A complete solution from start to finish
Biothermic is a national company supplying all Canadian provinces and territories with world-leading wood heating systems from Fröling and Polytechnik. We merge top technology from Austria with North American heating system components to provide turnkey products for our clients.
Modern wood heating is in place and proven in many European countries, but Canada still views wood heating as just fireplaces and outdoor boilers. Modern wood heating offers centralized heating using low-cost, renewable fuels while maintaining total control and without creating smoke pollution.
Biothermic brings modern wood heating to Canada with well-designed, well-built, smart and complete heating systems.
Whether you're just learning about the benefits of modern wood heating or investigating potential equipment options, we are available to help you understand the technology. Our clients include homeowners, businesses, institutions and entire communities. We can with pre feasibility for small heating system or a larger, multiple boiler heating system.
We offer far more than just the supply of a boiler. With every system, we offer customized boiler hydronic schematics and designs for whole building in-floor heating and radiant systems. We maintain a library of hydronic schematics for all boiler configurations available to our customers.
To see a wood heating system installed, we will work with either our network of technicians or we can work directly with a company of your choosing. We are absolutely devoted to seeing that every system is designed, installed and commissioned correctly to ensure maximum efficiency.
As the modern wood heating market grows, supply of fuel can sometimes be challenging. We help our customers consider all aspects of fuel flow and purchasing, linking wood chip and pellet suppliers to projects. We offer graded wood chip supply in the Thunder Bay region.
