Subject: Fire Chief Wood Furnace
Hello Dennis, Jeff Anderson here. Hope you are doing well. You
delivered a stove to me last spring in the Braymer area. I am just
writing to say that this stove is amazing. I am very impressed with
everything about it. Even through the recent cold snap, it kept our
house at 76 degrees perfectly. And I am not using as much wood as I was
expecting. I load it morning and evening........and that's good enough.
Wish I had done this years ago. Thanks. Hope you and your family are
Just sitting around on a lazy, rainy day. Been wondering how you were
doing and thought I would shoot you an email to see. We are getting some
fairly severe weather at the moment, hard rains, wind, and hail.
My wife and I are planning a trip to Michigan later this summer or early
fall, since I have all the wood we need for this heating season cut,
split, stacked, and ready to burn. We are looking forward to another
winter enjoying the comfort that the Fire Chief provides us. Thanks for
your second to none customer support and friendly way of which you do
As I mentioned we are planning to visit in Michigan and would very much
enjoy stopping by your place of business on our return home to meet you
Here comes the weather again. I need to go out and take a look at
God Bless You & your Family.

Subject: Julie & Jay HUGE Thank YOU
We wanted to let you know The OS2200 is the BEST investment in our
home we have ever made!!! This is the 1st time in 20 years the north end
of our house which is dining room kitchen bath & laundry area has EVER
been warm enough to call comfortable! Granted itís 20 outside right now
and Wed we are to going down to -9 degrees so we will see but Iím
betting it will be no problem. The Thermostat control is a HUGE plus I
wish your smaller units had then for our Kennel buildings. If they did
their would not be a wood furnace on the market that could even begin to
compare. I plan on telling everyone I know about you and this furnace.
As well as buying several more in the future. We loved the fact that you
worked with us and shared your knowledge and expertise as well. May God
Bless you and your Family for many years to come.

Being in the middle of the third heating season I wanted to let you know
that the Fire Chief 2200 we purchased from Mix Farms is doing an
excellent job of keeping our home warm and a place you look forward to
returning back to when you have been away for several hours.
Installation of the unit went extremely well and your willingness to
assist me if I ran into an issue was appreciated. The suggestions you
offered I found very valuable and It made my Fire Chief burn in a very
From the initial conversation I had with you, throughout the purchasing
process, and to the needed part I needed at the present time, I
discovered you have an exceptional knowledge of the Fire Chief line of
Not only were your prices cheaper than the local folks, your customer
service is second to none. You continue to offer us something that is
rapidly disappearing throughout this great nation, a genuine interest in
keeping your customers well-satisfied. Dennis, keep up the good work!

Dennis, Just wanted to let you guys know how pleased I am with the
FC1100E that I purchased from you in 2011. The quality of this unit is
excellent. I have friends that have similar furnaces and I don't think
they hold a candle to the FC1100E. I also wanted to let you know that
the customer service that you have provided for me when purchasing and
even after the sale was outstanding. I will let everybody I know if they
are going to purchase a wood furnace how great you all are at Mix Farms.
If and when I need another furnace you can bet that I will be talking to
you. Thank you again for your friendly service.
I wanted to let you know that with about a month of using the stove
under my belt I am nothing but satisfied. The stove heats my home with
ease. The operation of the stove is easy and the performance is
reliable. I would definitely recommend the Fire Chief line to anyone.
The installation was a breeze. The shipping damage that had occurred was
taken care of within a week. Fire Chief sent me a new top to replace the
Thanks for making the transaction a good one. Hopefully I can refer a
few people to you for some more sales.
Thanks again and best regards,
note: the above is an unsolicited testimonial from a client who was very
satisfied with the work we did for him.
Where to start? I had a old 90,000 BTU wood burner and a 105,000 BTU oil
furnace both and it had hard time keeping my home above 65 degrees and
now I'm oil free at $3.89 per gal with min of 400 gal of oil for the 5
months of winter it had me broke and I now use less then half the wood
burnt in a 24 hrs so in a cool day at 20 degrees my home is at a steady
75 degrees no hot and cool like a oil furnace . nice steady heat plus it
has a filter to clean the air and with no running to look at the wood
fire its good for at least 20-24 hrs on them cold days so the home is
warm when you get home .Plus everything come in the box and with pr
drilled holes ..with the 3/16'' fire box it will last 3 lifetimes its
like a tank made in the USA that show us we can still make good things
here at home. With your prices I saved over $900 on the stove alone and
over $500 on the shipping ..thank you guy for handling USA made stoves
instead of selling junk low cost stuff to us. You guys are doing a fine
job don't change a thing...wish we had more people in this world instead
of those who look to make a fast buck.

We were in the market to replace our old wood furnace that had been in
use for over 25 years. We went to all the big box stores and farm and
home stores and looked at their furnaces. We were not happy with any of
them. I heard of the Fire Chief brand and got on line and researched the
furnaces. We liked what we saw. I called the company and they referred
me to Dennis Mix at Mix Farms. I contacted Dennis and ordered an FC700,
which Dennis delivered. I set up the furnace myself and it was very easy
to get it all installed. We are in our third season with the FC700 and
it is working great! We get more heat from less wood. I really like
that. I highly recommend the Fire Chief furnace to anyone who needs a
new furnace or is building a new home. Dennis at Mix Farms has been a
great person to work with and seems like an old friend!

I'd rather buy local, or as local as I can, and your as local to me as it
gets. Farmers and small business owners or people are the backbone of
our country and would rather support them as much as I can. I got a corn
stove from you several years ago, you delivered it, and came by to make
sure it was working ok. That to me says you care about what you are
doing and what your selling. You had very reasonable prices and gave me
your bottom dollar right off the get go. Appreciate the what you did for
me when you sold it to me. Thanks.
