My name is Dan and I live in upstate New York. My house is ~3500 ft. sq. and built in 1894. I burned wood in my basement for 20 years but got tired of hiking it into the house. I bought a Hitzer 50-93 and really like it when it's running. Some days are better than others but I'm having trouble keeping it going all night.
I'm off to the FAQ area!

After a nice warm summer, I spent some weeks in the cold where the heating source was yak dung... not many BTU's in that! So, when I came home and was making a decision about a fireplace insert, I decided on one that would burn the source with the highest BTU's. My granddad was a coal miner in PA, but I don't believe this type of knowledge is past down in the genes, so I am using this forum to learn how to burn coal.
