I'll try to take lots of pics since I know you guys like that sort of thing. The plumber should be out Monday or Tuesday, too, so it is my hope that we will be up and running fully by midweek!
Can't wait to be warm.

dalimama wrote:Yes! The install is complete minus the missing baffle and one other part that Matthew (from this forum) was able to construct by cutting a piece of sheet metal out of our old oil boiler and using that for now. I have pics and some video but haven't had time to upload anything yet.
So, we are using it and our house is warmer than it's ever been even set at 64. Without the baffle, I understand we are losing heat up the chimney, so we don't want to make the temp any higher until the baffle arrives. We bought our first ton of coal last Monday, 1/21, and the pile is looking like it only has a few days left... that seems like a lot of coal to burn in 12 days. So, my question is would the lack of baffle effect how much is burned this much? We are heating a 3 story, 112 year old Victorian with original windows approx. 1800 square feet, plus basement.
