It sounds like you are using that much coal because you are heating the basement which is transfering your heat to the ground and not to the house. I can tell you at this rate you will need more coal. Probably twice as much as you have. I have a 2000sqft home built in 1995 that has good insulation but I do have a lot of big windows and my stove is in my dining room and I burned 4 ton last year keeping my house at 73. You need to insulate that basement and create a return air path to the stove.

Last year on some of the coldest days of the year (-5) I used 85 pounds of coal. So if you are using #100 now your stove is not going to keep up and your house will be colder than 65 when the weather gets cold.
