I don't know why I wait until the fall to start thinking about changing over heating systems
Maybe it's when we start hauling wood??
Anyways I'm thinking about just installing a coal boiler in the main house.. I've been looking at the Keystokers.. I was thinking a KA-6 would be big enough?? I called a local dealer today and told him what I wanted to do he suggested the KA-8?? I thought that would be to big??/
The furnace thats in the cellar is a 126,000 BTU.. The house is an old farmhouse that measures roughly 40x40.. It's has plank boards but has been wrapped with foil insulation and sided..Also the heat exchanger in the plenum is 20x20..
My question would the KA-6 be big enough??? I also would like to heat the hot water for at least the winter months with the boiler..I'm not sure it would be feasible to run the boiler in the summer?? There is only 2 of us that live in the house..Thanks for any help you can provide.. I've been reading quite a bit on the forum...
