Warm Weather and The Alaska 140 Auger

PostBy: xaos On: Mon Mar 11, 2013 6:22 am

just wanted to say just how nice it is to not be over heated as in years past with my hand fed.
Not trying to offend the hand fed guys & gals,
Just saying that this is great,.
The Alaska 140 is just idling along @ 150* or so (+ or - depending on where you take a reading),
barely using any coal just waiting for the next cold night to roar right back into action..

Yes I am now a girly man... LOL..

Agree!! I don't think I have opened the windowstats this year due to the stoker. The house did get pretty warm on a couple occasions but that was due to baking days where the double oven was in use most of the day.

I can bring the temps back down on days like yesterday (bright sun, low 60*'s) by opening the door from the kitchen to the enclosed porch. I call that porch my thermal dump zone.
