So from my understanding in MANUAL ROOM TEMP mode, when the stove is idle, it just tries to maintain the ESP at a certain temperature. I was trying to run manual mode for a couple weeks, however, my pellet usage was noticeably higher, even on days that were 10-20 degrees warmer. (Noticeable being a half bag+) I believe the reason why is... My OAK... I think the OAK pulling in -20 to -40 degree air is causing the stove to feed pellets constantly, to try and maintain the idle temperature. This results in the stove constantly cooling... In auto mode, the above is not a problem, since the stove will distribute heat until the ESP temperature drops, and then it shut downs. Any thoughts?
