With a large modern catalytic wood stove, for example a Blaze King "King" model, you can achieve 36+ hour burns. Yes it does require good fuel (oak) and burning on a lower setting but it does work. It is great during ski weekends when I leave Friday nights and return Sunday. It keeps the house warm (60's) for the weekend. On return, with a hot wood fire, it is quick to get the house back up to the mid-70s
Yes, I burn both wood and coal. Wood is cheap, coal is easy.
