Hearth Model Door/Ash Pan Cover

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.

Here's a thought. The Hearth Model does not completely hide most fireplace openings. There is a large gap below the feeder blower motor. I did not mount my Coal-Trol on the hopper as it is kinda ugly. Instead I placed it a couple inches back from the fireplace face brick and fed the feeder blower & feed mechinism power cords thru a tie down that I fastened to the bottom left rear corner of the hopper box. I then used the ash pan /door cover as a screen that covers the opening in the fireplace below the Hearth model hopper.

So now my fireplace opening is pretty much totaly coverd except for about 1-1/4 inch on either side of Heath Model.

Now for my suggestion. Why not paint the door / ash pan cover to match the Hearth stoves and suggest that it is also be used as a screen to hide the fireplace hole below the feeder mechanism. I'm going to get some Stove Bright black paint and paint mine ASAP. It will look great .
