Burn Technology

DISCOVER THE TYPE OF WOOD STOVE THAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU


Wood burning stoves come in two different kinds of combustion technology:
CATALYTIC and NON-CATALYTIC
Consider the unique benefits of each in relation to your specific needs.


AS A PRIMARY HEAT SOURCE

Catalytic

Offering higher efficiency heating, catalytic wood stoves are ideal for those who wish to replace a major portion of their heating needs with their wood stove. Note: A catalyst needs to be cleaned and maintained and generally needs to be replaced every 5 years or so.

  • Higher efficiency lowers fuel costs to heat your home.
  • Longer, more even heat output with thermostatic air control
  • Reduced particulates for a cleaner, more eco-friendly burn

FOR SUPPLEMENTARY HEAT OR AMBIENCE

Non-Catalytic

Non-catalytic wood stoves are slightly more affordable and require less maintenance. Easy to start and operate, a non-catalytic stove is ideal for those with less heating demands.

  • Lively flame picture
  • Easy to use and maintain - no catalytic combustor
  • Hassle-free operation
