Warmth For Life


We take pride in our quality workmanship in manufacturing the best furnaces for our customers. Pro-Fab Industries has been manufacturing high quality furnaces for over a decade. The Empyre outdoor wood furnace continues to become a household name, designed in cold climates for cold climates. The Empyre can be counted on for quality, reliability, and savings.

Using wood heat saves you money and our resources. Wood is a renewable resource and in many cases an inexpensive alternative to conventional heating.

The Empyre is a non-pressurized system which heats the water surrounding the fire chamber. The water is thermostatically controlled by setting the aqua stat to the desired water temperature.
