The owners have been burning wood to heat homes and garages for over 50 years. Portage and Main wood boilers have been in business since 1973, and the Polar brand started in 1995. These stoves are made in Canada and sold by a Canadian wholly owned family. They have a solid commitment to quality and produce the heaviest wood boilers in Canada.

The Best Source for Home Heating

Wood is remarkable. It can be used to build cities, but also can be used to heat them in an almost net zero fashion. We have designed our boilers to extract the most heat from Canada’s national resource and do it efficiently and cost effectively as possible.

Quality Workmanship

When you look at the competitor stoves, look at all aspects of the furnace. When making an investment such as this you need to look at the longevity of the furnace. Our stoves are a lifetime investment because we invest in the amount of steel that each stove carefully receives during the manufacturing process. More steel means that you will have a better lasting boiler.
