Currently located in Shipshewana, IN, Nature’s Comfort began in Lancaster, WI by Dave Nyhof and his son Eric in November of 2006. Their original interest in alternative heating and energy savings started during the 30 years Dave was in the domestic house construction market. Dave began by creating a corn heating system for his own use after the aggravation of not having the ability to keep their present system performing well. Soon after that he began selling another name brand of outdoor wood heating systems. After losing the ability to satisfy his sales orders, due to his suppliers not staying up to date with customer requirements, Dave developed his own alternative heating system to meet his responsibility to customer’s demands, and meet the quality expectations of from his clients.
The NCB-175 and NCB-250 were the very first designs constructed. These were the foundation for what evolved over the years as increasingly more demand came in for various heating needs.
The NCB-325 began manufacturing in 2007 and the NCB-120 in 2008 with the 325 being changed to the 325G in 2009 along with numerous enhancements and adjustments to all the NCB designs. The biggest advances were made in water flow for the best performance with the addition of making use of the Solid Works computer system software application with a Flow Express module for aesthetically seeing where water and air were really streaming. Controls were likewise considerably enhanced and created to be basic for setup, operation, fixing and replacement.
2009 brought the GT-220 for high performance, downdraft gasification smokeless burning and in 2010 Nature’s Comfort transferred to Shipshewana, IN to be centrally located and closer to the fabrication plants in the heart of Amish country with their strong work ethic and pride in the quality of their workmanship.
Constantly aiming to provide even more items for the alternative energy market, the NC-40 pellet stove was contributed to the item lineup in early 2010 with the NC-30 following later on in the year. 2012 brought solar water heating systems with the SM-H60 developed for use in combination with an outdoor boiler and the SM-V30 filling applications as a standalone system.
