    Pacific Energy Super 27 Classic

    New member here and would like to get some advice from some of the other PE owners. I have been burning wood in a VC Resolute Acclaim for about 27 years. The stove has always done a good job for me but I finally got fed up with the continuing expense of replacing the combustion package...

    Blaze King Catalytic Thermometer Crudded Up

    I've got a BK Princess 15 months old. The cat thermometer operates well, but suddenly, a few months ago, it began getting a hard-to-remove black deposit on it and now is almost unusable. I notice the hole that the thermometer goes into is not a snug fit. Is there supposed to be a part that...

    Infrared Thermometers: which one do you use?

    I know not everyone uses one of these tools, but for those who do use a non-contact infrared thermometer - which brand/model do you use? Any recommendations or suggestions for getting the best use out of these? How do they compare to magnetic thermometers mounted directly on a wood stove or...

    Confused about measuring temperature

    Hi, new to wood burning but absolutely love heating our home with it so far. We just installed a Timberwolf EPI22 insert but I'm trying to make sure I'm burning at optimal temps (not worried about being too cold more so too hot). I have a basic magnetic thermometer mounted just above the door...

    Burying the stove top needle on a PE Stove...

    My father has a PE Alderlea T5 that he likes. It looks good and throw heat nicely too. Its a big reason why I got my woodstove this year. He has a tall probably 20-25' class A chimney going straight up. Anyways, the stove always runs super hot, so I got him a Condar stove top thermometer for...

    Thermometer on QuadraFire Explorer II

    Hello. I am a long time lurker, first time poster… I just installed a brand new Quadra Fire Explorer II woodstove to use as my main source of heat in my single story home in Maryland. It is replacing an older Vermont Castings. I did a ton of research in deciding what to replace my older...

    Condar Flueguard thermometer installed in telescoping DVL?

    I finally got my pipes installed on my Sirocco 30. I'm excited! :) The last decision before I fire it up is should I install a condar flueguard thermometer. I'm still on the fence. The only thing stopping me is will smoke etc. leak around the hole in the pipe? It's installed in the living room...

    Newbie with questions: What do you know about this stove?

    Hi there! (Even if you don't recognize the stove type, I have a couple other questions, too.) Mr. Claus and I are new to fireplace business with our first home we just purchased last weekend. We got our fireplace and our stove cleaned, but didn't find out much from the sweeper, who only...

    Thermometer placement

    I've read in my owners manual (VC resolute 2) that the best place for the thermometer is on the top of the right side, where the cross draft heat flows through. This is where I've placed it. However, I've also read some stove users don't even bother with a thermometer on the stove, and only use...

    Is staying in the "burn zone" necessary?

    Hello. I am new to this forum (and new to using wood stoves). Last spring we changed out an old propane gas insert to a new Napoleon 1402 wood stove insert as it was incredibly expensive to run the gas stove and we live in the woods with an abundance of wood. So far I am loving it but I do...

    New insert using a stove thermometer question

    Hello I recently had a quadrafire 3100I insert installed. It puts out a decent amount of heat and does a decent job of heating the hearth room, living room, and the kitchen if I use the blower on it. Anyways I have a question. I think I'm a good judge of getting the burn rate and temperature...
