    Wood burning season has come into play here in New England. Down to the 30's at night, and 55-40 in the day. Installed a new stove this year, and man, does this thing crank.....EFFICIENTLY!

    The house is heated ALL winter ( or whenever need be ) by our stove ( for the past 22 years! ). The furnace doesn't come into play at all with heating, except the water.

    Right now it is 37 degrees F outside, and Inside it's 75. F. ( woops, not use to this new stove ).

    What's the temp in your home?




    Boy do I love double glass doors on a stove. :D

    Thanks HotCoals,

    It's a 1982 Salvo Machinery. Ciation IIW - W.

    Was only used by someone for a very short time. I wire brushed it, and painted it.

    80! Wow, that's not. I like 72.

    Heating for as long as you have you know for sure that at these temperatures it just doesn't take a whole lot of heat to get the house hot. Wait until January!

    Around 80 here and it feels good. Just came in from hunting and I was a bit chilly. Wife had the stove going this morning so still plenty of heat in here.

    Had a fire this morning, still about 76 in here. Weather is changing tonight though, so I will be busier with the stove.

    It's 68 in our bedroom, for us that's warm as we generally keep the thermostat set at 60.

    76 downstairs, 70 in the bedrooms. My biggest problem is that when the house gets below 72 it's too cold. 72, most of my co-works keep the house at 68. I'm spoiled.

    A comfy 70-71 in here, loaded the stove about 24 hours ago. I just turned the t-stat up to burn down the coals so I could toss some more junk in the stove. These BK stoves are just silly with their steady heat output, when I left for work at 7:30am it was 70-71 in here.

    I am 350 miles from home, but I can imagine its 85 in the basement and 73 or so upstairs. If the wife added wood before heading to her mothers.. If not, is 80 in the basement and about 68 upstairs, but she will hammer down ASAP as its going to be about 37 at home tonight..

    It's a blazeking.

    But, w/ a good ash bed I've just gone my 2nd day of loading the stove w/ 14 hours inbetween a load of 3 - 4 decent sized pieces of wood.

    The definition of "burn time" is open to a lot of interpretation. Do a search on this site and you'll see what I mean.

    Right now my stove top is 300* after 24 hours and it was 300* this morning. That is the perfect stove top temp. for this time of year for my house. No roller coaster ups/downs and no time wasted fiddling loading small fires. I don't expect this type of result once it's cold but I'm digging the free time right now!
