We are happy to announce that the US Green Building Council has included our EPA Phase II Qualified clean burning fireplaces and retrofit devices in the latest revision of the LEED v4 Standard. You will now receive a LEED point for installing one of our cleaner wood burning fireplaces or a HearthCAT Retro-fit device. See Announcement


At the December 10, 2013 City Council meeting, the Laguna Beach City Council voted to encourage the  use of fireplace retrofit devices due to the environmental benefits.

According to the City Council, "An existing wood burning fireplace can be quickly adapted with an EPA phase 2 retro-fit device that will greatly reduce the smoke emissions from your wood-burning fireplace." See Press Release

Fireplace retro-fits are now taking place in Laguna Beach, CA.


The Utah Department of Environmental Protection DEP now requires that all wood burning fireplaces installed in new construction be EPA Qualified.  EPA Qualified fireplaces are qualified through the voluntary wood-burning fireplace program, an initiative of the United States Environmental Protection Agency.  

The Utah Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Air Quality, Rule R307-302 for Solid Fuel Burning Devices for all or portions of Box Elder, Cache, Davis, Salt Lake, Tooele, Utah and Weber Counties requires that all fireplaces installed or sold after September 1, 2013, be EPA Qualified.   The Utah DEQ rule may be viewed at http://www.rules.utah.gov/publicat/code/r307/r307-302.htm#E8.

The EPA program encourages the installation of lower-emitting wood-burning fireplaces and retro-fit devices.  The EPA’s wood fireplace program covers new masonry and prefabricated (low-mass) fireplaces and retrofit devices for existing fireplaces. Fireplace retrofits can reduce particulate pollution by 70% or more. Additional information on the program is available at http://www.epa.gov/burnwise/participation.html#fireplace

Klamath County, Oregon Building Code, section 406.100(3)(f), requires that ‘any newly constructed fireplaces must comply with fireplace ASTM standards. Any retrofitted fireplace must meet fireplace ASTM standards.’  Fireplace ASTM standards are defined in the code as fireplaces emitting less than 5.1 g/kg as measured by ASTM E2558.  Additional information on the Klamath County Code: See PDF: http://www.klamathcounty.org/depts/countycounsel/CountyCode.pdf.

At Healthy Hearth, we are on a mission to improve the quality of the air we breathe through the promotion and sale of cutting-edge technologies for cleaner burning fireplaces. Wood Smoke from fireplaces is some of the worst pollution.

The "Award Winning" HearthCAT Technology will eliminate most of the harmful pollution from wood burning fireplaces. The HearthCAT will even increase the heat from your wood burning fireplace. See Videos Below:

Green Hotels & Lodges Go "Greener" with HearthCAT Fireplace Retro-Fits

Many Hotels & Lodges across the country have elected to eliminate the smoke and pollution from their wood burning fireplaces including the Hyatt in Carmel, CA. On their own initiative, Hyatt chose to be a responsible steward of the natural grandeur of the Big Sur coastline. The wood burning fireplace retro-fits at the Hyatt are helping Big Sur maintain a healthy environment for visitors and residents alike. See Brochure

We are including several "YouTube" videos below that show how the HearthCAT is installed and how it performs in use. You will also see the HearthCAT installed in a masonry fireplace. Another video will also explain how the HearthCAT will actually double the heat from the wood burning fireplace. See below:
