Hi. I'm new to coal stoves and am about to purchase a Leisureline Pocono. Does anyone know of any qualified coal stove installers in the Farmington Valley region? I live in Simsbury.

Do you really need someone to install your stove? The unit your getting is a regular Stoker, where are you planning on putting it?

They are not heavy, a typical dolly and perhaps a friend is all that's needed to position your unit in the house, then it's just basic stove piping to the chimney and your power source. A Power Vent will require more advanced carpentry and what not.

Welcome to the world of coal, BT Enterprises (in Bristol) is a good source to check into for coal delivery in your area.

Are you buying it new? If so, doesn't the stove store do installs or know someone who does?

No, buying it used and I don't know anything about stove installation. And I will likely be using a powervent.

Roger that. If you're totally unfamiliar, then an experienced installer would be best. Call a local stove shop or coal supplier, they should know someone. As far as installing, probably any experienced oil burner tech could install and wire correctly. Operating instructions can be found here and on the Leisure Line Site. The owners of LL are frequent visitors here and may chime in if they know of anyone in your area.

If this is near you, it might be a place to start.

Thanks. They are very close to me and will likely start with them. They don't really do coal stoves, but should know someone who does.
