I am leaning towards the AK-110. Everyone I talk to says coal is the way to heat. I am currently running propane for baseboard heat, fireplace insert, water heater, oven, and clothes dryer...So I will have to keep propane. Currently I am thinking of just adding the AK-110 and direct venting it to heat in the late fall thru early spring, then use the propane furnace I have to take the chill out of the air in late spring and early fall. From my research, I can buy enough coal for almost a complete winter for the same amount I spent last month on propane. I am curious if the AK-110 can be run, in any way, with multiple thermastats throughout the house? Any information, suggestions, and input would be greatly appreciated. I have the vender in Oxford(Peter) that I will be purchasing from. He has been very informative and helpful. It just looks like you are online more than he is...if you don't mind me asking you?
The only downside to the coal trol is you can only run 1 thermostat. But you can run your air zones on thermostats, then you would just have to experiment on the best place in the house for the Coal-trol thermost to be placed. The Coal-trol regulates the furnace very well. The furnace can idle at a very low temperature so you probably would not use the propane much or at all in the spring and fall. Its no problem asking me as well. Peter is a good guy. He has been very good with service and follow up from my experience.
There are a few people on here that have the AK 110 maybe they will chime in as well.
