Re: Yurt Dome Insulation Install and Condensation

That indeed must be frustrating for you. How much frost are we talkin about? Right now it's -16C and it's 4pm.......the dome has more than half cleared off of frost. By sunset it'll be mostly clear...

Re: Yurt Dome Insulation Install and Condensation

Re: Yurt Dome Insulation Install and Condensation

Free firewood is a good thing! It doesn't bother me 10-12 cords of wood, it's carbon neutral. The propane bill is pretty small, heat exchanger steals heat from 60gal hot water tank. It's...

Re: Yurt Dome Insulation Install and Condensation

Well it's warmed up to -21C & frost has cleared off the dome & most of the snow has gone off the dome as well. Our French doors that were frosted right over are pretty much cleared up as well as the...

Re: Yurt Dome Insulation Install and Condensation

Last night down to -41. Yurt still warm but things have frosted up a bit. Not surprising! I'm not bothered, windows will clear up in a few days & indoor relative humidity is only 45%. I'm not gonna...

Re: Yurt Dome Insulation Install and Condensation

I should mention as well that I do very little stove top boiling. A boiling/simmering pot can easily be set in the oven to cook. Ovens on a wood cookstove are vented to the chimney so there goes the...

Re: Yurt Dome Insulation Install and Condensation

Re: Putting in a Gas Range/Oven

I'll be thrifty on my propane stove for morning coffee & summer cooking but I'm splurging big time on my wood stove for the yurt. It'll be primary heat source for enduring harsh Alberta winters,...

Re: Putting in a Gas Range/Oven

There are also propane stoves made by Unique (I think) that have battery (9volt) ignition systems or the option of electronic ignitions that have a sparker & not a glow bar. Their power consumption...
