Old farm house, if its windy and Cold I can easily burn a full cord a week. 3000sqft.  Wind is really the big factor... It can be 10 degrees and burn the same wood as 30 degrees with high winds

E-classic 2300. In 5th year heating well insulated 2000 sq. feet plus dhw. Have stayed consistent each year between 8 and 10 cord of mixed hardwoods. In a cold year like this, I'll go through a cord every 2 weeks in Jan. and Feb. From what friends in the heating business tell me,  it's the dhw that really sucks out the btus.

Do we have to get into this here? :D   I'm in Central N.H. and a lifelong Bruins fan. Not real happy with the way things are going this year, but then again the hockeygods granted me my one wish in 2011! :thumbup: I call no bashing from Habs fans.

I live in southern Ontario, Canada , on the Michigan boarder. This is my first year with my pm 2840. My own is 110 feet from house, so my total piping is around 250 feet. My house is just under 4000 feet and we are heating my DHW for 5 people, three are kids and they use a lots of hot water.the house is 12 years old and insulated well. I leave out in the open and north wind can be a killer and big drain on heat.

I turned on the boiler on nov. 7 and so far we have burned about 12 face cords of mixed wood, all seasoned. I'm guessing I will burn 15 to 17 face cords a year.

I'm planning of stock poling 20 to 25 cords for next winter to be safe.

I need snow to melt to allow me to keep cutting, I have around 7 cords cut for next year.
