  • Heatilator & SimpliFire Products Rated as 2013 Consumers Digest Best Buys
    We are proud to announce that two Heatilator® gas products and the SimpliFire® Built-in Series were recognized by Consumers Digest as 2013 Best Buys.

    According to the Consumers Digest, Best Buys are products that “merit special attention from consumers based on a combination of eight criteria: performance, ease of use, features, quality of construction, warranty, efficiency, styling, and maintenance and service requirements.”

    The following Heatilator and SimpliFire products were chosen in the category gas-burning fireplaces. They were selected based on heat input, convenience options and quality of construction.

    Heatilator Novus Series – Best Economy Vented Gas-Burning Fireplaces.

    The Novus is a repeat BestBuy because of its value. It’s the least expensive vented gas fireplace that Consumer Digest found with a combination of a heat input that reaches 30,000 BTU, and a 20-year warranty. More information is available here.

    Heatilator Fireside Grand Oak Series – Best Premium Gas-Burning Logs.

    According to Consumer Digest, this gas log set has the highest heat input, by far, of any model, and the capability to adjust flame intensity, adding to realism and conserving gas. The three-tier burner system, unique to Heatilator, provides more realism than other models. More information is available here.

    SimpliFire Built-In Series – Best Economy Electric Fireplace.

    Consumer Digest chose this SimpliFire model because it’s the least expensive electric fireplace with a traditional look, and it has a remote control that allows you to adjust the light intensity of the “fire.” More information is available here.

    The process for selecting Consumers Digest Best Buys is rigorous. They begin by identifying all the products that are available to U.S. consumers in particular categories. Often the list is long (50–100 models). On average, only a small percentage of products evaluated are deemed Consumers Digest Best Buys.

    Congratulations to Heatilator and SimpliFire!
