The money I would have spent on propane to heat my house for the winter paid for the boiler and I have been spending about 1/6 the cost of the propane on coal. The best part is the house is nice and toasty all winter long. Bonus this year, as cool as the spring has been with all the rain, it has allowed me the enjoyment of continuing to run my coal boiler. At this rate I may be able to run it into July.
Using your boiler for heat in July is a mixed blessing, at best!
My coal stove also paid for itself, and then some, in its first Winter of use. Amazing, isn't it?
