I'll burn what ever it takes. Got the boiler and
one hand fed running at the moment. That will get
me through the cold snap.

What cold spell? After last week this is nothing more than a blip on the radar.

The old AA130 coasted right along through heating the house, water, and garage without breaking a sweat. You folks that need more than one appliance might need one. :P

I'm all set..... I spent today getting ready to mix concrete in the shop tomorrow. Need to pour a nice size pad in front, and around the new chimney. Then I'll be able to move the stove over by the chimney where it should be. Until then, it's about 15 feet or so away. Long diagonal pipe going to new chimney. It gives me heat, yet not in the way. As for the house, I'll leave that task up to the Kaa-2. Oliver

The LL Econo 1 pumped right along. When it was minus 1 I had to put it almost at max but it held it's own. House was about 5 degree cooler than normal but 67 instead of 72 with minus 1 outside?????

I'll take it.

Truthfully I beleive it's the winds that will make it brutal...

I agree if your heating system doesn't keep up ypu should invest in a bigger one.

I wish you luck with the comming front. It's about 5 degrees colder with about the same wind as the last storm.

Our stove faired well with this past snow storm. I am confident with the coming cold snap. It was close to maxed out, running about 600*. We rarely see temps in that range for extended periods. Wacky weather pattern this season. The forecast calls for near 50* by mid week! Stay warm my friends.
