New to the site, 1 month coal burner. Love the site and the heat. My father had been trying to convert me for years. I installed his old Alaska Stoker 1 around Thanksgiving in the basement of our old Victorian, first time in 20 years we've had warm floors. My question is has anyone out there burned coal in a DuoMatic Olsen wood/coal/oil combination furnace? I had burned wood in this furnace for probably 15 years and removed it from my ex-wife's house when she converted to gas. I am renovating an old farm house in upstate NY, Bainbridge, and would like to try to hand fire this furnace with coal this time. I am already not missing the months of cutting, hauling, splitting, stacking, chimney cleaning and worrying that comes as the "wood burning package".
Thanks again for the great advice that comes from this site. Sorry no info, still working on the profile.
