Shut my stove down yesterday.  Early I know but I have to travel for work and the wife won't do it.  Got almost 5 cords through, maybe a half cord left in the wood shed yet.  I was planning on 10 cords this winter Nov 1st to April 1st but I didn't get to :(



Wife won't do it?????????
cut er off..

Well she use to, until she overheated it because she forgot to shut the ash drawer and had a disaster going on.  Had to get it settled down get a fitting fixed in the basement hat came apart and filled with water and back running all while I was gone and she has limited knowledge about this, which I can understand being overwhelming for a woman. She was so worried she ruined my stove and she also knows how much I spent on it. She no longer wants any part in it while I'm gone.  She will fill it if I'm home or can be home.

Please, please, please. Apples to apples not apples to oranges. You need to specify how much load your putting on your system. I'm heating just under 7000 sq. ft. and DHW with a teenage daughter! The G200 is using less than the G400 used last year and both winters were pretty mild. I'm guessing I have gone through roughly 6 to 7 cords so far (started in November) but burning up a lot of my junk wood this year that was about 4 to 5 years old. The G200 is definitely the right size unit for me.

I'm not surprised s G2 can pull that load, it's all in how its insulated, what temp you heat to, etc . I wish there was a better quick way to calc heat load. There are better ways, but not quick......
I'm heating over 3,000 sq ft in my house, 500 sq ft cabin on a G100. Plus a 900 sq ft shop with 15' ceiling when I'm in it. Just barely keeps up on nights like yesterday, 10 F and howling wind! No sign of creosote during that kinda weather.  :)

That must be a McKellar girl you have there. Growing up on highway 124 the girl next door at our cottage used to split (by hand) all the wood for her family during her summer holidays. I was in pretty good shape back then but she kept me in line.... ::)

You are exactly right Yoder, how well insulated your buildings are is the key. Also the temperature you keep them at. I have a 50x60x16 shed but I only keep it at 55 degrees which for me is perfect for a shop. It has in floor radiant and is insulated everywhere to the max. House is insulated the same.

When all my loads are calling the G200 just holds its' own and takes a long time to catch up but that is in extreme weather conditions, 20 to 30 below and howling winds.

Tomorrow we will fill the wood shed for probably the last time this season, crappy winter again. Sure glad I have a rain cap on my G200 since we are supposed to get 2 to 3 inches of rain the next few days.
