Classic Heat Source – Pellet Stoves, Wood Stoves and Gas Stoves in Portland


Classic Heat Source is a locally owned and operated specialty store that was founded on the principal of knowledgeable, old fashioned and personalized service. We are NOT a “franchise” store or part of any multi conglomerate chain store whose profits are sent out of the area in a group of investors. We are locally owned and operated right in the Pacific Northwest in Portland, Oregon. The founder and general manager, Fred Kirkpatrick, started in the hearth products industry in 1977 and is a member of the Oregon Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association. He has been responsible for product development and safety testing of several different hearth products including woodstoves, factory built (zero clearance) fireplaces, electrical components and chimney liners. Under his direct supervision, these products successfully completed International design standards and safety testing requirements at testing facilities including: Underwriters Laboratories, Warnook Hersey International (Intertek), Omni Environmental Services, and Terra Labs Inc. It is important to note that Classic Heat Source only sells Hearth and BBQ related products. We do not sell hot tubs, cowboy hats, horse shoes, pig chow, fence posts or a million other non Hearth related products. We are a Professional Hearth Outlet.

Remember the wise the old saying: “A jack of all trades is a master of none”!
