What Is A Coal Stove?

What Is A Coal Stove?-Fast Replacement Glass answers your questions!While the coal stove was the most common heating application for industrial businesses, today's modern coal burning stoves are just as elegant and classy as a fine piece of furniture. The internal structure is a bit more robust, however. Coal stoves are manufactured to endure high heat, and are fitted with a grate to allow combustion air to pass both above and beneath the fire. They are made from either cast iron or steel, and their size must be proportional to the area that you're attempting to heat. Hand fired coal stoves require a chimney for ventilation, whereas stoker coal stoves utilizes an electrical system that is similar to a pellet stove with a direct vent through the wall.

There are fumes that are associated with burning coal. While they are no more hazardous than any other fuel burning fires, they may give off a sulfur smell. However, with proper ventilation, many coal stove owners have no complaints about offensive odors. For your safety and reassurance, a carbon monoxide detector should be installed in your home.
