love2read Posted July 8, 2008 Share Posted July 8, 2008 Yesterday we were talking to our neighbor who has a coal stove and now we are thinking about replacing an old wood stove that serves as a heat source for some back rooms. Our neighbor tells us the new ones are extremely efficient. Last year he was spending $400 a month on oil and it averaged out to $100 a month for coal. Do you like yours? How far does the heat travel on the first floor? Any of you with allergies have a coal stove? One dd has some problems with asthma when we light the wood stove. Since our wood stove is old and not air tight, I'm hoping the new air tight coal stove won't create that problem. I know the allergiest discouraged the use of stoves and I'm wondering if there is any information out there on allergy related problems with the new stoves that just came out a year or two ago.
