Sounds like it's a little warmer in Conn than in the Pocono's. This morning at 1am it was -6 degrees and right now it's 8 degrees. just wondering how many square ft. you are heating and how much coal you are burning each day. How long have you been running your stove at 3 1/2 and what are house temps. If this cold doesn't break soon I may have to up my setting. Thanks.
Pete, a bit over 1600sq ft. (raised Ranch finished basement/living area & master bedroom) typically 68-70* 40lb bag a day. I drop it back to 2-1/2 -3 during the day when the dogs are the only occupants. The numbers on the rheostat are not really calibrated so mine is prolly a bit different than yours. There was a topic on this years ago. Pretty much find the setting that works for you and stick with it.
