I suspect this is true of perhaps 95% of the people out there "heating with wood". And that includes people using modern EPA reburn stoves. The Hearth is full of geeks and pyros.. so you can get a skewed idea that the only way to heat your house is "our way"... I think the people here are trying to do it the "best" they can, and that is how they end up here in the first place.. But just like lots of things, only a fringe few go way out there on the edge with anything.. whether it be a $4500 fly rod, a million dollar RV, or.. three different heat measuring protocols on a wood stove.. and multi-year fuel prep.. multiple chainsaws.. color coded wood piles.. posting videos of their stoves online..
