Based on the same gasifier wood stove technology as the better known and smaller Kimberly™ stove, the Katydid™ stove is expected to roll out in Fall 2014, just in time for the next heating season.
Katydid™ wood burning stoves were engineered to produce up to 85,000 BTU and heat up to 2500 square feet of well insulated space.
The Katydid™ wood stove heater is manufactured from American-made black steel in southern Oregon and measures 12 x 12 x 32 inches.
Semi-portable at approximately 150 pounds, the team at Unforgettable Fire expects that the Katydid™ gasifier wood stove heater will beat the CSA/EPA efficiency of her sister, the Kimberly™ wood stove heater, but will require a greater clearance.
Although Katydid™ will retail at $4145.00 CAD, your total installation costs are likely to be similar to other wood burning stoves costing far less. That’s because Katydid™ will vent with 4-inch pellet stove pipe rather than Class A chimney pipe, which is far more costly. Even better, because Katydid™ makes better use of her fuel, proven by particulate emissions less than 1 gram per hour, your heating needs will require less wood. That means less work cutting cord wood and more time for family and friends.
