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.

It's in the mid seventies during the day for the next few days so I took the opportunity to play with the settings on my 520. I want to see how low I could go and keep a fire going. I went to two teeth 3 1/2 air and 1 minute timer every 15 minutes (intermatic timer). It went out this evening. Tomorrow I'll relight it and try 2 teeth and 2 minutes per half hour. I hate when science projects go awry. :)
