Re: water running down walls in wood burning furnace

I run a Heatmaster SS and have played with the temp setting quite a bit trying to find a happy medium where it does not cycle my blower as much, yet does not burn a ton of wood maintaining a high water temp, and boil or steam off water. I have found that on mine approx 150 on, and 160 off seems to work well, although I do drop that by 10 degrees in warmer weather. I also learned the hard way to never burn green wood (although I do toss a few small sticks in one at a time if they get in the way, but normall I only cut dead wood. Other than that, this thing burns anything I toss into it including full bags of trash. When I bought my furnace I heard the stories of only filling it once a day, even one even less. I think those tales are just that, as I have never been able to only fill once a day unless it is a low temp around 45 or 50 degrees. Then again, I heat my residential water as well via two heat exchangers in series with the heat exchanger mounted inside my furnace (one side arm and one plate "pre heating" the incoming water to the gas water heater which is turned off. I am likely gettting off topic, but I'd turn the temp up to 150 or 160. I think it will eliminate the condensation, and be more efficient as well.
