Not on my house. My 1600 is a nuclear reactor in my house. I get 2' ice dams on my house cause it melts all the snow off the house.
That does not speak well for your level of insulation
No, no it does not. Which is why I went with an over sized stove. The house was built in 1948 as a summer lake house so its not insulated much at all; only what I've managed to do. It only became a full-time live in home in the past 10 years. My wife and I are actually the first ones that live there all year round. The attic is insulated but not very well.
