Yes, that is pretty much the way it is. You may want to take this warm weather opportunity to see just how low you can turn it down before it dies. You may be pleasantly surprised. Don't expect it to ramp up quickly though, especially if it does not have a combustion blower.

Please don't type in all capital letters, it is considered screaming.

Unlike my wife, I would rather have to open a window than be a little chilly.

Damn this warm spells. lol

I tried that, came home to a screaming CO2 alarm. Guess I pushed it too far and lost my draft. That was kinda scary.

I found when the stove is turned down as low as possible, opening the window in the basement near the stove allows it to burn much longer. Never had a problem with the draft.
