I think my problem is my stove is too small for the space. 1500sf basement is toasty, 1500sf 1st floor is so so. Stove is
at max setting, in set up or at set temp that it will never reach(85), so stove is cooking right along. I have never really seen
a "full grate fire" unless using "feed". I am bumping up the feed rate(at 62 now) and although a bigger fire, I still do not have
1.5-2 ash at end of grate. More like 3" +. I will keep messing with it, though I think by problem is stove size more than set up.
Stove is in the basement at the end of a wing on the house. The room above is the coldest in the house, I have a small
vent in the floor, but I need to put some power on it. With the giant wood stove I had before, floor would heat up nicely,
but this stoker stove is a different animal. Radiant heat is not its strength. If I can get more of the hot air up, I should be
good. Thanks for the replys
