A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

I'm in the process of installing my DVC 500 and I'm wondering if anyone out there can post some pictures of what you did with the termination pipe on the exterior of the house> I have siding so I'm not sure if should cut a clearance hole for the SS flange into the siding or place the flange over the siding and the caulk the hell out of it.

I went over top of the siding with my terminator, then chaulked it, then matching paint. It came out looking good.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
