Mine burns only between 15 and 16 lbs. per day during the summer, and some percentage of that (4 lbs. per day perhaps?) is for heating the homes DHW. As I stated earlier there is no timer and there is no need for one. The Coal Gun does not have a blower. It has a fan, and its function is significantly different from that of a blower.
