I have a wood stove add on to my fuel oil furnace. I think I might need to
adjust the limit and control settings because the house is not keeping warm even
though a very good fire is built and being maintained. What is the
recommendation to set the limit and control setting when extremely cold outside.
I also want it to be safe.
Since there's not a lot of activity on the ng this afternoon, I'll give
it a stab.
Is your wood stove big enough to give enough heat in this weather? How
big is your house, how many btu the furnace? How cold out is it?

I don't know much about this but I thought limit switches were all about
safety and shouldn't be changed.
That still leaves, iiuc, two more settings, but it seems like other
things should be looked at first.

all the time, or does it stop somehow even though the air at the
thermostat hasn't reached the thermostat's temperature setting.?
Basic crucial information is missing about your setup.
Does the wood stove have an air feed from the outside? Or is it sucking all
the warm air out of the rest your house?
How is the warm air from the wood stove supposed to get to the rest of the
Where is the thermostat located in relation to the wood stove?
