During the recent cold snap, I burned 50#/day. My normal winter rate has been around 30 #/day. Even running the stove hard, my furnace had to help keep the house warm when it was so cold outside. I like my stove, but it is a little undersized given the poor insulation of our house - it was originally built as a cottage. We plan to renovate in a few years, so improved insulation should allow the stove to better fit our heating load.
With some colder temps due this week, I decided to experiment with some Stove size coal. I usually burn Nut, and tried Pea last March. I had some empty Kimmels bags, so went to Androess Hardware in Charlestown, RI and bagged 300# for myself. A bit more expensive than my regular supply, equivalent to 310 $/ton. Interested to compare the heat output from the Stove size coal.

Since oct 29, I have burned approximately three tons of coal in my ka-6. The house is nice and toasty at 72 degrees. Would not want to heat with wood as I see my freinds going to load up every 3-4 hours. Best investment I ever made was this coal boiler,weather man says -15 to -20 degrees tonight!! So I'm just sitting back enjoying the heat inside the house!!!

I went out yesterday and checked. I have enough of my third ton left to last me maybe another week or two. Gotta get more.

Only a few more hours and it'll be my l'il wiggly's birthday.

I've burned about a ton and a half since mid November keeps the house at a balmy 63* consistently. Going to make some changes to hopefully improve the heat in the house overall.
