14 degrees here this morning so we will be burning for a few more weeks.

Yup, I haven't seen it but it's gotta be a monster. But those NC based manufacturers seem to have added a lot of extra storage because NC had a solar rebate.

Boilers will only be allowed to operate from Oct. 1 through April 30 per the town charter. I am hoping to average 4 cord a year of wood I buy, with a few cord of junk wood from around the house. I am getting way better mileage out of the log pile with my new thermostat setup.

Indiana Law only allows a OWB to be used from September 15th to May 15th, Which kinda surprises me, I never figured they’d be so liberal on the actual days of use.

The existing logic functions really aren’t there for having it only control a relay if sensor 1 is over a minimum setpoint and over sensor 3.

My primary backup is controlled strictly by two Ranco’s and the clever use of single or double pole double throw relays.

The secondary backup for now is controlled by a Honeywell aquastat and a snap disc.

I've considered shutting down this summer, but am concerned about the condensate forming on every uninsulated surface in the humid mornings. I know there was so much condensate that had formed last year before the initial startup that water was dripping from the underside, the firebox was not much shy of a pond as well.

On the second though, it is nice to have a dry basement garage since the manifold is down there, even if it does hit 120 degrees in the summer.

Looks like I will have gone through 12 cords by the first complete year.

I still have about a cord left.  It was in the 70's today.  I'll probably stop burning once this cord is gone, even if it snows and gets cold again.
