History of Heat Smart Plus
The first alternative heating energy product was the Portage & Main Boiler produced by Mr. Andrew Nagy. We were impressed: immediately started to leverage the benefits that the Portage and Main boilers offered over other conventional designs.
- Superior construction materials and methods results in a boiler line that has the best reputation and warranty in North America.
- Portage and Main “The Original Efficient One” burns hotter, drier and cleaner than other brands.
- This results in an efficient boiler that consumes 1/3 – 1/2 less wood than other brands.
- Portage & Main boilers can generate heat using cordwood, coal or woodchips(biomass).
