Meaning of Hearth Solutions: Products & Services

Before you buy, educating yourself on the products and services available in the marketplace will ensure the success of your project. This section starts that education process so that you’re more prepared and better aware of what your options are. And most importantly, so that your expectations will be met.

Hearth Products

Most commonly  thought of as fire-burning appliances for your home that add ambiance, act as a supplemental heat source, or a combination of the two; however, Hearth Products may also include items that are designed to enhance or complement an existing Hearth Appliance.

Hearth Professional

An individual or organization with years of experience, an NFI Certification, and the resources needed to safely design and integrate a hearth solution into your home. Taking shortcuts and chances when you are putting “live-fire” into your home is not a good idea! Why would you jeopardize you and your family’s safety by not using a Hearth Professional like Best Fire Hearth & Patio to install your hearth project?
