as said... Its a question that cant really be answered, but assuming your from Conn. and we get an ideal 160 day burn season and you have a smaller, highly efficient stove, used as a supplemental heat source (which is what I believe your doing)... you cant burn less than 1 ton (If your just wondering for purposes of how much coal to buy... buy 2 ton and see how you do). most these guys here burning 6-7 ton are hardcore primary heat/hw folks (these are guys we envy!... you and I are not in that class yet
so... you cant burn less than 1 ton, you cant burn more than 6 ton... hope that helps
