Fireside has specialized in doing business with contractors and home builders here in Central Oregon for more than 25 years. We have several people on our staff that specialize in working with contractors, home builders and their home designers or architects.
Unlike most HVAC businesses and other retail stores, our Fireside personnel have significant fireplace factory training and experience. Additionally, they are among the few hearth personnel in Central Oregon certified by the National Fireplace Institute and by the Oregon State Fire Marshall’s office for propane appliances (#000641-05). Fireside’s management has also been a licensed Oregon contractor for many years.
Our fireplace industry has two categories of fireplaces, commodity and premium. The commodity fireplaces are available from many sources and allow the home owner to say, “yes, the house has a fireplace” and little else. Typical commodity fireplaces come from Majestic, Lennox, Monessen and others. These brands are now beginning to develop somewhat better fireplaces to try to compete with quality brands like Fireplace Xtrordinair and Heat-N-Glo.
Premium fireplaces offer many significant advantages over commodity fireplaces including dramatic fire views, high efficiency, great styling and durability. They are available from specific retailers that have invested in the installation and service departments and significant retail displays to demonstrate their many features and benefits.
We specialize in higher value, premium fireplaces. These are the industry leading products that you don’t normally see at HVAC operations and other retail businesses. Additionally, we have very competitive prices on commodity fireplaces and can usually match the quotes that you might receive from Portland fireplace distributors. Our recently expanded showroom has dozens of gas and wood burning fireplaces on display and burning. Many of our new, premium fireplaces have features that most people have never seen. These fireplaces are designed to provide the latest fireplace features and benefits expected in nicer, custom homes.
Contractor discounts are available for licensed contractors that have a current and approved charge account. A volume rebate program is also available and has provided many contractors with significant end of the year rebate checks. Be sure to stop by, introduce yourself and fill out an account application. Also check out the many new fireplaces on display.
Whether you are buying 50 low priced fireplaces, or your client selects a premium Fireplace Xtrordinair, Heat-N-Glo, Valor, or Town & Country fireplace, we provide you with the quality installation and service support that your clients deserve.
