Save money on home heating - easily and conveniently.

Tired of spending your summers cutting and stacking wood? Or maybe you’re paying too much for heating oil or propane. Do you wish you had the convenience of heating with oil or propane but without the cost? With our automatic stoker stoves you can come pretty close.  Designed for primary or supplemental heat, you will find that our stoves, furnaces, and boilers give you the convenience of running 24/7 while drastically cutting your fuel bill.

The fuel that is used is anthracite rice coal. This is not the dirty, smoky, sooty, smelly coal most people think about. Your neighbors and visitors will not be able to tell you’re heating with anthracite.

Anthracite coal, also known as hard coal is the most economical way to heat your home plus the efficiencies of our stoves will make the savings even greater. No other fuel can save you as much, not even corn or pellet fuels. Heating with wood is the only exception depending on how much you personally enjoy the wood burning experience.

Compare for yourself the costs of heating with anthracite "HARD COAL" versus 

all other fuels at PennState.

These automatic stoking stoves are operated simply by turning the thermostat up or down, that’s it! No special knowledge or periodic adjustments are necessary. If you like 73°F just set the thermostat to 73°F. If you decide you like 67°F simply change the thermostat setting. It’s that easy. During the subzero days just empty the ash pan and fill the hopper once each day.

For the do-it-yourself person, our stoves are easy to install or we can install it for you.  No chimney? Use one of our direct (through-the-wall) vent models.
