Good luck with that, Art. Remember, you are only as old as you feel. Yes, there is a bit of work with coal compared to oil, but darned if it isn't good for you and cheaper in the long run. Since you are experienced with coal you should have no trouble at all.

My father had electric heat during the seventies when he built his house. The cost of electric was actually as cheap or cheaper than oil. He delayed and delayed and never switched to oil when it was cheap in the 80's and 90's. He did switch finally when he realized he was burning money. Now the table is turned again and he is kicking himself and thinking of altermative heat.

Best of Luck.
