Central Boiler traces its roots back to 1984 in a workshop just south of Greenbush, Minnesota. There, a single idea and some welded pieces of metal would grow into a company that is recognized today as North America's largest manufacturer of outdoor furnaces, and one of the largest manufacturers in northwestern Minnesota. The company's innovations and patents come from people who take a little more time, pay a little more attention and go a little further to make sure that every Central Boiler product is ready to meet the demands of the real world.

Hydronic radiant floor systems pump heated water from a boiler through tubing laid in a pattern under the floor. In some systems, controlling the flow of hot water through each tubing loop by using zoning valves or pumps and thermostats regulates room temperatures.
