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.

Does he sell heating oil? If you want to get the most from your coal, that is what the baro needs to be tuned to.
Nothing is impossible for people who don't have to do it themselves.
