I haven't been keeping real close track this year but I'm pretty consistent each year & use Blaschak 40lb bags

Rough Average Figures

1. Early fall: 1/2 bag (20 lbs) per day (stove temp 150*)
2. Late fall through mid to late December 3/4 bag (30-35 lbs) per day (stove temp 200*-250*)
3. Late December through January & early Feb. 1-1.5 bags (40-60 lbs) per day (stove temp 300*-400*)

I've been noticing stove users seem to use less coal.
But could it be that some are supplementing their home heating with coal?
I use my coal boiler for domestic hot water and it's the only source of heat in my home.
On the other hand I have been questioning the quality of coal I've purchased.

Domestic hot water can consume up to 40% of your fuel needs in the course of the heating season depending of course on useage.
