US state offering incentives to replace older less efficient stoves

Recommended Posts

Possibly but I think the US market is quite different.  They have considerable rural population who rely on wood heat (or spend fortunes on propane, oil or electricity).  The stove market is quite different as a result.  I think they have some great stoves....I love the idea of filling a massive firebox in something like a blaze king Princess, then dialing in a temp and letting it use it's thermostat and catalyst to control the burn, clean burn and burn for 24-48 hours!  If you stocked blaze king, or some of the other us brands, I think you'd be the first in the UK..... Worth considering

Yes some of their EPA approved stoves look very good but way to big for many UK homes.

Oh yes I know they are large. Simply fitting them in a typical UK house would be awkward with many.  The Catalytic stoves can be big but run low though.... Huge firebox just smoldering and the cat burning the smoke, all vents controlled by the t-stat. Stoves like this are designed for efficient, low faff, background wood heat.  Light the stove once a year and burn for 6-7 months, loading once each day.

 

I'm not surprised big stoves like that aren't common here but I am surprised that there aren't a few.  I guess certification costs may make the market unviable but I thought (could be wrong but) our EU regs followed the EPA rules, I bet the tests would need repeating though.

 

I'd struggle to get a sofa in my lounge if I installed a blaze king king, but do like the idea of 48 hour burns between reloads!
