Hi all new to the forum. Question for Hearthstone heritage owners. I just purchased this stove coming from a Vermont Castings Encore and this is my first soap stone stove. I have completed the first three break in fires. So far I love the stove but have one question is I have a soapstone thermometer on the top of the stove. From what I’ve noticed so far once the thermometer reads 300 degrees the thermometer on the damper handle starts to read in the “ too hot” section of the dial. Obviously I know this stove can be run at over 300 degrees. My question is does anyone pay attention to the thermostat on the damper or just go by the thermostat on the top of the stove? Your help and insight is greatly appreciated.
