Hearth & Home Magazine 2011 Vesta Award

The Vesta Award is a testament to our commitment to product quality and innovation.

Pro-Fab Industries, North America’s leading designer and manufacturer of clean burning alternative energy heating systems, received the Vesta Award for the Empyre Elite 100, the best new product featured at the 2011 Hearth, Patio and Barbeque Expo (HPBExpo) in the Central Heating Systems category. Vesta Awards, presented annually by Hearth & Home Magazine at the industry-wide awards ceremony during the HPBExpo, are among the most prestigious in the wood heating and hearth industry. These awards recognize and honor innovation in design and technology in Hearth and Outdoor Room categories.

Empyre Elite 100 was presented the 2011 Vesta Award for the # 1 product in the Central Heating Systems category on March 4, 2011. As the first indoor wood boiler to achieve Phase II emission qualification by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Empyre Elite has made alternative energy available to more homeowners by bringing high efficiency central wood heating systems indoors.

Rated at 89% efficiency and using only half the wood of conventional wood boilers, Empyre Elite is a high efficiency, low emission alternative to both fossil fuels and conventional wood boilers. With a two stage boiler design and temperatures reaching up to 2,000oF burning the combustion gases in the lower burn chamber, Empyre Elite achieves virtually smoke free operation and provides comfortable hydronic heat. Empyre Elite’s Electric Element Option also makes wood heating more simple and convenient by allowing homeowners to easily switch between wood and electric heat.

“The Vesta Award is a testament to our commitment to product quality and innovation,” says Grant Cairns, Vice President and General Manager of Pro-Fab Industries Inc. “At Pro-Fab Industries, we design our products with the customer in mind, always seeking to improve efficiency, accessibility and ease of operation.
