        Most homes are constant volume. Duh!
        Heating air expands the air! Duh2!
        When home air gets hot and expands - where does the expanded air go?
        Outside? That's not too smart. Duh3!
        When home air cools and contracts,what fills the air void? Outside
        air!
        That's not too smart. Duh4!

        With a set point HVAC control system, how many times per day does the
        hot air expand and the cold air contract? Does anyone know?
        Absolutely.
        Every time the HVAC heat actuates, the hot air expands to the outside.
        Every time the HVAC A/C cooler actuates, the air void is filled with
        outside air.
        How many times per day does the HVAC actuate?
        Not many during moderate temperatures so the utility bill is low
        except for the "averaging" of the annual bill where no one will
        notice.
        Multiple HVAC actuations occur during inclement cold or hot ambient
        temperatures so the utility bill is high but the utility bill is
        averages so no one takes notice.

        A corn stove has analog control rather than set point.
        The corn stove temperature remains steady.
        The room air does not repeatedly heat and cool with a corn stove.
        The room air is not constantly being pushed outside as it expands and
        constantly being pulled inside from the outdise as the room air cools.

        The corn stove controls room RH and room temperature at a steady
        pace. Room air stays in the room. Room air is not constantly being
        pushed outside and pulled back inside several time each day as the
        HVAS system actuates and deactivates.

        Water holds more energy than air. How does relative humidity (RH)
        affect the utility bill?
        No humidifier is constantly adding water with a properly operated
        corn stove.
        No de-humidifier is constantly removing water with a properly
        operated corn stove.
        The heat loss and gain to the outside with a corn stove is low RH
        air. The heat loss outside from corn stove heat is low energy air
        with low water content low RH air. At least the heat loss to the
        outside is not charged with high energy RH moisture from inside the
        room.
