Lennox Hearth Products Launches Montlake™ 230 wood-burning insert
Fireplace insert delivers industry-leading performance with innovative
heat exchange system
Nashville, TN—(January 13, 2012) Lennox Hearth Products (LHP) has expanded the popular Country® Collection with the introduction of the Montlake™ 230—an elegant, wood-burning insert that converts a fireplace to an efficient, clean-burning wood heater.
Available this spring, the Montlake 230 fireplace insert features an expansive ceramic glass door panel that offers unobstructed views of the fire, adding ambiance while allowing for easy heat transfer. The new, bold design is rounded out by a durable, finely finished steel construction firebox. As part of the Lennox Hearth Products Country® Collection, the Montlake 230 is manufactured in Auburn, Washington and boasts a long tradition of quality, efficiency and innovative wood-burning technology.
The EPA-certified Montlake 230 insert is equipped with Lennox’ innovative Thermal Fin Technology (TFT™) that provides more heat output, maximizing the insert’s surface area to quickly warm the room. Additionally, an advanced refractory baffle system holds more heat inside the firebox, promoting a clean, efficient burn that releases less heat into the flue.
Finally, to further maximize heating efficiency, a dense, high refractory brick that holds heat longer than competitors’ brands delivers comfortable, even warmth to a room while retaining heat longer between wood loads.
“With more people looking for ways to enhance their current fireplace, sales are up for both wood and gas inserts, which is also reflected in our web site traffic,” said Michael Lewis, product manager of stoves and inserts, Lennox Hearth Products. “The introduction of a best-in-class insert with industry-leading heat exchange technology positions LHP for success in this market.”
