1600 M

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.

I have a 1600 m and am trying anthracite stove coal this year . I have been burning wood the last 5 years,but its seems to use too much wood. IT either overheats my home,or cloggs my chimney . my house is a 1600 sq ft farmhouse . I believe the unit is oversized a bit,especially as I begain to insulate my home. my thought was to burn coal and just damper it back as needed. anyone have a 1600? ANY THOUGHTS?

what part of the country do you live in? the local weather tends to impact coal usage as well as the individual house.
I drive a VW TDI, heat my home & workshop with two coal stokers and have two vintage JD diesel tractors....

Why if you haven't burned coal yet are you starting out with stove coal and not nut, nut will be more forgiving and you can burn a lower fire with nut. :?
This is only my two cents
and sometimes it is not worth that
