Why I like Napolean woodstoves.

There are two reasons that I like Napolean woodstoves:

  1. They heat well and my customers rave about them.
  2. They save my customers money.

We do not have a brick-and-mortar storefront, as we clean and repair chimneys and install woodstoves. We order in our Napolean stoves as needed. This allows us to pass the savings along to customers. Our customers rave about their new stoves heating capacity and fuel efficiency. They also love the price. Here is a link to Napolean corporate:

The above photos are of extremely flexible PVC rods and of a poly brush. This equipment is ideal for cleaning light-weight stainless steel all-flex liners. These rods and brushes navigate bends in flexible liners very easily. The rods and brushes in the photos below are very stiff, and can get caught up in a flex liner, and possibly rip the liner. They should not be used:
