Dudley Hussong, Chairman of the Board, established Kozy Heat® during 1976 in his father’s millwork shop in southern Minnesota. The first Kozy Heat product was a wood-burning fireplace that was created as a more efficient way to heat the shop during the fuel embargo.
The word spread around town and a local contractor later persuaded Hussong to build another, and then another for local homes. Kozy Heat soon became known as a high-quality, energy-efficient home heating supplement. Within two years, Kozy Heat was selling fireplaces throughout Minnesota.
Jim Hussong, President, joined his father full time in 1984. The two became a team with Jim concentrating on expanding the sales and marketing division, whereas Dudley remained focused researching and developing new products. Together they have created distribution and representation nationwide with a full product line of both wood and gas fireplaces.
Heather and Hannah Hussong joined their father full time in 2014. Kozy Heat is a three-generational business that is family owned and operated. Throughout the expansion of the company and changes in products, the commitment to quality and efficiency remained constant as nationally recognized wood and gas fireplace manufacturers.
Kozy Heat is proud to offer this product from our family to yours as we continue to add to our line of wood and gas fireplaces.
