    your kitchen looks like this, and you are not supporting foreign oil.

    :coolsmile:

    What are some of your inside / outside readings?

    My stove is in the basement and this is on the first floor.

    13.6 outside.

    76.1 about 10 feet from the stove. The stove isn't really working hard at the moment. My kitchen is running about 65. If I turned the fan on in there it would be a few degrees warmer. The rest of the house is held about 60 via natural gas. I don't burn foreign oil either. (Although I think we produce most of our own heating oil.)

    It's not the size of the firebox.... FWIW, it is about 70* in the upstairs rooms.

    This AM, 4* outside and 80 in stove room. 62* in bedroom, perfect to sleep. Wind chill last night at a chimney fire was -20, wind gusting to 50mph. Saved the house, no extension into the walls. Be safe.

    14 this morning, wind chills in the low single digits overnight. Comfortable 69 in the living room when I woke up at 5, 78 when I left for work at 6:30. My wife loves waking up to a toasty house.

    I have better wood, better insulation and a better system this year for overnight burns. The last couple years, I would have woken up to a living room temp around 62 in this kind of weather.

    Life is indeed good.

    Heating with natural gas heat in 2006 - averaged $525/mo. and temp inside was 63 to keep $ down
    Heating only with 1 kerosene heater and no natural gas in 2007 - averaged $410/mo and temp inside = freaking cold!
    Heating only with wood pellets in 2008 - $250 (50 bags) so far out of our total bags - average temp inside a balmy 73 (yeah baby!)
