Keystoker KA-6 Information

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.

Has anyone installed a ka-6 or similar product in a house that has forced hot air and central ac. I would also like to get my hot water from this unit instead of using propane. I am now using oil to heat my home, but what to switch before next fall. Does anyone have any suggestions about this product or any others? I was told that I can have a heat exchanger and circulating pump installed to accomplish my goal of heating with coal.
