I built a home in 2000 and we put a coal stove on the lower level with a 20 ton vat to hold the coal. Only need fill the hopper once a day. Cheapest, cleanest heat on the market.


I would be curious to see your evidence for calling coal the cleanest heat on the market.

It was a Penn State study. If I remember right the dude was a Bio engineer and it compared all heating sources. I'll see if I can find it.

Reading and CNJ and a few other east coast RRs burned anthracite coal in the steam era. The wide Wooten Firebox was needed to burn that kind of coal.

That is exactly what I was talking about. I can't find the study but it was done somewhere around 1998. It dealt with all pollutants and not just CO2. I believe it is still the cleanest fossil fuel. Also the safest.
