We have purchased the TLC 2000 but haven't delivered yet. We originally opted to have the new fabricated chimney installed by the dealer too BUT, I found a local guy that will save me 500 on the install. I hope that won't p-off my dealer. The dealer was going to deliver and set up the stove. Put together and after chimney was installed ,start a fire etc. Probably won't set it up now though. Our stove cost was 1699,plus 325 for gold door plus 55 for gold accents and 55 for grill option[probably won't use] plus the harman blower for 105.00. Now we need to buy the chimney parts which seem expensive . The dealer has the metalbestos ,but I am checking into Excel etc. Looks like the nearest delivery for coal is Champlain in White Hall and coal goes for 285 a ton right now . Free delivery for the first 20 miles and 2.00 a mile after that.

He says the inside will be an 8'' flue. I told him the stove was 6'' and he says the extra draft can be cut back by the stove if need be. What size is your masonary flues ?
Will rice size produce even less heat than the pea size? Or, will it not even work in that stove? What does Harman recommend?LsFarm wrote:For the TLC 2000; if you can, buy some of both pea and nut size coal.. and try them both... for maximum heat output, nut will be better, but you might like the pea size for most of the time..
