First of all, thanks for a great forum. I’ve been through a lot of it, but still have a lingering doubt. Specifically, I read through a 25 page thread from last year by a member who replaced his old stove with a big Blaze King. The final conclusion seemed to be that his new stove just didn’t put out the btu’s that his old one did, and couldn’t heat his whole basement plus the upstairs. The Bkaze King is certainly high on my list of new stoves. I’m looking for higher efficiency (less wood burned) and cleaner air and chimney. But I’m a litttle concerned I might have the same problem. We live in NE Connecticut, 2000 square foot house, fairly well insulated but a lot of windows and doors. Not terrible winters, but always a few weeks of temps in the teens (F) or lower, and a few below zero nights. During those periods, I run my Vermont Castings Vigilant wide open, and it keeps the house comfortable, but certanly not overheated. Maybe 70 max in the daytime; on a cold night the oil burner will kick on as the stove is closeed down to last all night. We burn all hardwood. Mostly maple, oak, ash, hickory, and some birch. Will I also find that a modern clean stove won’t make the high output that I need on the really cold days? Currently my wood is seasoned for 6 months to a year. In the future, I’ll dry it longer, but will I have a problem this winter? Thanks.
