As a followup to my initial post, Coal Heat Is The New Alternative Energy – Say No To Oil And Propane, I created a spreadsheet to record statistics for the remainder of this heating season. I just finished formatting it and uploading it. Here is a description of the columns:
IN TEMP: Indoor temperature.
OUT TEMP: Outdoor temperature.
EMPTY ASH PAN: Notation of when I empty the ash pan.
OTHER NOTES: Description of maintenance steps or other actions.
TIME (MIN): Number of minutes dedicated to stove.
TOTAL TIME (MIN): Total accumulated minutes.
LOAD LBS.: Pounds of coal loaded.
TOTAL LBS.: Total accumulated pounds of coal used.
$$$ PER LB.: Average price per pound.
$$$ PER LOAD: Cost per load.
TOTAL $$$: Total accumulated cost.
Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
