This morning with the temps hovering around 24 degrees (-4.4c) I decided to give the 208C a lite and see how that effected the house and the flow and evenness/distribution of the heat. The cookstove is so easy to light to laughable. A few twists of paper and handfulls of shop wood scrapes and two scoops of cowboy charcoal. In 15 min I threw 3 scoops of coal on and by 30 min time, I filled up and threw the "oven" switch (That's like the baseheater switch in a cookstove) and 15 min later or 45 total, I had a nice hot range. (See Pix). Almost pointing at biscuits.
Now a few hours later both stoves are about 350 degrees and the house is getting too warmish for me although the gal's and cats love it! The distribution is really better too with every room downstairs within 3 degrees of each other.
Interesting though that the upstairs is not as warm as before? Must be blocking the flow a bit somehow with the range going. Have to fool with the floor registers and see if I can dial it it in.
