Katydid™ Wood Stoves – The Cleanest Non-Catalytic Wood Stoves Ever!
When shopping for wood burning stoves for sale, many people wrote to tell us how much they love our Kimberly™ wood stove, but needed bigger wood stove to for their mainstream size home, up to 3,000 square feet of well insulated space. We heard the need and answered the call with our bigger small wood stove, our Katydid™ gasifier wood stove, which we affectionately call, Kimberly’s “bigger, little sister”.
About the time we felt that Katydid™ was fine-tuned and ready to take to the testing lab for her EPA/CSA Certification and UL-Listing, the Environmental Protection Agency announced their proposal to reduce the federal wood stove emissions standards from 7.5 grams/hour for non-catalytic wood stoves to 1.3 grams/hour, beginning in 2015.
Under the EPA’s proposal, we can continue to sell our already EPA/CSA certified Kimberly™ gasifier wood stove for several more years, but it seemed foolish for us to invest the capital to certify our Katydid™ wood stove until we knew for certain that we could meet the EPA’s tougher emission standards. Instead, we took Katydid™ back to the drawing board.
At a cost of over $90,000 to re-engineer our Katydid™ gasifier wood stoves and perform the preliminary baseline testing, we now have every reason to believe that our Katydid™ wood stoves will produce emissions of well under 1.0 grams per hour in the official EPA/CSA test protocols, making Katydid™ the only non-catalytic wood stove to do so thus far, and the cleanest non-catalytic wood stove on the planet!
Kimberly™ and Katydid™ Setting A New Standard for Wood Burning Stoves!
In addition, our Katydid™ wood burning stove is also expected to be UL-Listed to be vented with 4-inch pellet stove pipe rather than Class-A chimney pipe, saving hundreds of dollars in installation costs.
