Cold and Damp, One More Time!

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.

56 in the living room today. Had to get in the car and go out and buy some burn bags to lite off the Econo 1. My bride of 42 years was cold. Can't have that if I want to see another year!
