SALT LAKE CITY, May 12 /CNW/ - Pro-Fab Industries, North America's
leading designer and manufacturer of clean burning alternative energy
heating systems, received the Vesta Award for the Empyre Elite 100, the best new product featured at the 2011 Hearth, Patio and
Barbeque Expo (HPBExpo) in the Central Heating Systems category. Vesta Awards, presented annually by Hearth & Home Magazine at the industry-wide awards ceremony during the HPBExpo, are among the
most prestigious in the wood heating and hearth industry. These awards

Empyre Elite 100 was presented the 2011 Vesta Award for the # 1 product

available to more homeowners by bringing high efficiency central wood
heating systems indoors.
Rated at 89% efficiency and using only half the wood of conventional
wood boilers, Empyre Elite is a high efficiency, low emission
alternative to both fossil fuels and conventional wood boilers. With a
two stage boiler design and temperatures reaching up to 2,000oF burning the combustion gases in the lower burn chamber, Empyre Elite
achieves virtually smoke free operation and provides comfortable
hydronic heat. Empyre Elite's Electric Element Option also makes wood
heating more simple and convenient by allowing homeowners to easily
switch between wood and electric heat.
