Can an EPA-certified Phase II catalytic stove save consumers money?

The answer is "Yes".....Let's say for example, if you have a typical unregulated stove and use three cords of wood (at $100/cord) and save on two chimney cleanings (at $50 each) per season, you can save about $200 per season by purchasing a new EPA-certified Phase II catalytic stove. A new catalytic stove will save an additional cord of wood out of every three cords you burn each season.

Your actual savings will vary according to how often you use your stove and other factors.

Nationwide, the net savings from reduced firewood consumption and fewer chimney cleanings is estimated to be $30 million annually. In addition, the health and welfare benefits resulting from fewer smoke-related illnesses and from reduced materials damage is estimated at about $1.5 billion annually.
