Who are we?

Real people in a real location providing great customer service since 1976

We are not part of some internet conglomerate with 4500 domain names pointing to different websites with questionable policies and customer service. We know the fireplace & home hearth business. We have lived it for 30 years. We choose & carry products that work for our customers. We are the real deal.

Fireplaces Plus was established in August of 1976 in Encinitas, California by Rick Patterson. In December of 1979 he was joined by his wife Janie, and together they have owned and operated the store for 29 years. Rick Patterson set a precedent of hard work, customer service and cutting edge technology.

In February of 2000, the owners decided to make a move from a small Encinitas fireplace shop to a larger and more centrally located warehouse in the La Costa Meadows Industrial Center off Rancho Santa Fe Road. With over 11,000 square feet of building, Rick and Janie expanded their product line, designed a giant burning display area, and trained more employees to serve the needs of the growing population of north San Diego county.

Today Fireplaces Plus houses hundreds of displays and the largest inventory of hearth accessories in San Diego County. The philosophy of this company remains the same: treat every customer as a friend, every question as important and every contact with the community as an opportunity to serve. Thank you for your years of patronage and we will strive to give you the best the hearth industry has to offer.


One of the ways to identify a competent specialist is to check their credentials. The National Fireplace Institute®, an independent, non-profit certification agency, has created the standard for certification in the hearth industry. Only those who pass a rigorous examination covering fundamentals of proper installation receive NFI Specialist Certification.

We have 4 certified professionals on staff.
