Historic Johnson Gas Appliance Company
Mendota’s award-winning gas fireplaces and gas fireplace inserts are designed and built by the Mendota® Hearth division of Johnson Gas Appliance Co. For more than 110 years, Johnson Gas has been a leader in gas technologies. Founded in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in 1901, that’s where the headquarters of our family-owned company remain today.
In addition to quality hearth products, Johnson Gas designs and manufactures a diverse range of gas-powered appliances. Fortune 500 companies such as Ford, Boeing and General Electric use our line of heat treating furnaces to make everything from automobiles to appliances better and safer. Johnson Gas also manufactures heat treating, metal melting and soldering furnaces for industry and school shops.
Building on their history of creating highly efficient and reliable gas products, Mendota puts that knowledge into every hearth product they make. Only Mendota combines century-old craftsmanship with their exclusive BurnGreen™ technology to offer today’s efficiency and convenience. You can be confident your Mendota fireplace will provide you with a lifetime of comfort—and luxury where you live.
Mendota® BurnGreen™ Program
Mendota’s environmentally friendly, sealed combustion, direct vent fireplaces with the BurnGreen™ system are designed to meet exacting governmental EPA standards, as well as national LEED® and NAHB guidelines for high efficiency and low emissions.
BurnGreen™ means burning smarter, giving you choices to conserve fuel and help the environment. The versatile BurnGreen™ system lets you turn the burners and the pilot on and off, adjust the heat and blower output – and even turn off the rear burner on mild days. You can also control room temperature using the remote control’s digital thermostat. And tit’s all done with the touch of a button.
