They opened their doors in 1997, and unlike many family owned businesses, their doors have stayed open and have welcomed homeowners and contractors in for over 17 years. That says a lot about a business. Casey Kish and Parrish Stanton have succeeded in making their customers continue to come back to for their heating, cooling and just about everything that makes a house a home.

If you are like me, finding a way to bring natural light into my home is a challenge. When we built this old house, the heat calculations would only allow for so many windows, so rooms like my guest bath are kind of gloomy. The folks at Sierra Home Alternative have a solution for dark rooms called the Solatube, which allows you to bring natural light affordably into just about any room.

Comfort and convenience are present all throughout their showroom. With the “flick of a switch” you can heat your living room with a beautiful gas fireplaces or maybe add torches with a mesmerizing swirling flame to enhance your outside living space. If cooling your home is a problem during those blistering summer months, and running an air conditioner just isn’t in the budget, there are a number of window and patio treatments to consider. Their wide product offering not only makes your home more comfortable but they save you money.

“In today’s economy, saving energy is so important. Households throughout the county are looking for ways to stretch their dollar,” said Casey Kish, who along with his sister, Parrish, own the iconic Sierra Home Alternatives  business. “The cost of gas has a lot of people going back to wood burning.” Kish admits that people will still be using propane as well as pellets for home heating, but will be more conscious of efficiency and the ongoing cost of operation. With today’s highly efficient, clean burning wood products folks are realizing this is where the ongoing  saving will come from.

So as summer approaches and your “to-do” list grows; are you wondering where do you start? You start by visiting Sierra Home Alternatives and inviting them out for a free in-home estimate. Ask their dedicated staff, with over 50 years of experience, the questions you’ve been curious about. What kind of clearances are needed to install a wood stove? What would it take to replace that old out-dated hearth?  How much will my project cost?

While at this year’s El Dorado County Home and Garden Show stop by their booth and see how they can help you make your home more comfortable and save.

For more information call 530-626-6643, check out their Website at Sierrahomealternatives.com or visit their beautiful showroom located at 237 Placerville Dr.
