Hello, new to coal and forum

Hi all! :)

My husand and I just ordered our Hyfire II yesterday. :D We're from the East Stroudsburg area of the Poconos and we met Karen at the store in Drums. She was very helpful and patient and an all around nice person to speak with. We were sold on the Hyfire II partly because of her help and partly because of the heating capacity of this stove and its economical price. We are looking to heat about 2700 sq. feet, the basement and up two stories. For the last two seasons, we've been heating mostly with a wood stove supplemented with propane forced air when really cold. While the wood stove has cut our propane useage by two-thirds, I can't stand the fine ash covering everything in the house, the dirt in the basement where some of the wood is stored, feeding the stove at least twice a day, etc. and my poor husband cutting, splitting and hauling all that wood, in the snow, ice and freezing cold, downhill to our basement door. We are really looking forward to using our new Hyfire II for the next heating season (I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to cold weather, LOL). I'm sure we'll be on the forum with a hundred different questions which I know will have plenty of knowledgeable and experienced users for answers!

Just do a search for your questions, it probably has been answered. YOu should be happy with the Hyfire II, I have a Hyfire I (older model) and it does a pretty good job. Make sure if you want to vent it into your furnace, order the heat jacket.

Enjoy! Anything we can do to help you out, just ask....

Welcome to a great forum.
I have a Hyfire II and have had it for six heating seasons, as of today, I have saved $4800.00 over natural gas. We heat a 150 year old farmhouse, the stove being in the basement. As mentioned, I would definitely install the jacket. I sent Karen a picture of mine installed and she was going to post it at the store. Great stove and Jerry is the best if on the rare chance you have a problem.

Thanks for the welcome, guys. Glad to hear that people are happy with their Hyfires. If it can do a good job heating a 150 year old farmhouse, a 5 year old house and the Pocono winter should be no challenge for it!

But of course, Tom, we will definitely post pics, but it's going to be awhile since we won't pick up the stove until the middle to end of summer! :)

Right now we figured we'd go thru the forum for info on things like the best way to build a coal bin and stuff like that so we'll be all ready when its time to use the stove.
