Family Rosspike 1800sq ft. house
We got our new PACIFIC ENERGY Summit Classic Porcelain Enamel in “Red” (on order). Very nice stove! 2000-3000 sq ft heat. Our house is 1800 sq ft. We burn 2 logs at a time, coldest night has been 18 deg Fahrenheit. “our burn times” have been 8-12 hours up to 14 hours on coal heat. When it gets 50-60 deg we run 1 log about every 8 hours to keep the chill-out. Heats the whole house and does it very well. The pipe is double wall black pipe / SS inside for above the stove first floor, SS pipe second floor + attic + 5′ on the roof.
Rob do you really get long burns on Pacific Energy?
Do you really get that long of burns on your Pacific Energy? Are you able to throw-in whole logs & they burn away? What diameter typically?? Nice porcelain finish – holding up well with stove use? Correct me in I’m wrong, but does your model have the auto-thermostat feature? I’m very interested in this model when we build our house up in the “North Woods”
Hi Rob, (to set the stage). Our house is 100+ years old with storm windows and blown ins in the walls and attic, the house has been redone so it not the same 100-year-old house. The logs we burn are normally the better Btu woods. The most wood I have used at one time is 3 split logs but normally it is just 2 at a time. Like I said the coldest we have had so far is 18 deg at night. The logs are what you would think of logs for about 6 hours and then after that, they look like coal logs for the other 4-6 hours. I was very pleased when we ended up getting over 8-hour burns with good heat. Because I thought ” 8 hour burn time, yeah right” so Pacific Energy says but that’s what we have been getting on this stove. We use our full round logs for night burns with a split log (1 round 1 split) and just split logs is the day. I would say our average round logs are 9″ across and 16″ long and there will be nothing but ash after 12 hours if we let it go without a refire. The top steel plate of the stove is 3/8″ thick through our top is under the outside porcelain plate that 3/8″ thick top keep the heat rolling. “Correct me if I’m wrong, but does your model have the auto-thermostat feature?” Yes in the secondary burn chamber there is a spring that opens the fresh air inlet if you run the damper in the stove too low. You can’t go wrong on too low of a draft that you set just as long as you get the wood burning at first for 15-30 min before you close down the damper on the stove the auto spring in the burn chamber takes over if more air is needed. We had a high demand from this stove for the €€ we paid and when we started burning wood in it the stove it was 4 times better than what we expected. ” Nice porcelain finish – holding up well with stove use? ” We have only had the stove for a short time but so far it keeps its shine and cleans up very well. The “Red” colour does get a bit deeper in colour the hotter the stove is and than back to normal when not in use, not much change …… just a little.
