Re: Ash in Boiler

I usually rake my coals whenever I load and auger them out then. I usually have that much around the edges of my grating through out the season. Probably has some impact but not enough for me to worry about as long as you clean it all out when you shut her down.

I finally got them to run a natural gas line to our house. I won't mind paying a little more for heat ...

Aquastat setting

What do you guys that use an aquastat on the supply line to your water to air exchanger set it at? Mines at 100. Seems a little low to me if you want your furnace to supplement your heat.

Weather

A little cold for this time of year. Wasn't expecting February temps. I've had to plow already. That sucks!
