Actually, it shouldn't. Heat output correlates with burn rate, and that depends on the air supply rate, which in turn is controlled by the thermostat. The difference between small and large splits is the surface area, which means that a lot of small splits will smolder all at once, whereas a few big splits will burn more vigorously. It may affect the burn time because you have free space between the splits and while the firebox looks full, it's actually less wood than with larger splits.I find split size plays a small part in heat output and burn time.
That makes sense, I'm finally on a 3 year ahead timeline, sure makes burning a stove easyYa, I’m running the big chunks a little high as they aren’t perfectly dry. Basically too lazy to chainsaw them smaller just entertainment on the weekend. Ones too big to fit ( I tried!) so it’s getting sliced .
Don't forget tax credit applies to both primary and secondary residences!Well, I bought an Ashford 30 in metallic black. I made the mistake of stopping in to look at them in person. Boy, that was a mistake! I just sat and opened and closed the door. Best door hinge design I have seen. Then the owner of the shop said, pull out the ashpan. Couldn't believe how smoothly it pulled out. Just a lot of attention to detail. It came with a blower and I really like the blower design as well going right through the stove.
It's going to be a while before I actually install it. Going to remove all the laminate flooring and my current hearth and lay down porcelain wood tile in my whole living room. They had the chestnut brown enamel and it was beautiful but there is just something about a black stove that seems right.
If this thing is as good as I'm hoping, I might have to replace my cabin wood stove with the same model. Time will tell. In the meantime, lots of work to do!
Making progress on the pile!This is one of my piles I need to whittle on. That’s my elk hunting buddy in the yellow coat.
Interesting; on my Chinook the minimum swoosh (smallest white part) is just past vertical, which is what I call 1 o'clock. With the max at 6 o'clock as for you.Still not sure what time it is ha ha, is this 2:00 ?
