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.

Does anyone use a Harman SF-3500-A and if he or she does could I get some remarks on the performance and a comment on the brochure on how it says it can go from being a wood burner to a coal burner in one easy switch. My fathers got one of these and he is gonna buy some coal for it, he's been burning wood for the past 9 years in it. and I want make sure I know something about this unit before I go over there and explain to him about not messing with it when he tries to get the coal going. thanks .
