Catalytic Comeback

Woodstock is often asked why we use the catalytic combustor technology in our soapstone woodstoves. The article in the February, 2011 issue of "Hearth & Home" magazine provides a relevant look at the long term benefits and evolution of the catalytic combustor. Please read below or click here for the link, Catalytic Comeback.
The article confirms much of what we have been saying for years (catalytic stoves are cleaner and more efficient than non-cats), but it also mentions some additional benefits: First, catalytic stoves perform much better at low burn rates, and second, they are likely better with cold starts because the catalyst ignites more quickly than secondary combustion ignites in a non-catalytic stove.
