I had my Accentra Insert installed yesterday. I was told to run the stove on Room Temp @ 75 and the feed rate set at 4. We fired it up at 12:30 and I had to fill the hopper up around 9:00 as it was almost empty. Woke up this morning at 6:30 and it was alomost empty again, so I went through two bags in less than 24 hours. I dumped another bad in before I left this morning and I turned the temp down to 70 and set the feed rate at 3 to see if this helps. If the feed rate was set higher, would I use less pellets? When I awoke this morning there was quite a bit of ash on the burn pot. It was thicker on the edges. I am burning C & C Smith pellets as I was told these are good pellets. My basement was 78 and the upstairs was 71, so I am heating the whole house, but I don't think going through almost 3 bags of pellets in a day is right. My basement is 1100 sq ft as well as the first floor. I am all new to this and just want to make sure I am running the stove correctly. ANy help or info will be appreciated. Thanks.
