Embers has provided the finest grill and hearth products and services to Northeast Ohio since 2004

Proudly serving Greater Cleveland for over 14 years

We are hearth and home experts; our employees each average 12 years of experience in the industry. Our technicians are certified by the National Fireplace Institute, the principal organization responsible for establishing meaningful credentials for professionals involved in planning and installing residential hearth appliances and venting systems.

From our technicians, to our sales staff, to management and ownership, we are committed to constantly perfecting our craft to ensure that our customer’s expectations are exceeded.

Embers has exclusively been a fireplace and grill shop since we opened our doors in 2004.

Our Core Values

  • Brand Selection The hearth industry is shrinking. Over the past decade, small manufacturers have merged into larger corporations causing challenges when legacy equipment needs maintenance or repair. We offer products from manufacturers that stay committed to their customers after the sale, by providing technical support and parts availability - even if the product is no longer produced.
  • Our Focus Embers is a fireplace and grill shop. We are not a pool & spa shop, a patio shop, a hardware store, or a landscaping and decorative pond installer. Since 2004, Embers has remained focused on selling and installing fireplaces and grills. Because of this, we maintain a high standard of expertise and service without the distraction of selling merchandise unrelated to our core business.
  • Sales Philosophy The moment a customer walks into our showrooms, we are focused on gaining a deep understanding of their requirements for their fireplace or grill. We're eager to address all questions our customer may have, as we feel a well educated consumer is necessary in providing the right solution for them, and it will be enjoyed for many years to come.
  • Quality Installation After our customer makes their product selection, our staff quickly addresses requirements to prepare for installation. We strive to giving our customers an installation timeline they can trust will be accurate.

    On the day of installation, our team of skilled technicians and installers will be prompt and careful to keep the customer’s home as clean as when we first arrived. All safety codes and industry standards will be strictly adhered to in order to ensure products are installed correctly and safely.
  • Continued Support At Embers, we want customers for life. We invite our customers to never hesitate to contact if they need assistance after the sale.

    While selling high quality products is the first step towards how long they will last, proper maintenance is critical to keeping your hearth appliance safe and efficiently. Our NFI certified technicians can provide annual service, maintenance, and properly diagnose any issues that may have developed over the years.

After a year at the new location, sales at the Mentor location are double of the previous Painesville location!

Partnership With Kozy Heat

Embers becomes an authorized dealer for Kozy Heat Fireplaces. Founded in 1976, Kozy Heat is family-owned company in Minnesota. Known for some of the most alluring flame patterns in the industry, high quality, and exceptional support.

Over that past decade, the hearth product industry has evolved. Many brands have shifted their focus to internet sales, and many manufacturers have merged into larger corporations. Because of this, repair parts and support for legacy equipment can be difficult to source.

Kozy Heat has fought industry trends by proving itself committed to supporting their legacy products.

Embers' partnership with Kozy Heat is critical for our success. To this day, Embers sells Kozy Heat products with confidence.
