Buying a Fireplace during COVID

Unlike most products, it is difficult to purchase a fireplace online fully. This is because fireplaces are highly complex appliances that need to be tailored to each home and project. Unfortunately, COVID19 has made traditional retail interactions more complicated than they would have been in the past. However, fireplace dealers have taken the challenge, and many have transformed their sales process to blend virtual sales and in-person consultations in a way that is safe and comfortable for all parties involved.

Did You Know: Many fireplace showrooms are still open by appointment. This allows you to see a live burning display still and touch your new fireplace before you buy.
The best ways to buy a fireplace during COVID19:
  • Use online tools for research
  • Book an Appointment at your local fireplace shop
  • Email or Call the fireplace store to set up a virtual consultation
