Has anyone that uses house coal checked the price of it this year? I called Keystone tipple and the man said it is $150.00 a ton right now and will be raising again, Just thought I would pass this on in case someone didn't know the price has gone up, Have a good night.

Dumbest statement of the year award. People are looking for coal furnaces which are no longer made. The elderly fear freezing this winter due to the price of natural gas and oil, and some dummy gets on here and makes a statement such as that. Do you not read your newspaper or listen to the news. Man we are in an energy crisis.

My house is heated by wood and coal. I have to go outside to really see how cold it is. Best heat there is. We only burn about 4 tons a year. Highest we paid last year was $80 a ton. I know that it has gone up this year...but it can't possibly compare to gas or oil. When the power is off, we don't have to worry. Our furnace is gravity fed so the heat just keeps rolling. I wouldn't want to give that up.

Actually they so still make coal furnaces. I bought a new one about 4 years ago and my mom and dad just bought one 3 months ago brand new delivered to the front door. It will heat up to 3,000 sqf. and cost around $2500.00 up at Princeton on main st. in front of the school. It actually says buck stoves and chain saws but they also sale BRAND NEW COAL STOVES. If you don't need one as big they have them for around $1200. Nice furnaces and can order replacement parts. It anybody is interested in buying one from them ask for Robert he will treat you right. And no I'm no kin to him he just treated my mom and dad right on the price.

Thanks S W Wife for the info. The coal furnace you are describing,,is this the waist high handle shaker gravity furnace? Thats in a big box shape?,,I think the furnace is called a williamson. I'm not referring to the pot belly stoves with legs or the round small oil drum size stoves with legs. This furnace is the size of a coal train furnaces. My dad might be interested in finding parts for future reference. Thank you or anyone for any info you can provide.

Don't know about gas but the price of oil is high also- so it is easier for some of us to cut wood and buy a ton of coal than to pay the high prices of electricty and oil. And like some of the others that have responded to this thread has said, "When the power goes off those who have wood and coal still have heat", Have a good night.

You are so right I have a two story house with a full basement that's heated and I wouldn't even try to heat with electric, oil or gas. Heating oil is $4.69 a gallon. 500 gal. is what my mom use to use and that would be $2345. just for oil one winter. I use 4 ton of coal. in BigCreek right now you can get coal for $75 a ton one winter that would only be $300 so what would you use. And coal is ALOT WARMER. If anybody is interested in purchasing a NEW coal furnace I can give you the name and number of the guy that sells them.

The Elderly should be okay...They worked In the coal mines for years....

They are getting a good retirement, good U-M-W-A Health Care....They shouldn't have a problem.

They can make payments every month, Like I do...I pay $200.00 a month, every month...When I need heating oil It's paid for...

Don't you think Coal Is going up In price? It Is.

Try all Electric ,and get on the budget montly, it is clean, don't have to chop wood, no smoke,and like everything else it has gone up some, they have to buy expensive coal also,
We have all electric Basebord Heather for 50 years, have a controller in every room, in the winter just close the doors that you don't use ,and just turn the one that you need ,and your bill won't be too bad.

I think that coal and wood is alot better heat.my mother and father have a heat pump and they get cold at times my father said he would give anything to have coal and wood again,when i go up there house i do freeze because i am used to my coal and wood there is no better heat than that,and it is a lot cheaper to burn,one year we had a big snow storm and our electricity was out for a week we didnt get cold nor did we go hungry,i made our hot food by putting a frying pan on top of my coal stove and we got to eat a hot meal everyday. can you do that with a oil furnace or baseboard heaters? I had people coming to my house to stay warm and to eat a hot meal.so i am going to keep my coal heat,let the power go off and lets see who stays warmer.

I got mine 2 mos. ago for $70 at Baystar Coal at Cucumber (near War). It is some of the best coal you can get. Shane Hopson also brought me a load of coal and it is very good.
