Comments: I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH MY BRUNCO WC 190. I USE WOOD TO START MY ANTRACITE COAL, AND THEN JUST KEEP FEEDING IT COAL FROM 5 GALLON BUCKETS. I FIGURE FOR $700 WORTH OF COAL, I CAN HEAT MY 4000 SQ/FT HOME ALL YEAR. I ONLY HAVE TO FOOL WITH IT TWICE A DAY TO KEEP IT RUNNING. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! THE INSTALLATION IS INVOLVED, BUT I DID IT MYSELF. I HAD A LOCAL HVAC PLACE MAKE A PLENUM FOR IT ($72) TO TIE THE FURNACE INTO SOME EXISTING DUCT WORK. WHAT GOOD IS HAVING A BIG HOUSE IF YOU CAN'T KEEP IT WARM? HAVING THE BRUNCO ALLOWS US TO STAY WARM WITHOUT PAYING THE LOCAL ELECTRIC COOPORATIVE A HUGE SUM EVERY MONTH.
