More than 12 million citizens in the US use some kind of stove to generate heat in their homes. Stoves radiate heat up into the air and the warmth in the air is carried to other parts of the house by the natural airflow.
There are many advantages of having perforated grates that allow a deep and strong fire bed as it pulls maximum heat and completely burns the coal. These grates move or shake to easily rid the fire of the ash. Coal stoves then radiate gentle heat back into your living spaces.
Another coal stove advantage is how we correctly direct the flame, allowing greater heat absorptions through the internal surfaces on the stoves. This is a built-in heat exchange that cools the exhaust air. A convection blower forces room air around the heat exchanger area and then releases hot air out of the stove and into your home.
Coal stoves provide comforting warmth and provide the highest possible efficiency to provide the maximum savings for you!
Some models of coal stoves have a hopper that holds, 110 pounds of coal These are called Coal Stokers. They automatically feed the fire and dump the ash. Our coal stoker monitors your room’s temperature and changes the amount of heat produced according to what your home need. With our coal stokers, you simply set the desired temperature, fill the hopper and empty the ash pan.
Stoves come with a thermostat that allows you to adjust the temperature to your desired comfort level. Whether it is cold or warm outside, the thermostat maintains a steady temperature in your home. If you are looking for something with low maintenance, a coal stove is a great option! A thermostat is designed for precise regulation of coal fire. It has the ability to adjust the fire to precise sizes when necessary and keep the temperatures within one degree of the setting. The thermostat automatically adjusts the speed of the convection blower according to the size of the fire.
Coal stoves have the longest burn time and are able to burn for up to 24 – 48 hours per fuel load. On average you will be tending the stove only two times a day compared to 4 times on wood stoves. If you decide on a coal stoker you will enjoy even long tending intervals of up to 5 days.
Coal stoves burn cleanly without any smoke that could lead to inhaling harmful gases and toxins into our bodies. They also give off lesser amounts of carbon dioxide. Inhaling such fine particles from smoke could lead to respiratory irritation and shortness of breath. Luckily, coal stoves save us from these harmful impacts! Hard coal does not smoke so, creosote will never form in your flue and chimney which poses a house fire hazard.
Stainless Steel Water Coil
The stainless-steel loop coil, which prevents rust and corrosion, is installed in the firebox directly above the fire. These coils can produce ample hot water for drinking, showering, laundry, and more. Another option that requires no electricity, is to radiate heat to a water tank mounted to the side of the coal stove.
Coal stoves can last an average of 10 to 20 years which allows you to easily offset the initial costs. A 1,200-3,500sqft home will use 1-4 tons of coal per year. The cost of coal is usually around $230 per ton. See why anthracite coal is the way to keep your space warmer for way less money!
