Oh it felt good to restart the coal stove

It got to warm around here for the last week so I had to let the stove die. Plus I found out I needed to flip my grates over thanks Lightning. Every time I heard the propane furnace kick on I would cringe. So now I can have heat again with out worrying about how much it's costing.

Glad my findings are helping others :) Thats what makes this site such a powerful tool!! It would take several years on my own to figure out half of what I've learned here.

I've found my furnace to be much happier with the grates the right way. No jams and more ash clearing is attainable :) .... Who says you can't burn coal effectively in these units hahaha... I've got mine running like a finely tuned instrument!!

I'm really surprised not only did it shake down easier but it seemed to burn more up and leave less ash.
