NortHeat Hearth & Home is a full service specialty hearth retailer and distributor that recently moved to a new location at the corner of Dowling Road and Petersburg Street, next to Los Arcos Mexican Restaurant.
Our new showroom has on display over 100 Fireplaces, Inserts, Stoves, Heaters and Grills, including 30 built-in burn models. For your venting needs, we stock complete chimney systems for wood, oil and gas. In addition, we carry accessories, parts and maintenance items to insure the safe installation and operation of your decorative heating appliance.
Choose from a variety of heating options that include cord wood, pellets, natural gas, propane, oil, and even electricity. If after visiting our showroom and talking to one of our knowledgeable sales people, you are still not sure of what will work best in your home, cabin or place of business, please request a professional on site evaluation. There is no cost or obligation for this service within the Anchorage area. If so requested, a free estimate for delivery and/or installation can be provided at that time.
NortHeat Hearth & Home is an Alaskan owned and operated company. We began selling quality cast iron wood stoves in Anchorage back in 1977. This was due, in part, to the OPEC oil embargo that began in October of 1973 and ended in March of 1974. During that short period of time the price of a barrel of oil went from $3 to nearly $12. By 1980, the price had risen to over $39 a barrel and homeowners everywhere were actively looking for an alternative to heating with oil.
It was in 1980 that NortHeat moved to Chugach Way in Spenard. We shared this location with the Anchorage Recycling Center. In 1984 we moved again, this time across the street from the old Division of Motor Vehicles on Dowling Road. We remained there for 29 years. The realization that we had outgrown this location was evident when we could no longer display the growing selection of quality hearth products we were selling, so in 2013 we moved once more, but this time only a half block to the west, into a much larger facility on the corner of Dowling Road and Petersburg Street.
