Mendota Gas Inserts

With the exact look and feel of a wood burning fireplace, Mendota’s award-winning log fire will quickly become the focal point of your room. The unique FullView design places the fire on the hearth, with no telltale louvers or raised platform to hide the controls. In the end, there’s just you and the beautiful fire—the way the experience was always meant to be. Best of all, every Mendota insert is an ANSI/AGA certified high efficiency wall furnace that adjusts from a roaring fire with lots of heat to the lazy flames of a romantic late night campfire with the touch of a button. And it’s all done in an environmentally responsible way.

  • "In the search for a high quality BBQ grill, I ended up at SH&P. I appreciated getting greeted when I entered but given the space to look around and take it all in. The showroom is impressive! I don't mind paying premium money for premium products and after I received accurate information regarding the Fire Magic grill, my perspective switched from "premium" to value! Clay and his staff are great! Their product selection was a little to good because I left with a Yoder Smoker also. 6 weeks later I could not be more happy with my purchases. I did well on a grill before, but the Fire Magic takes it to another level. The smoker makes me look like I have years of experience, it performs flawlessly. I had one issue with my grill and Clay's service technician fixed it the next day and I live in Cleveland, TN. Under warranty of course. That type of service is nearly a thing in past except for SH&P!" - Warren D. Cleveland, Tn.
