Hey:

Anyone out there have a woodstove that makes you feel like your gonna heel over?

I have a small house so when I get it cranking I feel like im gonna pass out.

The reason I'm running it like many is to save on the heating bill.

This winter has been the worst for me with the dang thing.

I feel like one of the coal workers on a locomotive train, LOL!!

Just venting... as we speak it's located where my computer is and I'm dying here!

Anyone??? LOL

Can you get your computer located a little further away from the woodstove?

Computers don't like heat, they prefer it a little cool. Maybe you could work out a deal for both of you.

We actually spent more money on heating with our wood stove.

Due to the pull of air into the stove and expelled through the top

It was pulling cold air from every possible gap in the windows

Or insulation, even under the doors.

So while the room with the stove was hot enough to set off the smoke/heat alarms,

The rest of the house was cold.

We opted out of a fire place or wood stove with our new house.

Course I live in Louisiana and we don't usually get too cold for too long.

Hugs,

Geneal

Woodstoves when used for a few months start smelling like creosote. The smell makes me physically sick.

Maybe you should move to the sunbelt and forget having to heat most of the time.

Hi,Please get a carbonmonoxide tester.

They have gotten real cheap .

You want to be on the safe side.

I feel just like you describe when the Carbonmonoxide gets in my house.

Lymeloco:

Actually it is my woodstove thats making me feel worse...

I heat with it all winter also. Maybe you can tolerate it more. Are you an MD?????

I didn't know you could say that it isn't my woodstove making me feel worse if you weren't a doctor...

I know for a fact that heat actually kills off the spirochetes... so maybe that has something to do with it.


Actually many Chronic Lyme patients are not tolerant to heat/cold... You already probably know that.. since you know that my woodstove isn't making me feel worse!

I am going to hope that winter ends real soon for you,

So that you can go back to feeling better.

I found the heat from the stove to feel smothering.

I often would sit as far away from that stove as I could.

I had a carbonmonoxide detector too and that was never an issue.

Do you think it could be the wood?

Sometimes the wood has mold in it.

I always ordered mine. It was always oak and it came dry.

Keeping it dry here in Louisiana wasn't easy though.

Hugs,

Geneal

Kreynolds, so now I'm curious. What is the room temp where your computer is, and what is it in other rooms?

Could you bank down the stove a little so it's not so hot where you are?

Perhaps save computer time for when the stove isn't cranked up so hot?

Geneal:

I think its a mix between the wood, smoke, and

ash that adds to the problem. The wood we have

is fine, nice and dry, but when it snows it gets

wet! we tarp it and everything. Just like you

said its the heat that feels like it

is "smothering" me. We use a large cast iron

kettle full of water so it puts some water in

the air, but it still doesn't help!

Thanks Again!

Melodymaker:

The room temp where my computer is, is probably

Maybe a little hotter. We have a fan on the

woodstove, we can turn it up or down to regulate

air coming out of it. The only problem is the

wood stove still throws off massive heat. I try

not to spend most of my time in this room in the

winter. I'm a Lymie though and have to use the

computer, we all need the computer!! LOL well

thanks again for your response!!!

we have livestock feed stores here in texas.

Wood pellets for wood pellet stoves are neither cheap nor readily available compared with ordinary fuel wood in many parts of the United States and Canada. Demand has outstripped supply since 2005 as more and more people have turned to pellet stoves as a supposedly economical alternative to other forms of heating and one that draws on a domestic supply of fuel rather than overseas oil and gas.

Cost and availability varies seasonally and from region to region. Your local Home Depot, Wal-mart, Lowes, Ace, Agway, etc. may carry wood pellets but not always be in stock. Although they receive periodic deliveries of maybe 18 to 24 tons throughout the heating season, this may sell sell out within an hour or two since their prices tend to be lower. Call to find out when the next delivery is expected so as not to miss out. As an alternative try your local feed & grain suppliers but be prepared to pay more.

Most chain stores sell by the ton (fifty 40lb bags) not by the bag, so be sure to have adequate transport on hand. Look for a price of US$200 to $230 per ton if you buy in bulk. Prices per bag vary greatly in the $5 to $10 range, depending on location and grade.

I don't feel comfortable with wood burning heat. It is too dry for me. If I'm in someone's house I feel like the walls are closing in on me.

I'm dry in so many ways. I finally broke down and had a friend in heating & air put a humidifier on our gas furnance. Oh, I wish I would of done this sooner.

I don't go around blowing out light bulbs, wall sockets, switches, and grandchildren.

How many bags would get me through a cold day here between 18-40 degrees if I burn it all day? Just trying to figure out the price compared to the wood that I had purchased. I paid $300 for 3 cords of unsplit seasoned wood. I heard that pellets are a lot of money, through the winter months. My main heat supply is oil. It costs around $450 to fill the tank, thats why I'm running the stove. I dunno in the long run whats cheaper. I know for sure the heat of the stove is killing me! Thanks for the info again!

Roy,

YOU have the stove set too high!! 88 degrees is about 20 degrees too high,,,no wonder.

IF you cant damper down the air and control burn it,,ie lower temps,,,get a air tight stove and SAVE huge dollars.

I am uncomfortable with that high of heat also. MY thermostat is set on 65 and it stays 66 right here at HEAD level. Prob is floor is 60 or colder so a fan would be nice to stir the mix

BUT one never sets in front of the TV set without a blanket anyway!!

I put a humidifier on my furnace once and turned it off,,,it made me sick,,,must have spawned too much mold in ducts.

I think you could burn ALOT less dollars of pellets than fuel oil,,,especially on a controlled burn stove like an earth stove or similiar. It will simmer forever on very little fuel,,,or wood compared to a open pot belly type with NO controll.

TRY shutting down your hole dampers as much as you can and SEE if it helps,,,less air,less burn and heat!!!!LESS fuel burned.

Unless VERY cold outside(those days are mostly behind us now),,,should have to ONLY stoak with wood twice a day at MOST,,,and once a day alot!!!

Anything over about 72 makes me physical sick also!! You can train your body to less heat,,can always wear a layer of clothes.

Thanks for the help. We have tried everything

from turning the damper down to even turning the

blower off. I think its just the fact that the

house is small so I don't have much control of

it! Right now its 62 degrees outside and I

havent used it all today, so I'm feeling better,

heat wise! Thanks again!

an earth stove works off of the heat in the roomopening the damper,,,you NEED a better stove,,,that hot just isnt healthy or good for you or your family!!! (open the door and heat up the outside,,,your neighbors will enjoy that!! lol )

PLUS humidty wise,you cant get enough in there to compensate for how much the heat takes out.

I used to pour 10 gallons a day thru two earth stoves and NOT be enough. Wood heat is DRY!!! I put LARGE roasters on top and poured into them,alot!!!

Yeah I hear you there... It came to a point in the dead of winter where I had all the windows open! LOL!!

Hopefully this spring I'll figure something out because this sure isn't working!

I have a kettle on the stove and everytime I turn around it's empty! What exactly is an earth stove? and how much do they run? Thanks again!

There are special stoves that burn the pellets only. Its my understanding you can't use pellets in a normal/regular wood stove.

Nor wood in a pellet stove, they are set up , and burn differently .The pellet stove has a hopper, loads from the top, and has an auger to gradually feed the pellets into the fire box.

Personally, I would look into it before buying pellets and using them. You wouldn't want problems, from using the wrong fuel in it.

On warmer days, you just might have to let the stove go out. Or just throw one stick of wood in it every few hours.

You may want to try a "cool mist humidifier", to help with the dry air. Its like an old fashioned vaporizer, that was used when people/ kids were sick. Only the vaporizer was more like a steam, that actually dried out the lungs.

You can get cheap, table top one, or bigger floor models. They really do make a big difference.

The water on top of the stove, boiling away, is like that drying steam. That high heat is damaging to more than the computer....your skin, eyes, nose and lungs.{ Do you have asthma/ or air hunger? Makes it much worse. The heat can make you lethargic. } Your furnature dosen't like it either.


I had enough of the mess, dust, and hassles of burning wood for 20 yrs and got rid of the wood stoves.

Actually for burning wood,,,the cats meow is to have a remote outside system,,,

that heats a water type solution,,that gets piped into the house into a similiar to an "A" coil

That heats the house,NO air drying because combustion is outside,no smoke,no ashes IN the house.

BUT very expensive and permanent, but also very efficient since you get warm many times on same fuel.

You get warm cutting wood,,,get warm hauling and stacking it,usually 3 times or so,,,get warm stoaking the stove,,,get warm taking out the ashes.

Plus the excercise factor!!

Google "earth stove" Its a square box design,flat top for cooking or evaping water. has fire brick inside,

very heavy,and a air duct on back with a thermostat type control AND a air tight seal on the door.

There are OTHER brands of "air tight" stoves. But google air tight and see what comes up. IF you open the door and there is NO gasket and controlled air induction,,,you dont want it.

I sold my 2 stoves on an auction in May. May as well give them away. So moral of story,stoves in season-very expensive. stoves OUT of season,,,better and cheaper!!

Chexk Craigs list,and local want ads, all summer,,,also check auctions. Auctions CAN be the cheapest place to buy these things IF 2 people dont have same idea.

Another way is to buy a corn/pellet stove. Buy corn from a local farmer. OR pellets from a store.

I know a lady that heats a whole house on less than 200 bushels a year. Used to be corn was cheap,,,and its getting cheaper now. IF you have enough land to grow your own,,,it costs ALOT to do,work and machinery,,,buying is cheaper!!

THEY have a hopper and auger system that feeds it as needed(plus controlled burn). One great feature is a stirrer,,, like the bottom of an old fashion stove pop corn popper!!

If you are too city for the corn,burn pellets instead,,,but shop for cost of fuel first!! Wood from trees is actually cheaper BUT you need a chain saw,trailers,and room to store. DONT burn green wood.

Cutting trees is dangerous and hard work!! Buying wood is expensive,but less so than ER stitches.

Yeah man, i haven't used mine in a couple of weeks because i got another heap Delivery the smoke was killing me. I am hoping not to have to use it until next winter i still have a lot of wood left for next year. I always crack a window right by the unit you have to have air flow in the house i felt like it was making me sick.
