My wife used to stand 6" away from the front of the stove while telling me how dirty coal is. I took the high road...

Well, I'm live again. I get home from work yesterday and my two year old daughter is stomping around the living room singing, 'I'm cold, I'm cold, I'm cold.' I asked my wife what it was all about and she tells me, 'All day she has been singing that. At one point she stomped into the bedroom proclaiming, 'I'm turning the heat on!''

So, I got down to my daughter's level and asked, "Do you want daddy to light the stove again?"

Her reply was, 'Yes. Then come play with me.'

Good thing I put the inducer back on. I've got it set for .04" on low and the stove is idling along at 160° my wife says the house is 72°.

Last week, the stove had to be set for 250°-300° to keep the draft at .01"-.02" and the house was every bit of 90°.

Way too warm for coal heat in northern CT. I have my Harman in the basement and a dinky wood stove in the living room. I've been burning about 4 logs a night in that wood stove and the house is still over 70* the next morning.

Not to warm for me to burn. I'm just Idling along with a stack temperature at 110º and and the stove is 180º and it keeps the dampness out.
I don't mind the cool air but the dampness is just to much for me.
My stove is in a finished basement. Up and down are very comfortable. :)
