I grew up in a home where we burnt a lot of wood for heat, mostly scraps from a boat building shop. I still remember unloading the trailer, cutting the larger pieces, packing and stacking, feeding the barrel stove and cleaning out the ashes.
When I was in my thirties I worked with a man that heated his home with wood. He was telling me about getting a logging truck load, cutting it to length, splitting it, stacking it, packing it along with firing the stove and cleaning the ashes. I told him, "Bert, when I get cold I walk across the room and push the up button on my thermostat."
I'm in my late fifties now and I still just push the up button on the thermostat when I get cold although it is a different thermostat and in a different house.
I guess I don't really have an answer for you.
