Beautiful heat

PostBy: 07roadstar On: Tue Oct 29, 2013 5:34 am

Can't say enough about coals consistent heat in my house. The basement 2200 stove is purring along at a constant temperature. I went to bed and the temp inside the house was at 73 first floor and 70 second floor. Got up at a little after 4am and the temps are still the same. Unbelievable when the temps outside was dropping through out the night because right now its 24F. I never had my pellet stove do that!
Love it.

You can thank your barometric damper for the steady heat. It keeps the negative pressure in the stove consistent, which in turn keeps the primary combustion air flow consistent. :D

During these periods of mild weather, I'm getting 24 hour burn times with only a variance of a few degrees over the load door.

Just kidding, but I do whole heartedly agree on the deep warmth coming from these stoves. The oil fired water baseboard that was my primary heat before left the house always feeling cold, the coal heat is absorbed into all the floors a walls and feels like I'm living inside a fur blanket.

Yes Rob is north and it gets colder were he is because of the winds. So how cold did it get for you Rob? I did buy 4 bags of Kimmel nut just to try it out. A lot of fines but guess it will have to do for now. The wife is liking the heat but I think its because the floor is warmer on the feet!! :funny:

Until the lake freezes over we are usually a few degrees warmer than the surrounding area. 26F this morning with a NW breeze.

If your bride is happy you are on the right track. Don't be tempted to dump the ash pan into a different container in the basement...unless you want to explain the fine layer of ash on everything upstairs. Handle the ashes very carefully and carry them outside before dumping. I know that sounds like common sense, but you might be surprised how many have made that mistake.

Happy myself. 26 outside and 72 in the house. Even the breezeway between the barn and house is a respectable 65. Before the stove would have had to turn that zone on to maintain 60. Stove cruising at 400deg. Still plenty of room to go if need be. Glad it only took me one season heating with oil to see the light. The heat from coal definitely is a welcome feeling after oming back in from outside. Have a good heating season. Matt

Whenever I have to shut down my wood-coal furnace for a day or two, I just hate the way the propane furnace heats compared to coal (or wood). When burning propane some parts of the house are warm, others are not. When burning coal or wood there is just a deep, even warmth that permeates every square inch of the house. There's just no comparison. Love coal! (and wood too!) :D
