Wood Burning Stoves
Wood burning stoves are a popular choice among homeowners, especially those with relatively quick and easy access to a wood supply. These EPA certified stoves get their high efficiencies from a re-burn system that is designed into the appliance. One type of re-burn system uses a catalytic combustor. The combustor achieves extremely high temperatures and most of the smoke from the fire is burned as it is routed through the combustor. Non-catalytic wood burning stoves use secondary burn tubes to re-burn the smoke. This function is done automatically. Catalytic stoves have a damper that must be engaged to re-route the smoke through the combustor. Both types of stoves will provide long burn times and radiate wonderful heat in your home. You will enjoy the beauty of the flames through the self-cleaning glass on the door. Wood stoves come in lots of sizes depending on how much space you want to heat and are made from steel, cast iron and soapstone. Front loading, side loading and even top loading stoves and popular.
