The oldest type of heating system still in use is the fireplace. We can trace the history of fireplaces back to castles in the middle ages, where fires were removed from large central hearths and placed into chambers set into the walls. This better directed the heat, and also provided radiant warmth from the stones and bricks around the hearth.
Of course, today few homes use a fireplace as the main way they receive heat during the winter. Furnaces, boilers, and heat pumps handle that job. But the fireplace hasn’t vanished! Now it offers beauty to a home, a gathering place, a source of wintertime relaxation. And yes, extra heat as well. If you live throughout the North Central, IN areas, there’s a great place you can come for your fireplace needs: Collier's Fireplace Shoppe. Our fireplace contractors not only offer multiple fireplace services, but our Fireplace Shoppe carries over 20 burning fireplace displays for installation.

They installed a new custom mantle over our fireplace. Ryan was great from start to finish. Thanks, Collier's!
They installed a New Design Specialties door with a screen on my fireplace. Looks great!
