180 lbs through the stove in my shop - 750 sq ft kept around 55-60
I used to average 600-700 gallons of oil per year. I don't even want to think about electric @ $0.14 per kw!
This week has been crazy! I usually average 500 lbs per week in the winter, heck last January was 1,720 lbs for the month.
However, last year was wacky and mostly mild. I was looking through my log and one week the high one day was 20 and 65 the next. This year is normal New England winter weather.

This last week while its been super cold here i burned 550-600 pounds of coal in 7 days. The temps have been low single digits over night and high of 15 during the days all week. My living area is 2200sf, koker is in my unfinished basement and duct into my existing duct work. The temp in the house was set to 71 all week.
Is this in line to what i should expect to burn with temps like this....am i high low or right where i need to be?
