I do love my coal boiler. I like that its quiet. I like that it's cheap to run. I like that my basement is warm. and I like that will pay for itself in about 2 years use. and my neighbors like the fact that they don't have to smell or see smog.
PS anyone wanna buy a chainsaw I own 5

Insulation panels around unit ,if done right would retain the heat,look closely at the LL OCB design & knowing how LL doe's things,it should be a very good design. WHO those who have no basement,trailers -- some areas a solid fuel heating device cannot be installed in a trailer ,or in a shop where gasoline powered engines are being worked on constantly .We qualify totally, we heat two trailers,no basements, & a lawn & garden equipment repair shop.It's a big world out there,some of us are not fortunate enough to have a basement, & with everything already in place for the existing OWB,why undo everything & dig all the pipes up ,etc.,when this OCB can simply be set in place of the OWB ?nuthcuntrynut wrote:thought on a outdoor coal boiler, but why would anyone want to let heat escape off of a boiler that could be in their basement?
