As we transition into the cool, crisp, autumn weather, those of us in the hearth industry know the busy season starts now! This is the time of year when homeowners flock to the hearth retail stores to see what they can do to provide alternative heat or explore options that will create a special look for their home that only a fireplace or stove can provide. That’s why the fall season can be the make or break for our business.

Although pellet sales can be a rollercoaster ride with the last three years trending down, we are currently seeing a substantial upswing. Early sales of pellet vent show double-digit increases and OEM appliance sales are following, although not quite as high. We do not expect a crazy year for pellet vent, but DuraVent and Security Chimneys are gearing up to supply an increased amount of product this fall.

We are seeing strong sales of the Direct Vent product family due to several factors; reasonably low natural gas prices, strong new home construction, and additional OEM appliance listings for DuraVent Direct Vent.

Good Luck on your 2018 heating season. We are all looking forward to cooler weather!

Industry Focus:
DuraVent + Montigo

With Montigo’s long history as a world-class fireplace design and manufacturer, we are proud to have our DuraVent Direct Vent approved for use with their direct-vent gas fireplaces. Besides Montigo’s own vent pipe, DuraVent's direct-vent system  is now listed on their appliances. This approval gives Montigo dealers, who sell other appliances that use DuraVent DirectVent, the ability to only stock one style of pipe rather than two. Our commitment to innovation and excellence pairs perfectly with Montigo’s values and we look forward to more successful years ahead together.

DuraVent's Improved Tee Cap
We listened, we learned, we innovated. Our new Tee Cap for PelletVent was redesigned with the longevity of our customers’ pellet stoves in mind. Our spring button design has made it easier to remove and the lower profile body makes it easier and more convenient to clean. Ash and other debris can get caught within the cap, resulting in an inefficient burn and possible damage to the stove. By making the removal and cleaning process simple, customers can enjoy their pellet stoves safely and longer this fall.
