Have heated with this stove for 5 years now. It is our only source of heat. After installing we found we use only 1/2 the amount of wood as we used to. Since installing, we have added some onto the house plus added insulation plus new doors and windows. The winter of 2011-2012 was mild but we were surprised to find we so far have burned only 2/3 of what we did our first 4 years with the stove (prior to remodel). We have also cleaned our chimney only one time in this 5 years. The stove is beautiful and easy to maintain. We love it. Highly recommended.
Some have had a few minor problems with the catalyst and we have switched from the ceramic to the steel. So far we like it. We know Woodstock is also working on improving the cat (working with their supplier).
This is the cleanest burning stove we've ever owned. We've burned wood for 50+ years so we've owned a few stoves before purchasing this stove. We highly recommend this stove.
Woodstock is number one in customer service! There is no reason to be afraid of buying from them even if you do not go to the factory. Their 6 month guarantee is tops along with their service. If anyone has problems they are extremely easy to work with and they will do their best to help.
