Hmmm. Already about 29' high. But worth thinking about.
What's the logic?

You need a timer, it kicks the furnace on for a few minutes each hour. In the summer that would be the only time it will run.

I just spray mine with a garden hose about every 2 days and it alleviates about 99% of it. You will not regret your decision. I had an all electric heating system before the coal. During Jan and Feb my electric bill was almost 700 bucks, 400 bucks the other heating months, and about 100 for the summer. Since I put the coal in my electric bills haven't been above 100 and I burn about 7 ton a year so it cost me less then 1000 to heat the house and domestic water for the whole year. You can't go wrong brother the savings and quality of heat are AWESOME!
