Blaze King has been making large wood stoves for over 35 years. Over this time period we have built a tradition of craftsmanship and performance that is unequaled. In 1983, Blaze King invented the first hybrid wood stove using air tubes and a catalytic converter. A year later Blaze King received the first certificate of compliance, number 001, for the first clean burning wood stove in North America. We received this certificate from the Oregon Department of Environmental Air Quality which was a forerunner to today’s regulatory body, the EPA. A refined version of this technology is what you see in every catalytic Blaze King today
Thermostat control (No electricity required)
Blaze King’s built-in thermostat constantly monitors the heat output of your stove. It automatically adjusts the air required for combustion. This unique technology, where we combine the efficiencies of a catalytic combustor with a built-in thermostat, provides the longest burn times of any wood stove. You get a full night’s sleep without having to reload your stove. It also means that when you return from work, your stove is still hot and your home is warm.
70% turn down
Fine-tuned automatic airflow, as our thermostat and catalyst work in tandem, allows you to turn down your Blaze King catalytic stove by up to 70%. Non Blaze King stoves only turn down by 33% and have little control over their heat output. Because of this most people use expensive electric heat in the spring and fall because they cannot control the heat output of their secondary air wood stove. With a 70% turn down ability a Blaze king is perfect to heat your home in the shoulder season saving you money on heating costs.
Easy to Operate
Light a fire as per the instructions in your owner’s manual. After you have established a good fire and the thermometer needle is well into the active zone, simply select your heat setting. Your Blaze King will now automatically control the heat from your stove until you need to load it again, which could be up to 40 hours later depending on the model you selected.
Burn 33% less wood
The combination of our exclusive thermostat and catalytic combustor technology makes your Blaze King stove one of the most efficient wood stoves in the world. The proof of this is in our flue temperatures. Non Blaze King stoves have flue temperatures of between 600° F and 900° F while your Blaze King flue temperatures are between 150° F and 300° F. Non Blaze King stoves pump valuable heat up the flue. Your Blaze King catalytic stove keeps the heat in your home saving you money. By making your stove this efficient you will burn up to 33% less wood, cut, stack, load and clean 33% less wood. This is a major advantage that only a Blaze King offers.
All Blaze King stove’s produce very fine ash because we extract every last drop of energy from the wood. As a result you can go for very long periods before you have to empty your stove.
Every Blaze King has a steel frame around the door opening. Not only does this add strength to the firebox, but it creates a tight seal as it is pressed into the door gasket. Our engineers built the door latch so it is adjustable. You can adjust the tension on the gasket thus reducing the need for expensive replacements. The latch is also more durable because it is placed on the outside of the firebox.
