Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

Seem to me it would depend on the workmanship of the retrofit. I cant speak personally for the quality of the GJ but an efm stoker is a beautiful thing.
