Corporate History

The Hardy Manufacturing Company began in 1976 when Jerome Hardy and Bobby Smith developed a farmland heater. In 1978, the heater’s warm-air distribution system was replaced by a hot water system, which was patented in 1979. In 1986 Frank Moore, Hardy’s son-in-law, became president of the company.

Today the Hardy furnace is sold in the United States by a nationwide network of 275 independent dealers. Sales have also been made in Canada, Europe, Asia and Mexico.

Product Lines

Hardy furnaces are available in several models, including the KB125 and KB165, which burn cordwood; the C3 and C5, which burn coal; and the LC300, LC500 and LC2500, which are light commercial cordwood units. Hardy furnaces all feature stainless steel construction and can provide heat and domestic hot water.


The Hardy Manufacturing Company provides a 10-year warranty on coal-burning furnaces and a 25-year warranty on cordwood-burning models.

After 5 years of use, the copper water coil developed a leak (apparently a very common problem). We contacted the installer ***** *****, Minor Hill, Tennessee and reported the problem, and were told he would replace the coil. We did not know that Mr. ***** was in the early stages of Alzheimers, he had always been wonderful about fixing our furnace, so as time passed we contacted him several times. The last time we contacted him, we found out he was no longer in business with Hardy. I contacted the company only to find out that the 25-year warranty does not cover the coil, a vital component to the stove. Approximate cost was $8,000 and now it is useless, water pours out and it keeps filling over and over. For a product of this extremely high cost, we want this fixed by Hardy and no cost to us.

My husband and I purchased one of these approximately 5 years ago and we have had nothing but problems with it. The guy we purchased it from wouldn't come fix it or service it. Why would you sell something if you're not going to service it. Now the hole doors have came off, and they want us to pay for shipping to get it fix. To me this is a manufacturer problem, very poor craftsmanship. Therefore in my opinion they should take care of this, but instead… I'm very unhappy with this poor, very poor, product.

"Wonderful H-3"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have used a "Buck Stove" and a "High Valley" fireplace insert in my house for about 10 years. February 2015 I bought an H3, from Mr. Posey at the Hardy plant. I installed my unit the following summer in an 18' x 20' metal carport shed that holds 5.5 full cords of wood. I followed the instructions closely, with many bits of advice from Mr. Posey, who directed me with the wiring to my 35-year-old central unit. I have used my heater this winter with wonderful results. Moving the fire out of the house is a wonderful thing, less dirt and ash. My house is much more comfortable, we kept the house at 68 and now at 74. Learning to run the Hardy efficiently has been easy and quick, it likes big firewood. I would recommend a Hardy to anyone.

"Hardy boilng over"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I owned a Taylor wood stove for 22 years with no issue before it rusted out. Most of my friends had Hardy stoves and really spoke good about the stove, so I purchased a Hardy in 2009. I have had issues with the stove since purchase. The one issue I have yet to resolve is boiling over. I replaced both door seals last year which did not solve the issue. In October of 2015 I put hvac tape on the rear flap which solved the issue for about a month, then it came back. Wish I had another Taylor stove. Do not know what to do. Put in a new door seal? Not sure what to do. Can anyone help? UPDATE 2/23/16: Following up on a review I wrote on 1-3-2016 on boil over issue with Hardy wood stove. Well, the issue was related to the fan unit I installed. My fan when out and I purchased an OEM fan. The fan was not sealed properly, causing the heater to get too much air. The Hardy Dealer pointed out the issue. I installed a direct replacement, problem solved. Did not want to bad mouth a Hardy for something I caused. Remember only purchase parts from a Hardy dealer. Don't make my mistake.
