Heat & Glo Launches New Brand Identity

New Heat & Glo logo and re-branding effort more accurately reflect marketplace position

Heat & Glo™ (formerly spelled Heat-N-Glo) today launched a new brand identity to better define its stylish and elegant position in the marketplace. As the leading fireplace consumer brand, the re-branding effort hopes to more closely instill the warmth, connection and balance that the Heat & Glo name delivers. Key to the effort is the introduction of a new logo that replaces the letter "N" with an ampersand, which also doubles as a flame.

"When we asked consumers what the Heat & Glo name suggested to them, they indicated warmth, style and elegance," says Susan Hilt-Lagos, Heat & Glo Brand Manager. "However, when we showed them the old logo there was a disconnect between what the name suggested and what it conveyed visually. The new Heat & Glo branding effort and logo fully capture the qualities that give Heat & Glo a distinct advantage in the hearth products market."

Heat & Glo anticipates that the re-branding effort will draw more attention to the brand from builders, architects, designers and consumers. Heat & Glo will roll out the re-branding effort and logo over the course of the next year.
