Two years? And you're relying 100% on wood to heat your home? You'll be lucky to push into the first week of March if that's all you have. It takes three to four cubic feet daily of stacked wood to keep an average home nice and cosy, which works out to four-to-six weeks of heat per cord, and that's at average winter temps.
Order up another cord, cowboy, and start drying them logs.
Ahhhhh not quite 100%. We use baseboard in the bathroom downstairs and to heat one bedroom down there too, but with some creative use of fans we manage to push the wood stove heat around. 95% of the living is upstairs, with just wood heat.
Last winter we burned less than two cords, and we’ve gotten better at it since so I’m hoping we will burn more efficiently this season. I’m optimistic we’ll get away with 1.5 cords this winter, but we shall see, we may need another cord for the end of next winter
Old owners said they burned four cords a year, but they had a real crappy old insert. Our new stove is amazingly efficient. Money very well spent.
