There will be more good reasons coming in my next 4 blog posts.
This is the first of the five reasons why consumers would buy a catalytic wood burning appliance.
First, catalytic stoves are at least nine percentage points more efficient than non-catalytic stoves. The EPA assigns a 72% efficiency rating to catalytic stoves, and a 63% efficiency rating to non-catalytic stoves. The efficiency labels are on the stoves.
Here's why catalytic wood burning appliances are more efficient...
a. They convert more of the exiting gasses to heat.
b. They work more efficiently at low heat outputs.
