How much coal have you used so far?

PostBy: leowis1 On: Wed Jan 13, 2010 9:19 pm

I have a 520 stoker. I've used probably 4 tons so far. My daytime t-stat is set at 67. Night time is 64. I fired up the boiler on Oct. 15. I have an old victorian built in 1884 with no insulation. Please let me know how you guys are doing?

Av8r,
That's about right. I burn 40 lbs and heat about twice the area.

1880 triple bricktorian. Heating basement with wood only but heating 2nd floor with wood and coal used 3/4 ton so far.
This probably does not count since I burn both wood and coal.
Burn wood all day then coal overnight. In morning dump wood onto hot coal coals. At night dump coal on top of wood coals.

About 2 tons. Heating 2200 sq. ft. well insulated split level with most windows argon filled double pane glass. I re-plumbed my two boilers into a true primary secondary piping system last summer. This eliminated my thermal siphoning heat loss problem. It's made a significant reduction in my coal consumption.

Heating about 2500 sq. ft. since Sept. 20th. Used about 120 50# bags or 3 ton. Hope to reduce that next year by installing recirc loop and maybe a 40 gal. storage tank in the recirc loop. Using about 65#'s a day in Jan. and it has been cold.
