About: Heating With Coal. How to Start a Coal Fire

What about an old fashion fireplace, so would I use a different method of getting an Anthracite fire going or will the same method work?
It is much better to have a hopper to auto fill coal into the stove.
Don't have a coal burner, don't even have an interior fireplace. You kept me interested however. Very informative, nice work.
I burn Anthracite in a Coal Chubby. I use match lite charcoal to get the Coal going. It works great.
Were did you get your stove
Thought coal stoves loaded from the top. So if you want less heat either open a window oir get a smaller stove?
too long lecture ..i stopped halfway
I see mahanoy city on the coal bag I live 30 minutes from there. The heart of the PA coal region
Did you say a thousand tons of coal for free ? That’s like 166 years worth of coal
It's too bad that coal is not a renewable resource and that according to the World Coal Association it will run out worldwide in 2130.
How would I know if my stove can be used for this type of fire because I’m not sure what kind I have it’s over 30 years old
Do the coals have any smell? Can you also put wood on the coals for the good wood smell
Where do you even buy coal at? Pretty sure Lowe's / Home Depot doesn't carry it.
Thank you. I learned a lot through your video.
How do you find normal house coal for burning?
Nothing better than a naturally fueled stove. I have never seen a coal wood stove in my country. Certainly would limit the smoke in the atmosphere.
Thank you so much for making this video. Very informative and well explained. I just bought a vintage coal laundry stove. Not sure how I'll be using it, but this video takes the mystery out of using coal. I checked prices on anthracite coal, by the bag, and it's $3.25 for a 40 lb bag. If it is delivered by truck it costs $97.91 per ton, in 2015. That's 2000 lbs of anthracite coal for $97.91. 2000 lbs divided by 40 lb bag = 50 bags. A ton of coal = 50 bags at a total cost of $97.91 ($1.96/bag X 30 days = $58.80/mo). 50 bags purchased from Lowe's = $162.50 ($3.25/bag X 30 days = $97.50/mo). So, you save $38.70/mo by having it delivered by the ton. Based on using 1 bag per 24 hours.
Oh my SINGLE DIGITS! Nooo... come to Canada bucko. Go to -40°C... Celsius not single digit Farenheit. Anyway nice video man I was wondering about coal and how to burn it
i thought you said you only had to add coal every 12 hours. it isnt 12 hours if you add coal to it every 30 min. seems like alot of work.
I'm a fireman on a steam locomotive. This is a ritual every 7 days or after a mandatory inspection. We use bitimous (hopefully I spelled that right) which is very messy even when wet and it produces alot of thick black smoke, we could use anthracite but the expense would be out the roof. Great video

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
