Gas Fireplaces Save Energy

Gas fireplaces and stoves are a beautiful addition to any home.  They burn either propane or natural gas. They are clean, cost-effective, and require little maintenance. Gas fireplaces are easy to use, and can be installed in almost any room of your home.  The beauty of a gas fireplace or stove has become one of the most desired features in a home.

Benefits to an EPA certified gas fireplace:

There are many benefits to installing a fireplace that is certified by the Environmental Protection Agency as an energy efficient unit:

Safety: You don’t have to worry about creosote buildup in the chimney or chimney fires, and there are no sparks to jump out and burn your floors. You can vent them through an existing chimney.

Environmentally Friendly:  Gas fireplaces and stoves reduce the pollutants and particles emitted into the air by up to 99 percent compared to that of wood burning units.

Convenience: With the flip of a switch, or by thermostatic control, your natural gas unit is instantly on. You won’t have to go outside to collect firewood or wait for the fire to die down before going to bed. There are even gas stoves that do not require a power source, and will work when your power is out!

Beauty: Gas fireplaces and stoves are beautiful and add a stunning focal point to nearly any room of your home. They are very desirable and add marketability to your home.

Economy: Save energy by using your fireplace instead of the furnace to warm your room. Natural gas can cost as little as 25 percent of the cost of burning wood.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a U.S. federal holiday and is celebrated on the last Monday of May to honor the men and women who have died while serving in the military.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the custom of honoring ancestors by cleaning cemeteries and decorating graves is an ancient and worldwide tradition, but the specific origin of Memorial Day, or Decoration Day as it was first known, are unclear.

In early rural America, this duty was usually performed in late summer and was an occasion for family reunions and picnics. After the Civil War, America’s need for a secular, patriotic ceremony to honor its military dead became prominent, as monuments to fallen soldiers were erected and dedicated, and ceremonies centering on the decoration of soldiers’ graves were held in towns and cities throughout the nation.

After World War I, the day expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars.  Read more…

Won’t you please join us in honoring those men and women who lost their lives while faithfully serving our country and may God bless us all.

Water Garden Close-Out


With heavy hearts we announced in February that we will be stepping out of the water garden business.

We have tried our online water garden store “The Water Garden Bug” and just cannot compete in the online world. We also have not been able to secure the employees that are needed to be able to build and service water gardens.

Our retail store Sierra Hearth & Home is NOT closing and we are still in full service of Hearth appliances. We continue to Sell, Service and Install Professional Hearth products.

We will be closing out all of our water garden product that we have in stock and are offering a 40% discount on all in-store water garden products.

We thank you for your support and your trust in us as your water garden service provider for these past 11 years, we truly appreciate all of our wonderful customers.
