Temp settings

Hello everyone my wife and i are new coal users this season.we have a l.l. pocono stoker with a power vent system and the coal-trol thermostsat. Our system is in our basement which is 64 wide 31 deep and 9ft concrete walls that are framed and insulated. future MAN CAVE. My question is should we keep adj the temp or leave it at 1 temp? it seems if we lower the temp because of changing weather outside the return time when we turn it back up isn,t fast enough to get the house bach up. Should we keep it at 1 temp and open the windows if it gets too warm? Thanks Jeff

With the Coaltrol, Most of us keep it at one temp or not more than 1 or 2 degree differences if needed. But coal takes take to react, it can take and hour or more for it to react to temp changes. That why it's easier to maintain a constant temperature.

Do some reading and SEARCHING on here, it's been discussed numerous times.

Maybe post a pic of your setup.

YOu will have fun with it.

I sometimes hit the MENU for 10 seconds until it says FEED, hit he UP Arrow, let it feed for 10 mins (Heats up FASTER) then hit the menu 2 time to the FSA and hit the UP or down arrow to adjust the FAN SPEED MANUAL to 50-99 to get it moving the heat faster! Just remember to put it back to FSA (Fan Speed Auto).

I usually keep it at 64-65 and maybe bump it up 1 or 2 degrees if needed. But thats the optimium temp for my house, it doesn't run over at all and maintain pretty good.

Forget the stove, our resident experts will take care of you easily. I want a picture of your basement and what was it originally? That's what I am most envious of.
