Alternative Energy opened in June 2003. We carry a full line of wood, gas, propane, and pellet stoves, fireplaces, and inserts by companies such as Regency, Hampton, and Excalibur, as well as Security Fireplace.
Our Staff will assist you in any way we can to help determine the proper size unit for your home or cottage, in a style suited to your tastes and decor. We will also come to your home or cottage and give you a personalized assessment of what would need to be done, at not cost or obligation to you!
About the Owner
From the years 1979 – 2002, I installed woodstoves, fireplaces, inserts, and chimneys for Wood ‘n’ Energy locations in Ottawa, Kingston, and MacDonald’s Corners. With over 39 years experience, I will be able to correctly assess what your home will require to heat efficiently.
During that same time period, I operated Clean Sweep, a chimney sweeping business serving Perth, Smiths Falls, Carleton Place, as well as other communities as far away as Calabogie, Merrickville, Sharbot Lake, and Ompah.
I became WETT certified when the program was started in 1988. WETT Certification is a program which, among other things, properly trains people on chimney sweeping, building code requirements, and determining if there are any other problems with your chimney that may affect its performance, or your safety.
With many insurance companies today requiring that chimneys be swept and/or inspected by someone who is WETT Certified, you can rest assured knowing that this will be completed by us properly and professionally.
