Northwestern Minnesota provides the perfect stage for discovering the future of fire through the development of advanced heating systems from Central Boiler.

In the mid-1980s, Dennis Brazier founded Central Boiler in his hometown of Greenbush, located in northwestern Minnesota, a mere 20 miles from the Canadian border. In this small community, the workers are dedicated, the people are warm and the winter temperature can plummet to nearly 60 degrees below zero. Because of the weather conditions here, community members appreciate the need for reliable, yet efficient, heating systems such as the wood heating systems available from Central Boiler.

Today, Greenbush is home to a variety of industries, ranging from manufacturing to farming. The community supports many civic organizations as well. Community members enjoy numerous recreational opportunities, including golfing, swimming, snowmobiling and stock car racing at the Greenbush Race Park. A Midwest tradition, especially in rural communities throughout this region, Greenbush is host to various annual celebrations such as the Greenbush 4th of July celebration.

"Before, with our two indoor wood stoves, we had problems with smoke in the house, soot, and dirt. We were concerned about how safe they were, and we had to load them every three hours. With our Central Boiler Classic outdoor wood furnace, we feel much safer, and we only have to load it about every two days. Also, my son has asthma, and since we got the outdoor furnace, he's had fewer problems. I think it's because the air is much cleaner inside now. That was a real unexpected benefit. Probably the best one of all."
