Wish we would have had a heat pump installed in 2021. We had a heat pump from the 1990's and it never worked well and just ate up electric so when we had the system replaced we just went with a a/c only unit. the heat pump we had no longer worked, leaked all the r22 out in a few hours. Coal was around 220 a ton delivered two years ago. Glad we kept the oil furnace. Which reminds me i need to fill my jugs and add about 40 gallons to the tank.
I am not a fan of heat pumps but we finally replaced our 1992 model with a middle of the road Trane and all I can say is wow! The new one is a 100 times better then the old one for sure, it actually heats down to a lower temperature without the heating element and cools better I just hope I get the same 30 years of trouble free service from the new one as we did from the old🤣.
When the temperature drops we all love slow steady radiant heat of coal!😁

I finally picked up 2150# of Lehigh nut yesterday for the tune of $399.00/ton😯 not much more than last year but holy cow I wish it would come down a bit so I can fill our bin.

Well I haven't been around here much in quite awhile, so here goes.
Coal here was $470 ton bagged, so at 75% eff. that's $2506.67 per million btu,
I just got oil delivered today 680 gallons at $3.70 gallon, so at 75% eff. that's $3557.09 per million,
the same truck had #1 or kerosene on it at $5.00 per gallon for 100 gallon delivery, works out to $4115.23 at 90% eff,
when I paid my last electric bill this week it was $0.20 per KWH my mini splits at 287% above 25F or $2042.39 per million on warmer days.
It would make sense to use the mini-splits during the day and the coal on colder nights and days, but that's not going to happen. Also my wife likes it much warmer in the winter then in the summer so keeping the main house at 72-76F so with a bag a day keeping the main part of the house comfortable at about $9.50 a bag I guess that's what we will do this year.

Drove up to superior today, got just over 3000lbs for $310. Their bulk price is still $200 a ton. I mixed pea and nut in the bed with the majority being nut. They load their coal wet and I don’t have any issues with fines.

Wet with water, or something else?

I like when my coal comes in the house wet. It keeps the dust down. The water steams off in about a minute.

Looks like PelletsDirect.com is having a sale over here in MA. $469.90 a ton.

I'm having an internal battle in my brain over this. It kills me to spend $200 a ton more than 4 years ago. But, I have a feeling as time goes on I'll be begging for $500 a ton again ...

Will cost me OVER $2,900 after delivery for 6 tons. :x :no1:

How's the quality of that $469.90 a ton brand? I have people in your neck of the woods using $600 a ton brand and are convinced it is superior quality and you get what you pay for. I say give some cheaper brands a try and see what you think.

It's Blaschak coal. Been excellent quality for the past 15 years for me. Price doesn't dictate quality when it comes to coal. Prices vary wildly for the same exact stuff all over the state and beyond.

My mistake, I thought you were talking about wood pellets.
