I was in the basement cleaning up all day Saturday and Sunday. The furnace only ran off the timer. The temperature of the water never dropped and the house never called for heat. It was a warm weekend though. I burned 80 lbs between those two days.
I am running 2 min 1 hr feed rate is 3 teeth Auqastat set at 140f low 180f high 10 diff T stat is a 7day digital 5am 71 11am 69 5pm 69 11pm 71 with these setting Iam burning on the timer 15lbs a day 3 teeth is 7.5lbs the timer runs for
2 hr a day when the heat kicks on it will burn 20.4 lbs a day I started it up on 10-10-08 as of yesterday i have burned 408lbs of coal the house called for heat 11 times since it was started The stack temps on idle is 95F when it heats the
temps will be 150f to 170f To heat the water from 140f to 170f it takes 23 mins then the T stat kicks off The house
is happy you may want to try a 1 hr timer and set the auqastat at 140 low to 180high with a 10 diff I was having a 4 to 5 degree overshoot on the t stat but i had it set on 3 span i knock it to 2span and the overshoot is 2 to 3 degrees i may drop it to 1 span and see what it does You may want to play around a little but then again you are using a highboy which
holds 73 gals of water compar to my 40gal so you will use more coal to heat the boiler plus your water coil is or should be a 7 gal mine is 5 gal Oh by the way I missed you when you where down at Steve's small world that you girls farther was one of Steves old racing buddy's anyway let me know how or if you try new setting
