You're probably right. Im trying to get to 20# a day lol. I wish. This is my first year with coal in this house. We bought it in April this year and used the DS for heat till summer. 3 months ago i yanked the oil burner out and put in an efm 520 so im always trying to better it till i get where i want. Idk how good is good enough though. Basement is usually cool even with the stack heater. I wired that to come on when the stoker is running only to get the most heat and not just blowing cool air around.
