I think you are doing the right thing in wanting hands on experience from someone before buying.

Most combination furnaces I have seen are pretty awful. Designed by people who just do not understand combustion.

If you post pictures of the unit, especially of the fire box and grates you will get some opinions, also a web site if available. It's hard enough to design a unit for one fuel that is efficient, very much harder to design for three.

curious hou this unit functions on coal & heating oil primarily, the heating oil is for ability to go away from home for days ata time & have the heat on in the house when you get back. like to fire coal, the heat, tend the fire less freqyuently as compared to wood, & much cheaper fuel!! abot 200.00/t a tonne lasts me at least two months even with severe cold like this year. fuenaces looked at are yukons, logwoods & this newmack units.
