We Think Green!

At Monessen, ensuring we make decisions that are good for the environment is a key factor when selecting the products and services we choose to buy and use. Just like our beautiful styling and cutting-edge technology, it’s important that we incorporate “green thinking” into all of our products.

In the hearth industry, there are four “green” agencies that each have certain high standards for efficiency and the impact the product has on the environment at large. Depending on the product, it may also qualify for “green points” when being considered as part of a “green” or “LEED” certified building.
