Thank you for those who helped me on another thread decide if I want cat or non-cat for a new house I will be building. After some reading it looks like I want the low and slow type cooking of the cat stove. I bought and installed an Englander 30 in 2010 and have been enjoying it ever since. I got it because it is a good affordable stove and it fit our very limited budget at the time. In building the new home I can get the stove I want, not the cheapest one I can find. So with that said...I have some specific questions on these stoves. Yes, they differ greatly in appearance but I'd like to just focus on the performance/function questions for right now. My house will be a 2000sq.ft. two story with a fairly open floor plan. It will be insulated and sealed to the gills. I will be using an outside air kit and will have about 22ft of double wall chimney pipe plus 5ft of double wall stove pipe. Straight up and out through the interior of the house. I burn with seasoned red oak. Woodstock Progress Hybrid My understanding is that this stove acts more like a cat stove when choked down and more like a secondary stove when burning hot....is this understanding correct? So basically I can get long burn times (low) or massive heat output (high)? I have been reading about issues with the screen coming out, problems putting it back in, or clogging up. Has this been resolved? Are there any other known issues that are ongoing? I plan to continue cleaning my own chimney. Can this stove be cleaned from the bottom up from within the firebox? If yes, what gets removed? I believe I am reading that 12hr burn times are typical. Longer is possible under ideal conditions and shorter if you are running a hotter fire. Is 12hrs about average? I read that there are provisions for a cat probe on this stove. Where is it and do I have to crawl behind the stove to see it? For people who have this stove....would you buy it again?
