72 in the main house, basement is 80 thanks to the boiler and piping. The EFM had all it wants right now...it has been stoking for the last hour to "hold the line" and produce hot water.
I really think I need to buy whatever exactly your setup is. That's a really nice feeling to have it that toasty.
You want an old house that needs 12.5 lbs of coal per hour to hold 72?
j/k, I know what you mean. It takes a hold of btu's to keep these old houses warm in extreme conditions...a stoker boiler is a great way to do it, but they aren't for everyone.
