I actually had her running for a test burn the day after I picked it up. I wanted to bake the paint, before I hooked up the heat jacket......MAN, this stove can put out the heat!
I have my cold air return tied directly into one of the convection blowers, and let me tell you...It works very well. It has been int the 20's at night here, and I have kept my downstairs(where T stat is) at 70*. My second floor is slightly cooler at 67*....PERFECT for sleeping.
Even with the heat jacket, this baby still radiates a good amount of heat, which is great because the stove is in the basement so it heats my hardwood, and my tile in my downstairs bathroom...BONUS!
We are extremley happy with our purchase.
Thank you to everyone here, for such great information!
Also, I received my loaner manometer.....
Some quick readings:
Outside temp: 29*
Stove temp 475*
Manometer: -.05 WC
Outside temp 36*
Stove temp 200*(near Idle)
Manometer: -.04 WC
How do they look???
