Rwalker welcome,what temp are you running your stove, how big of a area are you heating,and how much coal are you using?
Take care Keepaeyeonit
No idea what temp I am running. The stove connects to a "Dial-a-temp" in the wall which I turn to adjust the fans to barely blow or go full speed. Today the wife had the windows open and the fan on the lowest setting and when I got home from work it was 86 in the great room and 80 down the hall. This is after 12 hour of burning! I put a 5 gallon bucket in each fill-up, coal size is
or a bit smaller.
Area heating is about 2500 square feet. Our great room is a cethedral ceiling that is about 25' high that opens into the dining room and kitchen. Then a hallway that leads down to the master bedroom. There are also open steps that lead up to the upstairs bedrooms that you can see the great room from, so it is open. The upstairs is 90+ and the kids keep their bed room doors closed at night!
I use an electric heater in the finished basement to keep it at around 55 since we dont currently use it. Eventually when the kids are teens, that area will be heated as well as we have a fireplace down there too.

That time schedule is good Rw--I also tend every 12 hrs--consistency my friend, consistency.
Only a mile with the boy?? He have an off night?
I know that'd kill me.
Yeah, he is only 8 so we are adding speed and distance each time he runs. He is up to 4.2 mph. I want him at 8 minute miles for 3 when football season starts next year. He is already deadlifting 115 for 3 sets of 10 and weighs around 85 pounds, so he is a little beast. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=us3k81cAjio
He jumps to the 9-10 league next year so we are going to be ready to knock some heads!
