Best Tips To Save Money With Coal

PostBy: Devil505 On: Wed Dec 24, 2008 4:47 pm

Started this idea on another thread but I figured, being the holidays & all, now was a good time to exchange tips on how best to save money this heating season.

First Tip:



Don't set fire to your coal!
(just load your appliance up completely......& then walk away!)

Benefits are many:

1. Depending on your coal appliance's size, one bag of coal should last you the whole heating season!
2. No dust (after the initial loading)
3. Never having to save an almost dead fire! :mad: (each time you check your stove..........It's fine! :up: )
4. No shaking down
5. Very little "wear & tare" on your coal appliance
6. Complete safety! (no CO or smoke detectors needed!)
7. End of the heating season.......You're ready for next winter with absolutely no work required!@!


Just consider this my Christmas present to you all!!

Merry Christmas! :devil:

(I'm sure I'll think of more tips...& any tips are welcome!) :cheers:

Sounds good, I'm on my 15th year with the same load of coal in the boiler. :D Not much heat but hey it's worth it once I add up the savings! I've quit work for the holiday and have been eating and drinking since 5pm so I'm going to log out for a few days. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

There must be some catch. I had a broken watch once that was right twice a day. Then came daylight savings & I was confused for four years. Finally, one shady day, I traded it for a sundial. I'm fine now!

Merry Christmas!
