Cap'n Michael - I live in Pittsburgh and checked out this question last year - my natural gas boiler needs replaced and I am going to go with coal. DEP said no problems, just watch out for the neighbors. Allegheny County Health department said no regulation against, and, by the way, you are the third person who has called us about that in the past year. No one of the several I spoke to in the city knew anything about wether or not coal is allowed, and my quick read of the city code said nothing about it. Could you please quote me chapter and verse about the ordinance? I don't want to make an expensive purchase in vain.

:woot: You can still burn soft coal until our band new"president" with his left of left blind eyed approach to cherry plum heaven ideals and handouts for one and all gets to Washington.

Meanwhile stand in line to use the "wall" :bang:

Kinda harsh on the kimmel coal. I have been burning it for a couple of months now, no problems and big heat. My customers
( I am selling it too) are very pleased and noticed a 10% increase in heat output over the previous brand burned. Did we just
get lucky? Maybe. My guess is that burning Anthracite is different than bit and will take some getting used to. ;)

Don't know chapter and verse only an old timer who told me mayer David L lawrence put him and his coal delivery sevice out of biz with a ban on coal burning in the city way back in the day. You can still burn anthrcite anywhere because of its smoke free stack.
