SUNHEAT International started as and has continued to be a family owned and operated business. From the time Mae and Hubert Rookstool founded the company, they knew success was predicated on offering the best products on the market coupled with unparalleled service to the consumer.

The spirit of innovation has been the driving force of the business since Ted Rookstool's family opened the doors in 1954. The company was founded in North Platte, Nebraska; relocated to Grand Island, Nebraska in the 1960's, experienced a regional expansion in the 1970's and has continued to grow their presence in mom and pop brick and mortar stores as well as online.  

SUNHEAT has expanded their product lineup over recent years to consist of many new products including Made in USA infrared heaters, air purifiers, infrared saunas, patented infrared fireplaces, electric and propane patio heaters, unique air cooling systems, massage chairs and much more. Now in its third generation, Josh Rookstool continues on the family tradition with award winning customer service and offering only the best quality products on the market, which is why it is no wonder over half of all sales come from repeat loyal customers or referrals!
