Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

Going out for firewood, the lows supposed to be 45 tonight and it's chilly in here, so coal burning is off for the next week. Before we know it, it will be snowing and the stoves will be going full bore.
