Average Energy Usage Per Month?

Average energy usage per month?

PostBy: lundys On: Tue Oct 13, 2009 10:06 am

Just curious what you would estimate as the average monthly cost to run a new LL stoker stove on default settings? I know it will vary based on how hard the stove is working, but let's just say it's working a medium / average amount. How much am I paying in electricity each month to run the stove? Just a rough guess anyone?

Edit: forgot to mention, I am using the Coal Trol thermostat.


P.S. - by the way, I love my new LL Pocono stove! See: First Experience (ever) with Leisure Line Pioneer
