You've heard about coal stoves? Many homes are equipped with wood-burning stoves but not a coal burning stove. If you have plenty of access to fallen trees, all that is needed is time and a chainsaw to turn those trees into firewood. But what happens if you don't have a good supply or you run out before the winter is over? Install a stove that will also burn coal. Coal burns evenly and consistently. The flexibility of being able to choose wood or coal burning stove is a plus.
What is the differance between a coal and a wood stove?
Outside of one burning wood and the other burning coal, coal burning stoves and circulators are generally EPA exempt, meaning that they do not have to meet the current 2020 NSPS efficiency standards for wood burning stoves.
