North Carolina: Indian Lake

"I like the added warmth. And our room air doesn't get stale — because it's fresh instead of just re-circulated." 
     -Carole Bartol

"Our mountain house at Indian Lake, North Carolina, has a cathedral ceiling and a powerful Jenn-Aire that exhausts air out of our Great Room. But our Condar Fireplace always draws very well — because it provides the make-up air necessary for open wood-burning fireplaces."
     -Christopher P. Bartol


Minnesota: Minneapolis

"We live in a very cold winter climate, in the country north of Minneapolis, and we love a real wood fire, especially because wood is economical. The Replenum unit installed in our new home is great. The house air feels fresher, and we don't lose indoor heat when we're burning the fireplace."
     -Keri & Nathan Kollar
