Write a review of Fire Chief
Fire Chief Industries manufactures indoor and outdoor wood burning furnaces able to heat between 1,000- to 5,000-square-foot homes. The company offers six furnace models that provide a range of cost and performance options.
St. Louis-based HY-C Co. acquired Fire Chief Industries in 2011. HY-C was founded in 1947 and today manufactures chimney covers, stove boards and fireplace accessories.
Fire Chief manufactures six furnace lines. Its indoor models range from the cost-effective FC300F to the top-of-the-line FC1100E. The FCOS1600 and FCOS2200D outdoor furnaces heat 1,800 and 3,500 square feet respectively.
Each furnace features a secondary combustion chamber that re-burns smoke and wood gases for increased efficiency, and a thermostat-controlled blower designed to maximize the heat output. The furnaces are made of heavy-gauge steel, with the exception of the cast iron front and rear baffles. All units are pre-wired to simplify installation.
