the amount of pellets you use? Thanks in advance for responding.
