    HPBExpo 2013 – Change of Venue

feedback bosHPBA was informed in early January that the new Music City Convention Center n Nashville, TN would not be completed in time for the March 2013 show.

HPBA found that Orlando was available, and the Board of Directors voted to hold the show there March 13-16, 2013.

    NEW– Valve Vanisher™ with EIS
Rasmussen has created the Valve Vanisher ™ as the solution to three main issues with Electronic Ignition Systems installed inside the fireplace:

              1. The "Big Ugly Box"
              2. The Big Ugly box requires that the gas log set be downsized in order to center the set; otherwise, the log set is off-centered. Either way, the aesthetics of the gas log set and fireplace are less than desirable.
              3. The components are very heat sensitive.

              With the Valve Vanisher, Rasmussen has taken the components of the Big Ugly Box and located them underneath the gas log set. The VV raises the log set up just 2 5/8". The control valve is located on the right, and the control module on the left; both are in cool zones proven by extensive testing.

              pic5A penny saved is not a penny earned. To business owners, a penny saved is a nickel, dime, or more earned. Let us explain: If you have a 10% profit margin, you need to generate $1,000 in new sales to net the same profit as cutting $100 in expenses. Thus a dime saved is a dollar earned.

                Customer Testimonials

              Here are a few of our most recent testimonials we'd like to share:

              "I just wanted to let you know that I got the part for my 27" Solaire before Christmas. I installed it easily thanks to your instructions and the cleverly simple design of the grill. So now you can tell other buyers that replacing parts is "so easy even a 66 year old woman can do it." Thanks again!"
              – Noel T., St. Augustine, FL


              "Hi Rich,
              I received my (3) replacement infrared burners for my 27" Petite Solaire grill. Everything looks great and it FITS….yeah! I wanted to say just how satisfied I am with Rasmussen products and especially its customer service. You are one of the most customer service oriented people I have ever worked with and you sure know how to take care of your customers. You are a valuable assets to Rasmussen and probably the biggest reason I will continue to do business with Rasmussen."

              – Scott, S., Raleigh, NC


              "I needed someone to help me restart my pilot light on my Rasmussen logs. I called and just spoke to Felix. Felix was extremely helpful and most patient with me. I wanted the company to know that I appreciated Felix's help and most of all his encouragement to get the job done. He wasn't going to let me hang up without being successful. Thank you!!"
              – Mary N.,


              "My Solaire Anywhere is by far the best portable grill on the market and it's made in the USA."
              – Doug A., Port Charlotte, FL
