He could always install a second fan to pressurize the boiler room. I once talked to someone that did just that...he had a big hand fed boiler and burned bituminous coal. Smoke spilling out of the loading door was a problem, so he installed an exhaust fan backwards so it would pressurize the boiler room. He said it worked excellent, prevented any smoke spillage and really got the fire cooking after a reload.
