In the "Black"

In the "Black"

I believe after this coal season ends, my stove will have put my heating costs/stove installation in the black.
I'm sure I've saved myself over the past 2 1/2 seasons, a minimum of 2 fuel oil deliveries, of roughly 400 gals. factoring in the cost of the coal. With less than a grand invested in my stove, pipe, and hearth costs, next season should be nothing but savings. :band:

You'd be lucky to find anything with such a fast return of investment! My previously enjoyed boiler has paid itself off in less than one season. I'm already in the "black" :D
