Fuego Flame, also called Flint Cliffs Manufacturing, is the maker of the Fuego brand of fireplaces and is based in Burlington, Iowa. Fuego markets a line of dual use (gas and wood) fireplaces and accessories. The company is not a large company and does not have as extensive factories or production as many of the big fireplace manufacturers. However, the company has developed a couple of key, innovative products that are sold at dealers nationwide.
Fuego, means fire in Spanish and has a nice ring to it for a fireplace brand. Perhaps appropriately, the company's brand is denoted by a burning flame. The company focuses on a few main products and prides itself on the fuel efficiency and heat production capability of its products.
All of the Fuego fireplaces are dual use. This means that they can be converted to use either gas or to use wood as the predominant fuel type. In addition, the company also makes a range of fireplace accessories and doors to complement its fireplaces. The company's fireplaces are broken down into three types of products and these types are listed in the sections below.
Fuego's zero clearance fireplace offers the benefits of an efficient fireplace. It can be installed without taking up a lot of space and can also be converted to either gas or wood burning. The fireplace is vented through the top and returns hot air into the home through the area above the fire box.
Fuego's see through or two sided fireplace provides unique option for a home. While also dual use and efficient, you can enjoy the fireplace from two areas of the home and it contains a pretty wide opening to view the fire and area behind it. It also has a patented air flow system.
Fuego's fireplace inserts are designed to adapt an existing fireplace and give the old area new life. Fuego's inserts are also dual use and are touted by the company as extremely efficient.
Fuego is a smaller producer of fireplaces and consequently is still building out the company's dealer network. The company sells products through contractors and dealer and offers a discount for contractors as an incentive to work with the dealers. Most of the company's fireplaces are installed by contractors.
In terms of warranties, the company offers a 20 year limited warranty on the fireplace itself. However, the other wearable parts of the unit are not covered under this warranty. The warranty service, like most other fireplace companies, must be performed by a valid contractor.
