    Re: Wood stove

    New Blaze King is in. Fired it up around 2:00.

    I’m sold. Hooooooly shit this thing is the best.

    It’s the Ronco Rotisserie. Just set it, and forget it.

    No smoke from the chimney at all. None.

    No flames in the firebox. Few barely visible coals.

    Catalyst is glowing. Stove top temp is between 490 and 580.

    Turn the fans on, thermostat gives it more air automatically.

    I’m smitten and it’s only the first day.

    Re: Wood stove

    Sold our Hearthstone 8040 to a family in VT. They have a 1,000 sf house. The wife was concerned it was too small (1.3 cu ft firebox): the stove is rated for 1,200 sf. But the other stoves they looked at were too big, so they bought it.

    Wound up putting it in their truck with the overgrown lawn tractor. 313 lbs.

    For no other reason than just being curious, does anyone have a bush-button starter stove yet? Ya know, the new jobbies with the push button igniter built in?

    Crumpled newspaper (not glossy) and dry wood. Works every time.

    Anyone have any experience with these? I don't burn a ton of wood, seems like 1-1.5 cords a year. I like to run the stove on the weekends while we're at home all day and then whenever it drops below 20 degrees I keep it going 24/7. So my woodshed needs are really less geared towards getting a ton of wood seasoned in the spring, and more long term storage.

    Getting wood (heh...) is mixed. Sometimes I have a tree to drop that's good firewood, sometimes I'll get a cord delivered. I prefer the former as I get better control over the size of the splits but sometimes I don't have the time or opportunity to do it. I think 2 cords of storage is plenty, if I built it at 12x6x6 it would give me bit over 3 cords if I stacked it to the ceiling.
    I built a little wood storage spot with leftover material I had hanging around...seems to work ok

    Like, a push button igniter like you'd see on a gas grill? But on a wood stove?

    Yup, pretty much. Lopi has it available on the newer models and I've heard of others. Theirs is called Green Start or some shit. Nothing needed other than kindling. Just pattern your kindling, hit the button, and done.

    I have no desire to replace my stove for this (I don't think they're for the older stoves), just wondering if anyone has one yet.

    Huh. Novel enough.

    I bet the forced hot air helps with draft for those who use a masonry chimney as well.

    I was thinking the same thing. Most of our chimney is in the interior. The only part that's outside is on top of the house, so that's not really an issue for us.

    Me neither, but if your wood is too big, or less than dry, and it's one of those days where it just won't light easily, then this could potentially be pretty sweet.

    Re: Wood stove

    What is it? Basically a heat gun that gets the wood hot enough to ignite if it is dry enough?

    Re: Wood stove

    It sounds like it is almost exactly that; a micro-controller controlled heat-gun.
    Not worth money imo.

    Seems to be basically. I was told the air gets to 1400 degrees.

    It may worth the money if you have a wife that can't micromanage a woodstove fire to get it going properly! LOL!

    My wife is good once it's going. She just doesn't have the patience to coax it along when she's starting fresh. I can't count how many times I've come home to "...I couldn't get the fire going...", only to get it roaring in ten minutes time with minimal effort!

    Re: Wood stove

    Well, our new furnace is up and running. The Heatpump is in place and wired, but they still have to pipe it in to the furnace. We placed it under the deck. No pipes on the outside of the house is pretty sweet. Can't wait to get that part up and running as well. So far the furnace is an amazing upgrade. It is quieter than the old one, moves a LOT more air and the discharge temps are much lower, making it generally more comfy in the house without hot and cold spots. The ecobee thermostat system is cool. It knows I'm home before I turn down the driveway and switches to occupied temps.

    Re: Wood stove

    Still rocking the Old Mill wood stove.

    Had to replace some basement windows due to rotting wood and also added some drapes for the basement slider. What a difference! I can get heat to the upstairs in as little as 2hrs now....which is great because I am currently looking at an issue with my boiler after I changed my sediment filter. I think something during the filter change resulted in a blockage in the heater coil. Won't know until I try a few things. It's a Weil-McClain WTGO tankless, if anyone has suggestions or ideas.

    Re: Wood stove

    I cap'ed the tankless circuit of my boiler off last year and installed a hybrid/heat-pump 80-gal electric tank. Best decision ever. Hot showers for days, negligible impact on our electric bill, and I can shut the boiler down all summer.

    Tankless boiler take-off domestic hot water heating has been described to me as "the least efficient way to heat water possible". After the last year I believe it.

    Nicely ACs the basement too. Working down there in the hot, humid days in August is a treat.
