DHW Coil Placement in Pocono

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.

Quick question - saw a post in the archive that a DHW coil in a Leisure Line Pocono should be 6-8" above the fire.

Does anyone know at what height Jerry (LL) drills the coil holes at the factory? That will ease my guessing. THanks.

Yes, 6" to 8" is fine.

Thanks.

Jerry, is that 6-8 above the typical flame or the coal bed? Would you expect similiar effectiveness if it was plumbed vertically like in TdiDave's pics above?
