I'm not sure what happened yesterday but today I got what I was expecting, .05 at the flue and .02 to .03 over the fire.
As far as I can tell everything is as it should be...I just wished I bought this thing years ago!
I've figured I have burned on average 72 lbs of coal per day starting Jan. 21. I bought the unit new. Would you recommend shutting down and cleaning this spring or should I be able to make it to fall/end of summer before really needing to clean. I plan on using it all summer for DHW.
Anything else to look for?
