Amazed With Coal-Trol on Alaska 140 Dual Paddle

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.

Recently replaced the rheostat controls with a coal trol on my alaska 140 dual paddle furnace. Only one thing to say ABSOLUTELY AMAZING !!!!!!! Using less coal, keeps a 2500 sq ft 1830's farm house within 1 degree of the set temp, which is a toaty 72.

My settings are min 8 max 35. I run 1 stoker down to about 15 degrees, in the cold I am using about 100 pounds a day. We had a cold spell of -4 to 10 degrees a while back ate about 160 pounds a day with both burners going. I have tried it both ways in 30 degree weather and definatly uses more coal with both stokers going.
