Coal Burning Stoves
Many homes are equipped with wood burning stoves to help keep fuel costs down. 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? It is to your advantage to install a stove that will also burn coal. Coal can be a clean fuel that burns evenly and consistently. The flexibility of being able to choose wood or coal is a plus.

Is it safe to burn wood in a coal burning stove? Is the stove friendly to both fuel sources?
In most cases it is perfectly acceptable to burn wood in a coal stove, however, please provide the make and model number of your stove to confirm.

Does offer a wood stove that has a door on left hand side?
My apologizes, but all coal burning circulators we currently offer have the door on the right hand side, as you face the unit.
