About Us

When brothers Ron and Dan Shimek began tinkering with fireplace designs in Ron's garage back in 1975, they didn't know they were starting on the path to become the largest fireplace manufacturer in the world. Nor did they foresee Heat & Glo's distinction as the "Innovative Leader" in the hearth industry. They just wanted to build great fireplaces.

Founded on a commitment to quality and innovation, their company grew. Then in 1987, Heat & Glo created a product that would revolutionize the industry. With the introduction of the direct vent gas fireplace, Heat & Glo made it possible to install a fireplace safely in virtually any room in the home. Practically overnight, the hearth industry changed from primarily wood-burning to direct vent fireplaces that were gas-operated.

In the years that followed, Heat & Glo's continued innovations produced numerous patented technologies that confirmed the company's position as industry leader. This relentless pursuit of improvement resulted in some of the most unique, realistic, and efficient fireplaces on the market.

Heat & Glo now offers a complete line of gas, wood, and electric fireplaces, stoves and inserts, unique surrounds and distinctive accessories-all designed to meet discriminating homeowners' desire for comfort, beauty and elegance.
