i am thinking about getting a coal stove and need some help. My house is about 4600sqft I heat with NG two hot air furnaces and have two wood stoves a Vermont castings Vigilant second floor family room and a Moe All nighter basement. looking to add a coal stove in 3rd floor living room thinking of possibly getting a LL stoker stove direct vent wondering how loud the vent blowers are? I have a 24KW whole house NG generator so the power outage issue is not an issue. Just don't want a lot of noise from the stove or should I be looking at a hand loading stove?
Thanks for the help.
