If you are thinking of a boiler system for hot air like Waldo suggested , please look at a Keystoker Boiler. I have one and it great, on my fifth year now. I don't have hot air but the boiler works great for my base board and domestic hot water.

Please continue to chime in with comments.

Mike,

If you are still selling wagons of coal, i may just end up buying one off you yet!! :D

A new chimney is out of the question. My daughter needs her closet space ;)

You do know we have the AK110 furnace as well? 1800 cfm fan and controlled by the coal trol.
Here is a pic of the heat exchanger. I guess you could say we were thinking outside the box. LOL

Dave -

Have you guys given any thought to making your own water-tube boilers? That heat exchanger looks a lot like my Smith/Mills 350.

If I were you I would go with a boiler and replace your elec. baseboard with hot water BB. You will be much happier in the long run.
