Not sure how big your houses are, but are you saying it took almost a ton of coal for just the month of March? I used a ton from Dec. to Feb. In March alone, maybe 800#s, but not an accurate assessment.
Only the month of March is being considered. I used roughly 1,517 lbs. to heat the home itself in March, and roughly 140 lbs. to heat the homes domestic hot water in March. The combination of the two equals 1,657 lbs.
