depends on your type of heating and the outdoor temp. Whe it's mild out I do 135 on 140 off and work up to 165 on 170 off when it stays below 25 or 30 during the day. I have radiant floor heat.

there is no right answer.  you can burn dryer wood at lower temperatuers than you could wet wood without running the risk of your fire dying out.  You just have to play with it, your heating demand, wood type, installation, stove quality, and more will play into this answer. 

My NCB 175 is currently on at 145 and off at 150.  Its working great.  I have no fancy digital thermostats or anything like that, I  kept it simple and use a honeywell dial style, it is within 1 degree..  I can't ask for more than that.
