About Us

The Alaskan Fireplace Company is a family-owned, brick-and-mortar specialty hearth retailer located in Southeast Wisconsin.  We have been selling and installing hearth products from Heat & Glo, Heatilator and Quadra-fire since 1991.  Because of our proven track record of being Heat & Glo’s™ largest national seller of it’s popular Grate Heater product line, The Alaskan Fireplace Company was awarded exclusive distribution rights for North America.

Please visit our store’s website at www.alaskanfireplace.com.  The Grate Heater was invented by Ron and Dan Shimek (the founding fathers of Heat & Glo) in 1977.  The original design has withstood the test of time and is still being used today.  It was the second product made by Heat & Glo and used the same concept as the first H&G product, the freestanding wood fireplace with Heat tubes for internal heat exchange.
