No cold spots in our house since it's run through our forced air system through the *civilized* thermostat, and our water is heated much better than it is in the summer with propane, not to mention we save
Sorry I'm not commenting on the C02 part of it, but why would I since we burn wood....
I think you missed the point?
I wasn’t referring to using wood as fuel. I was comparing a bubble counter and needle valve with a “classic” wood burning stove like a Franklin stove.
I agree that you can heat your home with a Franklin stove but as you point out a modern “controlled” heating system is a much better way to heat your home and water.
A CO2 controller does the same thing as a modern "controlled" heating system.
I agree that you can grow plants with a bubble counter and needle valve but if you want to control your system you need a CO2 controller.
