Igniting the Joy of Fire

Our History

Our History

Why did you start Southern Utah Fireplaces?

My career in the hearth industry started as a 13 year old entrepreneur in Morgan, Utah as a chimney sweeper. In 1988, my family moved to Southern Utah where my father opened The Fireside Home Center. Our company sold, installed, serviced, and repaired wood, gas, and pellet fireplaces, stoves and inserts for the next 20 years. While managing the business for my father, I started my own hearth service business and put my name to it - Shaun’s Fireplace Service.

After the closure of Fireside’s storefront in December 2008, I eventually opened my own retail near that place on Sunset Blvd. In 2011, Shaun’s Fireplace Service became Southern Utah Fireplaces. The History of Southern Utah Fireplaces is rich with deep associations with our existing customers and we love to add to new and exciting friends to our family each day.

Although I offer different brands of fireplaces, I am St. George’s authorized dealer of Napoleon Fireplaces, an amazing company with a complete line of high quality and highly efficient hearth products.
