We deliver (from smallest to largest) barley, rice, pea, buckwheat, nut, and stove coal. We stock rice – pea – nut at our coal yard. Stove, nut and sometimes pea coal are used in hand fired coal/wood stoves where there is a grate that needs shaken to stir up the fire. These stoves totally depend upon the draft and airflow that is allowed through the draft controls and up the chimney.
The smaller sizes (common is rice and pea) are used in stoker stoves which are automatically fed from a hopper onto a grate with forced airflow via a fan. These stoves require little work and probably can maintain more even temperatures because you have a consistent draft and are not depending on outside airflow.
The BTU output between the different sizes does vary at all. So, you can rest assured that no matter which size your stove needs, you will get the same btu output as any other size of coal.
Next to bulk firewood, coal is the cheapest heat per BTU output. One ton of bulk coal is equal to about 1.6 ton of wood pellets – BTU wise. If you use this fuel cost calculator and put in the correct pricing, it should tell you why coal is one of the cheapest heats there is.
Another great fact about coal is that it can be stored outside – with no concern whether it gets damp – rain or snow. Unlike wood pellets or corn that needs to be dry, or it will be destroyed.
Contrary to popular thought – coal is very ozone friendly – it puts out less emission than a regular wood stove. Harold Schobert, chief scientist, with Schobert International LLC did an in-depth case study in 2015 on the carbon footprint differences between met coke vs anthracite. So, all the hype about coal being dangerous for the environment isn’t as big a problem as we thought.
We use Blaschak coal, reading anthracite and a mine in the Hegins area for our coal. Blaschak coal corporation and reading anthracite coal – Pottsville, Pennsylvania
The older hand fired models, where the grate needs to be manually shaken, can put off more dust in your home – however a lot of it has to do with how the coal and ashes are handled. Oil can be added to your bulk coal as well as keeping a watering can close by to wet the coal down before pouring into your hopper. The stoker stoves do not require any fire to be grated, therefore less dust. If ash pans are taken out carefully and even dampened a little that helps as well.
We offer white and red ash coal – white ash is probably the most desired because it puts out higher heat per lb. But also requires a good hot fire and airflow to get that.
The red ash coal is a softer coal – usually mined from the top of the vein. The advantage to this coal is that it does not require quite as hot of a fire to keep it burning – great for summer use.
We offer both! We will deliver coal and wood pellets to your desired location, or you can stop by our ono coal yard to pick up your order. We offer price breaks at 0–1-ton, 2-4 ton, and 4+ tons. Contact us today to learn more.
