Rob has a good point (as usual). I prefer separate systems for dedundancy but it's a good argument. Let's return to my line of thought.
Let's say amortizing it over 2 years (24 months).
Given Daves comparative list the monthly difference between the two extremes is:
AnthraKing 220K (extreme upside that is probably too much) $4,590.00 and that is $191 a month
Pocono (the lowest sensible choice) $2,981.00 and that is $124 a month.
The difference is about $67 a month about $2 a day. Now calculate your savings. Now I appreciate sometimes a lower price must be considered but the capital price of these stoves is cheeeaaapppp. It gets even better when you consider residual value. After five years you can get about 50% of your money back. Of course, I have to make some assumptions on inflation... All this stuff is chhheeeaaappp. This extends all almost all coal stoves. Buy the best you can afford and rest easy. Sorry I have to go now. It will be -20F (with wind chill) by 5AM tomorrow and my neighbors oil fuel truck is backing up the drive and I need to grab a beer and go watch and laugh.
I have a Hitzer in the front of the house and tonight I will have to learn how get it out of first gear. Does anybody know where the gear lever is?
