Where to Purchase a Stoker Furnace in New England?

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 concur. I recommend either an EFM DF-520; or, an AHS/AA S260 if you plan on heating a large home and providing DHW for a family. Plus the EFM and AHS/AA have augers to load coal automatically. When heating a large home, you'll quickly get tired of slinging coal by hand...

I will be a new coal burner soon. I recently purchased a refurbished EFM 520 Highboy, from member Pacowy (Mike) and he has helped me immensely with all my questions (too many to count). I would highly recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for a coal stoker system because he is there even after the sale, to help and make sure everything is right. Whistlenut also gave me a lot of professional insight on my project and will be installing my system soon. Still burning oil for now but soon coal only!!!

Steve, I installed a Highboy in my Dad's home. They are a very nice boiler, and well suited for domestic hot water production with a tankless coil. Let us know when you have it fired up.

I wanted to give you a suggestion on where to buy coal. I have been getting my coal from Northeast Coal in Pelham NH for about 25 years. Romeo is a great guy and reasonable, with top quality coal.

Check out Complete Heat in Nashua. I bought my Keystoker from them a few years ago. They were very helpful.

Good luck.

Thanks again for all the suggestions and help. In addition to the post, many of you sent me PM's & emails that were very helpful. After much research and many converstaions, I have decided to go with the Leisure Line 220. Hopefully it'll be up and running before the 1st of the year!

Can't wait to finally have a warm house and no propane bills!
