“Top quality along with excellent customer service skills – from initial information request and what will work best for a particular area, to installation recommendations” – Jenny Mosime

Hydrofire employs a team of exceptional talent. We have two fully qualified engineers, one of whom has a specialisation in heat transfer; and a central heating installations technician with a qualification in electrical engineering. As we are always working with heating systems, we take into account a number of important concepts such as convection, air movement, home orientation, insulation and potential heat losses in order to provide our customers with a solution that balances cost and performance.

We promote continuous learning through annual training sessions that take place during the off-peak season. Some of these accreditations Include Central Heating and Underfloor Heating Systems training in Italy, chimney systems training in Greece, and specialised fireplace training in Bulgaria. Hydrofire owner, Kristo Nikolov, attends at least one major European Heating Expo each year, in order to keep abreast with latest innovations and developments abroad.

Our suppliers

Hydrofire greatly values relationships. As a result, we choose to invest our time in selecting the best suppliers in Europe for high-efficiency wood burning fireplaces and stoves. We also buy directly from the source as this gives us greater quality- control and enables us to communicate directly with the people responsible for manufacturing the product. We have distributors throughout the country and have showrooms in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
