Thermostat and Pellet Stove
I recently purchased a Timber Ridge (Englander) 55 (1500 sq ft)automatic start pellet stove for my 1000 sq. ft. cottage. The stove starts up and runs just great, but even on the lowest setting (heat - 1, bower - 1), it will heat the inside up to 75 degrees, blowing us out. As a result, I'm only getting 15-16 hours out of a bag of pellets. I would like to keep it around 68, which would also make the pellets last longer.
I was considering buying a wall thermometer for the unit. My understanding is that it will not regulate the temperature, only the pellet flow to the burn pot.
Does anybody have experience with these thermometers or with the stoves. Thanks in advance for any ideas.
