Coal fired domestic steam boilers
In looking for a wood-fired steam boiler to replace my 30 yo OIL fired hot water, I was shocked to find that COAL fired steam boilers for domestic use are still being sold in VT & NH. I've been told by salesmen that COAL generates more BTUs, is cheaper than OIL, and can be put in boiler via hopper, just like wood pellets. So what's the downside?
