Clothes Dryer {Coal Fired}

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.

Do not worry, lower temperature means higher count and that means more chance to hit it on the mark.
There is a reason for everything, lol.

If it’s humid and cold outside, your clothes might dry only very slowly or not at all. That would be an ideal situation to use an indoor drying rack to take advantage of the heat inside your house.

Oh OK. So, 20 degrees and 90% humidity might not work very well then. Bummer.

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice when she's ten feet tall

I have finally lost my mind. Don't bother to return it. It wasn't working properly anyway!

"Normal" RH for Philly is 65% during January, with a temperature of 34degf.

49RH out in Harrisburg, so the further from the coast, the better your results will be.

Well it has been done or at least experimented with in an even more eco friendly way by using solar heat.
See the attached website link. http://www.builditsolar.com/Experimental/AtticToD ... oDryer.htm

If someone earlier mentioned this site before then my excuses.
