The HPBA Needs Your Help Right Now!

Monday, May 22, 2017

HPBA logo

The Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA) is conducting a jobs numbers survey of the entire U.S. wood heat industry (members and non-members) and we need your help right now.

Important: Your responses will not be shared and your company won’t be identified. Results will be aggregated into an analysis.

Why? In order to better understand the overall burden imposed on our industry, the new administration wants to know more about the size of our industry and how many jobs we provide in the U.S. HPBA needs your input, in this short, 30-second survey about how many jobs you provide at your business. If you don’t respond to this survey, we may understate the true size of the industry.

It is very important that you fill out this survey if you sell or handle at least one solid fuel hearth appliance (i.e. a wood or pellet stove or insert, hydronic heater, wood furnace) so that the true size of our industry can be represented.

As a thank you for your time, you will be the first to receive the results.
