Hearth - stoves, inserts and fireplaces

It can be overwhelming making a decision on a hearth product. Will it be wood, pellet or gas? Will it be a stove, insert or fireplace? What about cast iron versus plate steel? How important are efficiency ratings? What colors are available? Will I need a new chimney? Do I need a certified installer? And the list goes on.

At Alternatives our primary goal is to assist you in making the right decision for your particular situation. We want you to be confident with your decision and enjoy the outcome for years to come.

The fact that we have been in business for almost 40 years is testimony that we have been successful in working with our customers in making good decisions. There are three reasons for this:

  • Our knowledgeable staff.


  • The fact that we carry all the hearth products, so have no biases and we carry only high quality brand names. Names like Pacific Energy, Enviro, Vermont Castings, Valor, Majestic, and Jotul.


  • To help you get started on your journey, we set out points to consider when evaluating each of the hearth product options. We then suggest you take a look at the manufacturer web sites to see and learn about the wonderful products that are available.

Come and see us, at 621 Rothesay Ave, Saint John, New Brunswick.
