About us

Our company

Condar has long been a respected leader in the hearth industry. Founded 35 years ago, Condar’s humble beginnings centered around a singular goal: to develop the first practical thermometer that could be mounted on the hot surface of a woodstove flue pipe, and still record accurate temperatures. The effort was successful. Condar’s innovative thermometer design was awarded a United States Patent.

Today, Condar is the leading manufacturer of thermometers for woodstoves, offering a variety of designs suitable for any woodstove installation, and used by millions of homeowners around the world. The Condar brand has expanded to include an extensive line of quality products for hearth and home, as you will discover by browsing this website.

Furthermore, Condar has a long-standing commitment to responsible environmental practices. In the early 1990s, Condar played an important role in the Environmental Protection Agency’s research and development efforts to control air pollution from woodstoves. Since the adoption of national standards in 1995, Condar has been the leading fabricator of catalytic combustors designed to virtually eliminate particulate emissions.

When you order Condar’s award-winning products, you can be sure you are getting expert engineering, innovative designs, and unsurpassed durability. Condar is an independently owned company where folks take pride in their work. Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina, Condar is dedicated to quality North American manufacturing. The Condar staff emphasizes efficient, professional customer service, delivering trustworthy value, to earn your business “one order at a time.” And as an experienced exporter, Condar regularly ships products all over the world.
