Hey just a quick update on life with the Harman Magnum
So far over the last few weeks we have seen outdoor temp. swings from a high of 50 to a low of 11 keeping track with a digital Min/Max indoor /outdoor thermometer from the hardware store the inside temp ranged from a low of 71 (I attribute this to the day I carried in a car load of groceries and left the door open ) to a high of 77 on a thermostat setting of 75 .
Needless to say I am very pleased with the stoves performance and The Honeywell Round HEAT only thermostat once I figured out the dip switches on the back and how they work best with the coal stove .
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.
