1. Thanks for the tip on who to call. I found Lutz's...and they are only 9 miles from me.
2. Am I understanding you right? Do you have them deliver bags and you keep bagged coal in the bins that you built outside and in your basement? Do you burn 12 tons of coal a year???
At this point, being a rookie, and not completely sure I'll be able to figure all of this out. I'm leaning toward paying a little extra for the bagged coal (still likely 1/2 to 1/3 of electric heating costs). I'm not handy, so the thought of building a bin stresses me, and I don't have a lot of time here...it's getting cold and my wife had to turn the electric heat on this morning to take the chill out of the air for my 5 year old.
I have room in my basement near my stove to get/stack 4 tons of coal. I'm assuming they deliver it on pallets? I'd just have to recruit some strong backs to help me move it downstairs. Do you then carry the bags to the stove and scoop out of them, or do you have some kind of a bin near your stove that you empty them into to shovel from?
You guys are helping to save years of my life here...THANKS
