Do you prefer Catalytic or Non-Catalytic? Here are the differences....

Catalytic – Offers 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. A catalyst needs to be cleaned and maintained and generally 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


Non-Catalytic – Slightly more affordable and require less maintenance. Easy to start and operate, a non-catalytic stove is ideal for those with less heating demands.
