We just moved into a new home which has a Biasi 3wood5 in tandem with a conventional oil boiler heating system. I am looking to burn anthracite coal but all I have to work with is the instruction book that came with the stove. I really need some help to pull this off.
From what I have read on the internet, it seems that it is not necessary to have the grates to burn coal. Is this correct?
If so, how much coal do (can) you load in (before it starts to fall out of the door)?
Do you bank it up to the rear/sides of the stove?
Any support would be greatly appreciated.
I think you need grates. Don't know how you would shake the ash out without them.... If the Biasi you have doesn't have grates, then I'd think you have a wood only set-up in it. I don't know anything about these stoves, pictures help a lot... You might be able to install grates in it...
