Where can you get cheap coal to burn in a fireplace to warm the house.

1# Cheap
2# A few tons to keep the house warm this winter
Hopefully it will be cheaper then what I currently pay to keep warm. Electric power cost to damn much. Normally, I try to use wood, but that can get to be a bitch.

buy a wood pellet metal bucket....they are made to put in your wood stove or fireplace to burn....the pellets seem like they would be easier to handle than coal or wood. you can find the pellet delivers in the yellow pages or buy by the 40 lb bag at places like Sam's club.

There is a reason why people don't burn coal in fireplaces moron. Burning coal emits extremely toxic byproducts. On the other hand...Go for it. If you can find enough paint chips to eat as well you will hardly notice the effects.

You can't burn coal in a fireplace amigo, you have to get a stove insert. Coal burns from the bottom up and the grates have to be shaken. Even if you could somehow find a way to manipulate it to keep it burning, it wouldn't give much heat as coal burns very hot and it would go right up the chimney.

Good idea if you wanna die from carbon monoxide poisoning.

If you want to burn coal, get a STOVE and make damned sure it doesn't leak.

I damned near died from a leaking coal fired furnace that leaked carbon monoxide in the ducts leading into my room when I was kid.

I mean when the doctor first found me (doctors USED to come to people's homes, remember) , he told my mother that I was dead because he could find no pulse. AS my distraught mohter and doctor were rushing what they thought was my corpse to the hospital, my mother opened the window and the fresh air brought me back from near death.


I spend like three weeks in the hospital under observation when I was 4.

Yeah, it was THAT close.

That's funny. My grandmother burned coal in her fireplaces for as long as she lived in her house. Her fireplaces were equipped for the burning of coal. It kept you REAL warm on the front side, but your butt about froze!
