Hello H8, take a look at this thread below:
It describes a few of the issues with burning bituminous in a stove in your house.
You CAN bur Bitum in your house, and with a lot of learning, you will get to a point where you don't get much smoke and soot in the room when you reload the stove with fresh coal.
The TLC 2000 is a nice stove with a big front 'window'. This glass will be solidly black within the first hour or two of burning Bitum coal, and you will be constantly trying to keep it clean.
My experience with burning bitum was in a boiler located in a outbuilding. If I went through the 'learning experiences' with a stove in my house, I would have had to repaint numerous times, and buy new furniture and carpeting at least once, probably twice.
What type, size and height chimney do you have?? If you have a really tall chimney that will have a very strong draft, this will help a lot with keeping the soot out of your house.
An almost-neighbor of yours is a forum member: ktm rider . He has an AHS multifuel boiler in his detached shop/garage. He pipes the hot water underground into the house to be used to warm his big house. He may chime in with his opinions of burning Bitum in your house.
If I were to get a stove for burning Bitum, I'd stay away from a glass door, and get a stove that has an extra-deep firebox, and an extra large ashpan. It must be hooked to a very good chimney.
Read all you can on the Bituminous coal threads. You will find people redesigning stoves, building new stoves from scratch, and figuring out how to best burn Bitum.
Hope this helps.
