TRUE Series Named One of 2012's Best New Products
One of Heat & Glo’s most exciting new products has been chosen by This Old House magazine as one of the best new home products of 2012. The Heat & Glo TRUE series gas fireplace was featured in “The TOH Top 100” as part of the November/December issue of the magazine, and is featured online here.
We love what the editors had to say about it: “Realistic, towering flames that pump out 65,000 Btus through the largest glass viewing area of any gas-burning unit—up to 50 inches across—make it difficult to distinguish this from the wood-burning real thing.”
For the TOH Top 100, the editors at This Old House hunted high and low to find the most unique, helpful, and coolest home products in seven categories: Kitchen, Bath, Tools, Building Products, Outdoor Living, Home Tech, and Finishing Touches. The TRUE was recognized in the Home Tech category.
The This Old House 2012 list marks the second annual The TOH Top 100 and includes items for people who love houses new or old and are looking for the newest ways to fix them up. In addition to the Heat & Glo TRUE, some other winning products included an ice tray that won’t spill, a drain plug that sheds clogs, and carpet that stands up to an elephant.
According to Scott Omelianuk, editor of This Old House, "The TOH Top 100 is the result of an exhaustive search for the most forward-thinking, relevant and necessary new home products out there. Through the winners, we saw several major trends emerge in homes, including bringing the outside in, simplified Do-It-Yourself, and getting high-end looks for less.”
