Hey guys, as you know the Northeast is under a blizzard watch. I recently bought a new cat for my woodstove but it hasnt arrived yet. Since the old one was junk its not at the landfill. Is it ok to run my stove without the cat? Obviously the damper would need to stay open. I have electric heat in the house and my generator can not power it. Worst comes to worst I`d like to use the insert to heat the house. I havnt used it in a week since I`ve been waiting for the new cat to come in. It was supposed to be here today but because of the storm it got delayed. Thanks in advance!
