Some of you know that we decided to go with a coal stove for our new place.  Here is what we are going with for a stove (next size down actually) and a tour of the Hitzer factory. (sorry about the title Coal Srove...still working on morning coffee)

...I think it will be a good choice and I will probably lay in 5 years of coal for the future.  The nice thing is that the masonry chimney leads itself to being able to take a wood stove if we change ... and as I was talking about in another thread, the masonry chimney is being built to accommodated a change over to build a masonry heater or rocket stove down the road...trying to keep as many options open as possible for down the road.

only concern I would have is that it is too big for your needs, iirc it's rated for around 2400 feet and you are right around half that correct? Any concerns with constant underfiring of a coal stove so that you don't heat yourself out of the house?

We are a little concerned about 'over heating' too.  I talked directly with the factory guys and think the smaller 30-95 (which is rated up to 2,00 sq ft) is going to be good for us.

http://hitzer.com/pr.....per-Stove/

We are 1,320 sq ft on the first floor...upstairs the 'attic' (we are using attic trusses up there) is almost 600 sq. ft.  (total will be about 1,920)  the big thing is that we are building more efficient that many structures...sooo...the idea of over heating comes into play...the really nice thing about coal is that you can really 'damper' it down for a slow burn (will kick out less BTU's) that is what we are really banking on (plus the fact that we can burn wood in it for 'less of a fire')...the other really nice thing is that coal produces No creosote at all regardless of a slow or fast burn.  

So, we are definitely going into this with some unknown...but we have done the best research we can and talked to the right guys...at this point I would rather have too much than to little...will defiantly be something to experience and learn as I go.
