Catalyst burns extremely hot and maintains ignition with fire box at only 300 degrees. After 4 years of our use and who knows how many years before us the element is in great shape. We use half the wood to heat our larger home than many of our friends. Great viewing through glass. After experimenting with different loading techniques and sticking to white oak, red oak and hickory, we consistently get 10-12 hour burns when set for medium heat output, which is all we usually need. Couldn't be happier.
Our insert is positively vented with a stainless steel, insulated flue liner through the masonry chimney. We had it professionally installed after purchasing it used.
