Coal stoves are usually cheaper to run than other fuel-type stoves and electric stoves. Coal is particularly inexpensive in here in Pennsylvania. In addition coal burns extremely efficiently and can produce more heat per ton than wood or pellets.
Coal stoves have a longer burn time than other types of fuel stoves. Some coal stoves can generate heat for 18 to 24 hours per fuel load, which is a longer burn time than wood. A coal stove may also be equipped with an automatic stoker that enables it to burn even longer at lower temperatures.
Coal stoves are clean burning, so they do not produce any visible smoke. Hard coal, or anthracite, gives off less carbon dioxide than other grades of coal, making it a preferred option for many homeowners.
Coal is typically easier to store than wood and other types of fuel. It is waterproof and not prone to insect infestations, so it can easily be stored outside.
