I have been burning coal for over 5 years, I have been using the thermostat control dial that came with the stove which require manual setting (never the best). Just purchased the coal trol been looking at them for a couple years.
Neal was great in helping me get it installed since my stove required some wiring changes to get the feeder to operate. My Question does anyone have a min and max feeder rate for the Chaining stove? The one listed in the book for a Alaska paddle feeder is 6 MIN - 30 Max.
I found that the stove is not heating the house at the Max rate of 30, I've increased it to 40 and that seems to be doing the trick. Reading some other forum posting it is strongly recommended using the settings in the manual. Temps outside have only been in the upper 20's and low 30's when I installed the coal trol system - Not sure what will happen when the temp drops down to the single digits or teens. Previously I only had to increase the dial on the thermostat to 3 or 3.5 at those temps.
