Aquastat Question

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.

The Price for # 2 fuel oil down here today is 3.14.9 a gal coal would have to be 550.00 a ton to compare to that price for oil I don't think you will ever have to worry that oil will be cheaper then coal again
Even for the people on here that are paying 250.00 a ton Oil would have to be 1.40 a gal to make it cheaper
Even at 350.00 a ton for coal Oil would have to be 2.00 a Gal
Even if Oil made it to 2.75 a gal coal would still have to 480.00 a ton to compare to oil
I have to worries about Oil ever being cheaper then Anthracite coal again
Sorry for going way off the Topic

Fuel oil would have to be .95 cents to compare to coal at 170.00 a ton
Corn 50lbs would have to be 2.30 to compare to coal at 170.00 a ton
Wood Pellets would have to 115.00 a ton to compare to coal at 170.00 a ton
Firewood Per cord would have to be 125.00 to compare to coal at 170.00 a ton
propane per Gallon would have to be .70 cents to compare to coal at 170.00 a ton
Natural Gas would have to be .75 cents per therm to compare to coal at 170.00 a ton
Electricity per KWH would have to be 3.00 to compare to coal at 170.00 a ton
