I see a few of you guys are burning already..
I've been running the wood pellet insert in one end of the house and a little electric piggy heater in the new living room so far to keep the chill away.
This time of year I scope out the long range forecast for October and look for a good time to fire up the furnace. Last year it was Oct 26th, year before was closer to Halloween. I'm hoping to fire it a bit earlier this year since I've got the water coils to help my electric bill and I've gotten better at running lower fires so it doesn't get too warm in the house. For my area, It seems that Oct 9th is looking good, pretty cold at night and highs generally in the 50's, So I'm gonna tentatively plan a fire up for that day this year..
Anyone else have a fire up date in mind?
