First heat-circulating fireplace

In 1927, Heatilator patented the world's first heat-circulating fireplace. At that time, wood was essentially the only fuel available for home heating purposes. Since then, Heatilator has branched out into offering a variety of other fuel types and fireplace designs. At one time Heatilator's heat-circulating ability was so well-known that it caused generic references, with homeowners proudly claiming that their fireplace was a "Heatilator" because it circulated heat – even if in fact it was made by a different manufacturer.

Today, Heatilator makes wood burning fireplaces, natural gas, and electric fireplaces either for indoor or outdoor use. Heatilator's parent company, Hearth and Home Technologies, owns Heatilator as well as Heat n Glo, Aqueon, Quadra Fire, and FireSide.
