My sister and brother-in-law live in an “A” frame house in the mountains of Pennsylvania. They heat with coal. It’s a rather neat coal fired heater. It has an auto feed hopper the feeds the heater as it calls for more coal,so it not like some of the old ones like we had when I was a kid and my grandfather would go down and shovel coal in the furnace in the morning and then again at night before we went to bed. Other than taking out some ashes (Which Earl likes for the driveway in the winter) they seem to be pretty happy with it and if I remember right, I believe they spent about $400 for coal last year to heat their home (small two bedroom, but still considering northeastern Pa., I didn’t think that sounded too bad).
