It's time to answer my own question. Heated my home for the past 3 yrs with wood and my decision to switch to coal was by far the smartest thing to do. No more cutting trees,loading wood,hauling, stacking, mess in basement etc... It's going to feel really good not to fear climbing the roof in winter to clean chimney. Now I'm enjoying more time with family, since work load is cut by 90%. Only regret I have is the plumber I used.
Totally made the project go over budget.
