So I decided to make transition from wood to coal.
Looked at quite a few models. Took awhile to decide between the traditional stove w/optional jacket and a furnace.

Decided to take a ride to berwick, Pennsylvania and check out the lesiure line plant. Can't remember who exactly walked me through the plant but he was beyond helpful in pointing me in the right direction.

I decided to go with the ak110 as a primary source of heat in my 2200 sq ft home. Hookup went smooth , tied into central air duct. The coal-trol (thermostat) made startup easy. Within 30 minutes the difference it made in the house was amazing.

Im no salesman but if your looking for a primary source of heat thats cheap and easy id recommend checking out Lesiure Line Ak110. Thanks for all the help and heat guys

Glad it's working out for you.
It will be even more impressive when the weather gets really cold.

Ditto on my install and I agree it's great. How have you engineered your cold air return.

Quite the fire you have there!!! Is that probe hanging down for measuring heat? I know you haven't had the stove long but, how is everything going so far? Oliver

Hello how is the Ak110 working for you? I recently installed one in my new house. I am not living in it yet but I fired up the furnace a few days ago to keep it warm for my builder. I noticed that I had a lot of wasted coal so I moved the feed rate to a minimum of 25 from 40. Could you let me know what your settings are for everything? I the house is also 2200 SQ I am new to coal and want to make sure it is being as efficient as possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks!

might want to send him a PM ... of course, he only made ONE post over 1 yr ago and has not visited since... so I don't think you'll hear anything from him

recommend you start your own thread

Update on AK110

Still working as good as the day I fired it up.
Burnt 4 and a 1/4 ton last winter , which seemed like it would never end.

Sorry guys , I had every intention of being active on forum , working on the road all kinds of crazy hours has limited me from doing so. Couldn't believe it's been a year already.

4.25 ton last year? That's really a low amt for last year for a 2200 sq ft house. Have a second heat source operating?

Only source of heat is the furnace. Unless you count the electric fireplace , but that's just for decoration.
Burnt a ton of buckwheat during colder weather , then stuck with rice.

I'm loving the ak 110 but I just am not sure if its burning as efficient as it's suppose to. I have used about 12 bags since I first fired it up last sunday. I set the temp to 60deg cause my house isn't done being built yet and the crew would freeze with out it. Is this right?
