let the data begin...

1st, my "FAR RAD" datalogger is a bit under the weather .. so don't believe what you see.

2nd .. each thin vertical line is 15min increment. beginning on 11/16 each thick vertical is 1hr increment.

3rd .. I do not have oil consumption data here .. I'm still figuring out the best firing rate .. today I reset to factory defaults on the nozzle. Since Friday(11/12?) I've burned 16.04gal. Most of the consumption was due to testing and tuning the fire.

4th I do not have Heating Degree Day Data here .. I will figure out how to add it somehow.

5th I've played around a bit with the "threshold temperature" which denotes "ON" state, currently:



 MAIN END>150 and


6th my MAIN END temperature probe is not under insulation as my HEADER probe is. Hence, my main end seems to "shut-off" early. But I think what's most important is when things go "ON" rather than "OFF" (at least right now)

7th these samples were every 30s .. I've readjusted moving forward, the samples to be every 60s.

I'm sure this is a work in progress, and as I said, I've been tinkering alot as this data was being collected so draw no conclusion from the data in this post .. as the season sets in, I will be tinkering less and learning more.
