I fired mine up today.  It's radiant heat in the floor so thermostat is set for 59F.  It feels warmer than that but not enough to sweat.

Had mine on for a couple of weeks now. Saying that I run a de-humidifier all the time, it feels so much warmer when it's not damp plus it keeps the rust away.

Well that's a bummer Dave. What's the issue with it?

Thermocouple is too close to the burner I think...I moved it down, but the threaded end has been worn out from changing it a dozen times over the years....

I think the threaded well is replaceable, ....but its cold and it's running right now so I'll leave it be
