Thanks JC sure sounds like it's made from all the right stuff .
Reagarding movies I got to agree with ya there but I would love to see a movie about the rise of coal in the nation and Reading would be a big player in that pic.
I'm sure being from around here you still hear stories about the Reading Coal & Iron Police . Heck I Know some old timers around here that still have more fear of them than the State'ies
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.
