Wood and Gas Inserts
Upgrading your fireplace with a insert is a great, easy, and affordable way to restore life into your old fireplace. Inserts go into pre-existing fireplaces to provide a more efficient heat that is easier to light and maintain. We carry gas fireplace inserts, wood, and pellet inserts that offer a range of styles, sizes, and control. Installment of a new insert is usually done in less than 4 hours and can be used immediately after, so you can enjoy the warm glow of a real fire that same day.

Valor was started in Birmingham, London in 1890 as a manufacturer of oil storage containers and paraffin (kerosene) and gas heaters. Valor partnered with Miles Industries, a Canadian home heating industry leader, in 1984 and created the first direct vent room sealed fireplace, a game changer in home heating.
Quickly becoming the largest distributor in Canada and the Pacific Northwest, Miles Industry approached Valor in 1999 requesting to be the manufacturer of Valor products. Since then, Valor has become one of the most well known names for fireplaces and inserts and is the only company that features HeatShift™ technology. HeatShift directly vents heat over your hearth or TV, protecting them from becoming too hot.

Started in 1975 by two brothers, Ron and Dan Shimek, who were tinkering around in Ron’s garage. In 1987, Heat & Glo introduced the direct vent gas fireplace that made it possible to install a fireplace safely in virtually any room in the home. Practically overnight, the hearth industry changed from primarily wood-burning to direct vent fireplaces that were gas-operated.
In the years that followed, Heat & Glo’s continued innovations produced numerous patented technologies that confirmed the company’s position as industry leader. This relentless pursuit of improvement resulted in some of the most unique, realistic, and efficient fireplaces on the market.
