Good morning! Wood burning rookie here. I have a new, dealer installed, fixed rate EPA wood burning insert. Im trying to determine what temp range to try to run the stove at, and where that temp should be taken. I’ve been using an IR to read collar and box temps. At about 450 in the box (through the glass), I read about 250 on the collar. I’ve been running the stove here, by limiting the amount of wood since I can’t regulate the air with this thing. The dealer won’t commit to a temperature (I don’t think they know) and they are evasive. Quadrafire told me they won’t commit to a temperature, and to talk to the dealer. I’ve got a slight amount of creosote at the top of my chimney after running about ten loads of wood through. My wood is around 20 percent or under. Given the pics, I’m inclined to say I’m too cold, but what do you guys think?
