I did burn wood for 20 Yrs in the living room stove.
Now since then I burn bagged anthracite in the same living room. If comparing to the full job from wood burning, there is no comparison with anth.
Less work
Cleaner to operate if wanted. I saw some videos showing very poor ways to work with anth.
Easier on the back,shoulders, elbows...
2 anth pellets are inside in about 1 Hr max, for the same 24/24 STEADY heat( but impossible to realise from a wood stove) = 2days of labor :mad:
No insects in anth
Less expensive when comparing to the 24/24 anth heat at the same temp, easy to regulate.
According to an article I saw last week, wood pellets is not that green as some want to beleive...
Anthracite is :idea:

Ed

I hope he wasn 't a troll and I honestly don't think he is. My gut tells me he is processing the info everyone has posted. In truth coal does sound too good to be true from a wood stove users point of view.

So Nortel don't be shy. Feel free to ask as many questions you want. NEPA members are happy to help. :D

It's only been roughly 30 hours since he started this thread. Maybe he hasn't gotten back to the computer yet. Or he doesn't get our enthusiasm :lol:
