You guys already burning 24/7 are crazy! CRAZY I TELL YOU!

I had my vigilant burning this past weekend and I had to let her go out...It was 76* in my house with windows open!!! Couldnt sleep that night...

My thermostat (for the forced hot water oil burner) has been set at 65* for a month now and my house hasnt dropped below 67* on our warmer days when the sun hits the house its been 71*

I think i like this "temperate climate" we are experiencing this year...just cold enough for a sweater AND NO SNOW!!!! :D

Oh yeah...I noticed a substantial drop in price of bagged kimmels at East Coast Lumber in Hampstead anyone else see a price drop.

was $9.09 a bag now its $7.87 a bag (pea or nut) :?

funny thing is, is that its actually cheaper for me to buy it by the bag than to have a ton delivered to my house. I live close enough and im at the store all the time so i just buy a few bags every time i go in there if i need it

havent needed it because my house stays warm enough (see post above)

Checking in from Windham. Been burning the black gold since late Oct. this year. I've been purchasing Reading nut by the ton from Dodge Grain in Salem. About $295.00. If anybody knows a better price, would be happy to hear about it.

Got home last night and my wife was running around barefoot. She said that at 78 degrees she is in her comfort zone. Had my Mark III at 1/4 turn with stove size coal . I was amazed that I was able to keep a good draft with it being 65 degrees outside and the stove almost completely shut down.

I'll bet they did the same thing that a teenage cashier did at my former coal dealer: Kimmels comes in pallets of 2,500lbs ..... she thought a pallet was a ton. :funny: That calculation made the price jump up pretty high! :lol:

Found out a little bit about the price change...they changed from Kimmels to Reading...

Got to say that I like the Kimmels woven bags a little better than the plastic bags that Reading comes in...

Been burning the reading nut for the past 4 days...

Danbury, here...

Been burning for a few years now, we have an Ashley wood/coal stove and used to burn wood exclusively until I ran short one year and decided to give coal a try.

I have quite a bit stored up now -I answered an ad for free coal in the basement of a church in Dorchester, MA last year and ended up cleaning out almost the entire contents of their coal room. it took most of a year on Sundays when our schedules were clear and the weather was good, but I hauled home around 34 tons of Stove coal, at about 2,400 pounds per trip. That's all I could carry between my S-10 pickup and utility trailer.

We've had a fire burning continuously since September. On the warmer days, I'd go 36 hours between tending to the stove, and still have plenty of fire left. Cooler days, I'd stoke it once a day and during a cold snap, twice a day. Of course, with the subzero weather we've had, I've been keeping it stuffed. We don't have any backup heat, the Ashley is our sole source (other than a little propane heater in the upstairs bathroom).

There's no fuel like an old fuel...
