THESE are the answers to our two most common Questions “Where are you located and Are the reviews true?”


I’m Christopher Robin Hetherington, owner of Robin’s Construction Services Ltd O/A (operating as) Fireplace West. We have been a heating contractor, early 80’s and exclusively gas fireplaces since 2012. My company is totally family at present with myself, brother Dana and young son Matt,

We are online at Fireplacewest.ca, use online software and estimates, sales pics are off my iPad. We do not have a store but our shop is outside of Carp.   We sell and install in Ottawa, Orleans, Stittsville, Barrhaven, Bridlewood and Kanata.

Our mission is none to zero warranty work. To achieve this, we sell and install only three of four top Canadian brands, Napoleon, Regency, Savannah and lately a lot of Valor gas inserts. We believe in products that are lo tech, simple design and keep working EVEN WITHOUT ELECTRICITY. CLIENTS like us for our great personal service.


HomeStars is Canada’s largest digital service provider connecting business and homeowners. They have a database of over 2 million companies. We have won 6 BEST OF HOMESTARS (2021), 2GIVING BACK AWARDS and are HomeStars VERIFIED. VERIFIED is a very intrusive 3rd party review checking our credit, licences and a criminal background check.

They say we offer timely service, do amazing finishing and work to budget every time. What is not mentioned often enough is the fireplaces really make a difference to the comfort factor of their home. It is called Zone Heating where the you heat the area where you spend most of your time. A Vermont Castings “Radiance” gas stove is the best thing about my personal family room/kitchen, always first on and last off as we go to bed.
