Welcome to the forum. Up in the right hand corner of the screen you will see a search box. Suggest you type in your model of coal stove and read, read, read. Your about to enter a whole new world of burning black rocks. The equipment is different, the technique is different and the requirements are different than any other type of fuel you ever burned in your life. If you have any friends who burn coal I also suggest you sit down with them and the beverage of your choice. If you tell us where your at their might be a forum member close to you that has the same equipment you have and can show you how it works and what you need to do to save save save save money heating your home.
