I know with wood you can have creosote problems when run to low. New and not sure if there are any risks when low.
No such thing as an ideal temp Billy. Every house, stove/chimney system & location is different. The best thing to do is just learn through trial & error. (How hot do you need to run your stove to maintain the desired house temp you want?) This will change with outside temps & from house to house,. Sorry, but there is just no shortcut for experience.
In terms of low fire temp risks, coal does not give off creosote at any temp & other than losing your fire & carbon monoxide dangers, I can't really think of any low temp dangers. A few good CO detectors is an absolute must!
Welcome & good luck!
