Hi there I am a new member. I currently have an Alaska Channing 2 stoker stove in my shop that does a wondeful job of heating it. The only complaint that I have is the noise of the blower and stoker, but I put a coal trol on it and it keeps very accurate temperature. I am thinking about installing a hand fired unit in my house. I am looking at the Reading Swatara. I was wondering if any one has had any experience with this model. I was also wondering if any one has had luck adjusting the air down on a warmer day without being baked out of the house. It would go into a stainless steel double insulated chimney so draft would be very good. Thanks for any input.
