Anyone heard about any new legislation that could ban the use of coal for home heat around the Fairbanks North Star Boreau? I heard
from my uncle that they had just put something in to be voted on in the fall, but I couldn't find any backup

Is this what he was talking about?

"The fines, which kick in this fall, include $30 penalties for burning fuels such as tires, wet wood and animal carcasses."

No that wasn't it. I remember that though. Big outdoor boiler less than a hundred feet from a major highway. This sub-bit really has an odor to it. But quite frankly, I kind of enjoy the smell. In fact, I find certain wood fires to be more obtrusive.

I got the same rumor from my son in North Pole

so I am working on a hook up to ship my used pellet boiler to him because pellet stoves are allegedly exempt.
When you turn your boiler on -Does it return the favor?
I have finally lost my mind. Don't bother to return it. It wasn't working properly anyway!

I would swing by the Woodway stove shop on college road for the current local situation.
Last time I was in there they had one Harman coal stove and he said he could not sell it to anyone in the Faribanks area, whatever that is.
I also remember that somone else in town was the new Harman Dealer.
This is a link to the currrent Harman stove dealer http://www.wdaalaska.com/
He should know.
If it was as easy as burning oil, everybody would be burning coal.
Forum reality, If you ask wheres a good steak house? You will be informed that what you really want is pork chops.
Enjoy it for what it is worth.
