This fireplace uses a catalytic combustor to increase heat transfer to the room and reduce emissions. The catalytic combustor takes dirty smoke and turns it into extra heat and cleaner emissions.  A combustor temperature probe is included with the fireplace to monitor the combustor, and the electrical in-wall control center switch plate displays the current catalytic temperature with the press of a button. The 42 Apex wood fireplace features an in-wall Control Center, the first in the industry to combine a digital catalytic temperature readout and a slide rheostat for the standard fan. This user-friendly device combines your fireplace controls into one simple, sleek design and can easily be mounted and integrated into the wall. With this wall control, you can adjust the amount of heat being distributed into the room, understand when your fireplace is performing at optimum efficiency, and even start your fire with the push of a button! The 42 Apex comes with a useful tool that allows you to adjust your air control, open and close your bypass damper, and access the loading door without accidentally touching the fireplace's hot surface. The bypass damper makes it easy to startup fires and ensures smoke-free reloading. The Apex 42 wood fireplace's perforated air wash keeps the viewing glass clean, and the exceptionally quiet 400 CFM fan minimizes noise while maximizing heat output.

WE DARE YOU TO COMPARE! The 42 Apex wood fireplace is 2020 EPA-Certified using the new EPA Cord Wood protocol rather than the Crib Wood protocol. The differences between EPA Cord Wood & Crib Wood testing are essential to consider. Some manufacturers use the Crib Wood testing protocol, which tends to produce great lab results that are not real-world measurements and will differ significantly when the unit is installed in your home. The Cord Wood testing protocol gives you accurate real-world measurements of how well the appliance will burn and perform in your home.
