Why our stoves

Dare To Compare - Your guide comparing construction between Lopi wood stoves and the competition

Our manufacturers have you, the customer in mind. Consider Heat-N-Glo, Heatilator, Lennox, Superior, Majestic, etc. All of these companies are very large fireplace companies, only you are not the customer. You are a spin-off. These companies want and depend upon large tract builders who care less about quality then they do about cost and appearance. You can't have quality and cheap pricing in the same product. Think Big Box. Notice, they never use the word quality. It is always lower prices.

Travis gas stoves are a higher quality than most other companies.

Having been in business for 32 years, we have had experience with several manufactures and products, and with out a doubt, Travis Industries is the best company we have ever dealt with. So who is Travis Industries?

They are the largest, privately-owned wood, pellet and gas stove, insert and fireplace company in America and encompasses four high-quality brands: Fireplace Xtrordinair©, Avalon©, Lopi© and the Tempest Torch©.. Where others build to meet minimum standards, Travis builds to exceed your expectations. Travis units are the industry leader in style and innovation, winning more Industry Vesta awards than any other manufacture. Visually, their units are balanced and pleasing to the eye in color, flame appearance, and lines.
  • Award winning Ember-Fyre Burner system, resulting in the best looking and most realistic flames, and now we have the Ember-Fyre Split-Flow Burner.
  • Up to 50% turndown ratio, from high to low, extending usable time of operation.
  • Up to 30 quality faceplates to choose from, not the flimsy designs of the big guys.
Travis units do not bang or oil-can from the constant change in heat output. Why? Because they use a heavier gauge metal. Most manufactures use 20 ga sheet metal and are comfortable that their may bang. Some companies even have a 'Bang Fix Kit'. Not so with Travis, as they use 16 ga and 14 ga metal to minimize any chance of banging.

Only Travis tests every component that could fail at the door when they receive the shipment, before the part is installed. This minimizes product failure after your purchase. Components include thermocouples, thermopiles, snap switches, blowers, valves, control boards, etc. Only Travis tests every assembled unit before it goes out the door. Others, only test the required 1 in a 100. units.

Only Travis treats the glass on their gas units with silicone on both sides (you may forget which side is which) to prevent etching of the glass over time.

Travis takes the time to properly set their thermocouples, which last an average of 7-9 years. Other company thermopiles last 3 to 4 years. (It is our guess that to insure proper ignition, the pilot is set too hot to guarantee light off, and prematurely burns off the tip on the thermocouple.)

Travis units out heat the competition (customer feedback). We expect everyone to save $100 to $150 a month on their fuel bills. I am presently heating my entire 3000 sq. ft. house with 1 gas fireplace. Perhaps, you could too.

And now, we have the patented GreenSmart System (GS), the most revolutionary gas burner system on the market.
