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 know LL does an internal water coil but would this be better or worse.
**Broken Link(s) Removed**Across the front of my two Pokos that has a temp of just under 600F - I think I could run my now defunct spa (heater burned out), HW, perhaps some baseboard. The internal coil is appealing but what happens in periods on non use. Can any genius out there do the BTU maths.

Thx in advance.

DO a SEARCH on here on HOT WATER COIL or EXTERNAL HOT WATER COIL, been talked about and designed a few times on here. You can make one a lot cheaper. Any stove can have a COIL inside or outside. A lot of good ideas and photos.
They work good if you have a storage tank for Domestic, not real good for hot water baseboard, but in some case, could work.
