Product Feature: ProBuilder 72

March 15, 2018 | Fireplaces

We introduced the ProBuilder 42 in August, and added it to our showroom in November. It was well-received, and popular amongst buyers looking for a clean, no frills type of unit. FireplaceX has now just released the ProBuilder 72. This is the second unit of a series of value-priced, efficient fireplaces. They feature the great technology we’ve come to expect from the FireplaceX brand, but without a lot of options and features, which would run the cost of a unit up. The ProBuilder series are available in IPI or Standing Pilot, and have optional twin 90 CFM fans, the remote control is also an added option. These units will be very popular amongst builders or developers, as they feature a contemporary design, and heavy duty construction that will make them durable over time, unlike the builder’s special fireplaces of yesterday. Look for the ProBuilder 54 Linear and the ProBuilder 36 Square to be released within the next year. Come see the ProBuilder 42 in our showroom.
