Will burning coal to heat your home effect your health?

yes. burning coal in your house is a serious issue . it contains very minute dust particles and also emits gases that are poisonous

Makwa, yes, I heard you can get "Black Lung Disease" from it.

I've never heard of it affecting a persons health hun.
Im sure it has to have some affect on coal miners later in their lives though, all of that coal dust going into the system


Katie
of course not . I have been using coal all my life . there's nothing like the heat from a coal fire when I lived in England it was one of the things I missed most about home.

As with any fuel, incomplete combustion can generate harmful soot deposits and proper ventilation of exhaust gases is necessary. I have operated industrial coal burning boilers and our biggest problem was the fly-ash. It contains large amounts of silica and classified as a hazardous waste. Anthracite (hard, black coal) is an excellent fuel for heating the home if you maintain a fire throughout the heating season. You will not burn anywhere near the quantity an industrial boiler uses. I don't know what Canada's equivalent of the EPA is, but I suspect there may be some regulation on allowable stack emissions and how to dispose of the ash.

Probably not, as long as it's properly ventilated. But coal does tend to produce sulfur dioxide, which is a pollutant, as well as carbon monoxide, hence the need for ventilation.

Case in point, the town of Centralia, PA, had to be abandoned because an underground coal vein caught on fire and is still burning some 30 or 40 years later, and is producing hazardous gases, as well as causing cave-ins and buckling roads. It started out as a trash fire at a dump, where the coal was very close to the surface.

If it has the right ventilation and it will be safe enough. When in doubt put a CO2 detector or meter in your house.
