Fired stove to dry the house

PostBy: Paulie On: Mon Jun 22, 2009 7:52 pm

Well, here I am burning coal in late June. Caught a late nor-easter here in metro Boston, big water, big humidity. Fired
the pioneer, house is drying down nicely. The more I use this thing, the more I love it. :D Building out a show room in my
store, looking forward to selling them. Coal is a dirty word around here, going to push the Anthracite Advantage, no better way
than actually using them. 8-)

Nothing wrong with drying out the building. My basement was quite damp the last few days. Unfortunately, I already cleaned and oiled down the stove for summer storage. :cry:

Yeah, I wish I hadn't 'summerized' my stove during all this rain. Sure could have used it this past week to dry out the lower level of the house. I cried, when I plugged in the dehumidifier :cry2:

I never got around to oil up the stove. I cleaned and left it. No issues, so basement is not too damp. I fired stove in basement, opened doors in central stair case, and put a fan in a window up stairs, pushing out. House is drying down nicely.
Stove is performing flawlessly. I am always amazed at how well this thing works. My LL Pioneer is my friend. :)

My cellar is warm and dry, thanks to Anthracite. :D The dehumidifier is unplugged and lonely... :cry:
