My Trip to PA, Stove Country

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.

Stove/Furnace Make: Home made boiler

We had a great time coming to PA. It was good to see some hills. We are at 6ft elv where I live in MD. All the leaves were gone but we did see orange as we drove. Hunters not far from the PA turnpike. I thought it was strange they let hunters pull off and park along side the turnpike. In MD you would be towed in less then an hour. Coalstoker said you all shot up all your deer. Whats up with that?

Any how we visited a few stove places. We found Alaska stoves to be of high quality. We have purchased five stoves and we are now dealers in MD. Our stoves might be ready next week. My family and I are going on a cruise out of FL on thursday. We are driving down tuesday. We had a warm spell here. Today it was in the 50's. No need to burn coal but I am sure it will be soon. We have sold two stoves so far and me and my buddy have each bought one. We are exicited to get them in and going. So we can save on running those heat pumps.

Cool site. I wish I would have known about this site before I made my wood boiler. I will try to convert it to coal. I am thinking already about designing a coal boiler similar to my wood boiler but smaller. Using some of my ideas as well as some of the ways these new coal stoves work. It would be cool to be able to build a 150,000btu coal boiler for under $2000. I have some ideas. I will get my Alaska stove in and let every one know how it is going. While designing my wood boiler I spoke with people in ten different states in the US and several experts from Russia. Can I put this link on my web site as a reference?
