Finally Burning Coal

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.

That bucket a day is a sweetheart! I'm sure you're luvin' that!

The AA.... tis a beast. It will serve you well as long as you need that much heat. They got legs & love to run. If you don't need that many BTU's you might find it's not as efficient as hoped. But, if you need that many BTU's, it is high on the list for efficiency & you'll be a happy camper.
