Channing 3 with coal trol

Can someone give me the pros and cons on a Coal trol for the Channing. We're heating a 2000 sq. ft. 2 story home.
So far after 3 years the stove has performed very good. I would like to have more control and a constant temp. inside. Thanks in advance for your input. Also do they have a wireless thermostat? thanks ken

Do a search in this forum for CHANNING, there are several threads concerning the CoalTrol and these stoves..

If you read thru the threads in this CoalTrol section, you can see how well the CoalTrol Works on ANY stove.

New coal trol up and running

I have one on My Channing +/- .5* of the setpoint all the time. Much better than the Alaska controls.

Hi Ken,

As WNY said, the Coal-trol does work on the channing and several people use them on them as well as other Alaska stoves. Also, unfortunately, there is not a wireless thermostat option. It's on the wish list we're working on, but no idea when it might become available.

I have been running a basic for 4 years now on my Channing, Its hands off automatic, I would hate to go back to the reostat control.
