Welcome to the forum, after registering I would suggest first heading to your control panel, a link for this can also be found on the navigation bar on the top. The control panel has many options for adding information about yourself such as if you have a website, options for the forum like allowing other to see your email address and a panel for using the internal PM system which is similar to email. If you didn't do it when registering please fill out the following fields on the profile tab in the User Control Panel where applicable. This information appears on all your posts and will help other members help you.

  • Location - A general location is suggested, you do not have to give a specific location. There is many members here from all over the US and even overseas, by providing a location memebers that live near you will be able to provide you with specific information for your area. Specific information and answers that can be provided here may be different depending on where you live.
  • Stove/Boiler Make and Model - If you have already purchased a coal heating appliance or have on one the way fill these out so others have a reference to what type of unit you have. The Make should indicate the manufacturer (e.g Leisure Line), the model would be for example Hyfire 2.

If you currently do not own a coal fired unit and are looking for advice or suggestions on what to get provide the following information in your post:
  • Square footage of your house.
  • Current system that is installed and the BTU rating.
  • Do you have an existing chimney?
  • Rough estimate of your yearly fuel bill and type of fuel.
  • Rough estimate of your budget for the coal stoker/stove.

If you have any question about using the forum see the FAQ first and if that does not answer your question post it in this forum.
