This is just a quick introduction to this forum while I learn the ropes.
Installed a Leisure Line Pocono furnace on February 17th, 2012 and have enjoyed constant and consistent heat since then. I purchased it from STOYELL Stove, Coal in Moravia, NY and they installed it. Rodger and son Mike Stoyell are tops and very professional. I highly recommend them to anyone in this area.
We have been customers of Suburban Propane and Oil for over 40 years and I have had it with their pricing. Checked around and found that they are way more than anyone else around here and after a $780 bill to fill my tank, I said that that is enough. I knew of some people who had coal stokers and I could not believe the heat that these stoves were putting out and once I found out what it cost them, there was no going back to oil.
Even though the temperatures are way out of the norm for this winter, I don’t know if I’m burning more coal that I should. I have figured that I’m burning around 48# per day since it was installed. I keep the Coal-trol at 72 days and 68 for the night. I’m heating a 1700 Sqft, 1830’s era farm house. It is fully insulated and all windows have been replaced.
I look forward to adding and gaining lots of information from this site. It’s great knowing that there are so many out there who are becoming non supporters of the Middle East oil suppliers.
