So what dose all this equate to Financially?
If you want to heat the average house you will
need about 4 tones of wood to burn, every season.
My stove runs at 80 to 85% in my back yard with
Normal stoves only run at their 76+% efficiency
in a lab under controlled conditions and after numerous trials!
So in reality if you have a stove that has secondary
burn, you are getting +- 60% Eff.
So 20% better is 20% less wood, and on 4 tones
that is almost 1 tone! That is one hell of a lot of chopping and splitting!
know what you are paying for wood, or if it even justifies the cost of my stove over others, but what I can say though is
"ONE TONE OF WOOD!! Man that is one hell of a lot of wood!" 2That is a lot of going out in to the cold, and one hell of a
lot of opening and loading of the fire!!"
Lastly the messy job of cleaning
is now only done once a week not every morning. (I have been burning pallets, and have to get all
the nails out, more so than any ash! if I was burning logs it would only be probably once ever two weeks?
this is using the stove every day for 7 to 8 hours to heat the entire house.)
