A fundamental issue that I would like to make explicit:
How many hours per day do you, the users of RMHs, actually fire up
your stoves in order to maintain the comfort zone?
Multiple burning sessions or just one long one?

It would be great to gather some numbers from you all and see if there is some general
pattern. Additional information about climate, latitude, c.q. altitude would help, too.

What I think would be a crucial question unanswered.

Last winter I would burn mine for about 4-5 hours a day when I got home from work. I was also using it to heat most of my big in-efficient house. I went through about one and a half to two cord. We didn't have very much mass on the stove last year either. I live in Maine and burn wood about six months of the year.
