Rheostat Dimmer Switch for Power Vent

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.

Anyone of our dealers can get one. If you need it quick you can use a fan dimmer from hardware store.

I installed a ceiling fan speed control switch last season on my boiler and the switch failed after a few months. The cheaply made switch couldn't handle the amperage of the motor I was controlling. This season I purchased the following rheostat designed for hand routers. It is working well and is reasonably priced.
