It has only been used for 1.5 winters.
Your statement about coal not being for everyone is pretty much true. To be able to use coal you must be able to tend it at least twice a day and depending on the appliance three times a day. Coal appliances are not set it and forget it. You also might live in an area where the economics of burning coal just isn't there. Oil might be cheaper.
A few years back my routine as a minister meant I kept hours that were erratic. I could plan on being home at 3 pm and not make it until 3 am due to different emergencies. The hand fired coal stove we had didn't lend itself to erratic hours. Thank goodness we had a stoker in the basement with a LARGE hopper and a bunker that held 8 ton.
Moral of this story is watch the economics.
