With more than 30 years of success on the mountain and in the business, Buck Energy Fireplaces owner Nolan Calkins, credits the long-term success to Fred Webster. Webster opened the business in 1983 after moving to the mountain for full retirement in 1982. According to Calkins, Webster saw an opportunity to open up a wood stove shop, and the business took off from there.

The motto for Buck Energy Fireplaces is to keep mountain residents warm and, to that end, it has been “keeping mountain residents warm since 1983.” Calkins said that Buck Energy offers clients “fair prices, quality products, reliable service and professional work.”

Some of the brands that can be found at Buck Energy include Regency, Napoleon, Heatilator, Heat & Glo, and Vermont Castings, “just to name a few,” Calkins said.

Buck Energy provides customers with fireplace logs and fireplace upgrades, as well. A long line of hearth and patio accessories is also available.

All together, the Buck Energy team has years of experience in helping homeowners achieve their dream fireplace, refurbish and modernize existing fireplaces, as well as assisting with additions.

“We clean, service, repair, replace, restore, install and sell,” Calkins said. He added that they do this for “fireplaces, stoves, inserts, gas logs, BBQs, fire pits and patio heaters.”

Buck Energy Fireplaces is a fully licensed construction company that can help turn your cold room into a warm and comfortable environment. Whether it is a small project or a full start-to-finish project, Calkins and the rest of the Buck Energy team treats each in the most professional manner possible.

The dedicated professionals at Buck Energy are what makes the business thrive and work. “We are able to employ locals who are in need of work, which helps our schools, local businesses and local economy as a whole,” Calkins said. “We also donate services and items to our local charities, schools and churches.”

Buck Energy Fireplaces provides services for the mountain communities ranging from Crestline to Big Bear. Inside Buck Energy’s showroom, customers will find a display of fireplaces, inserts and free-standing stoves, with a range of features and prices.

The showroom is just a taste of the work that Calkins and his team can do for your fireplace. Calkins manages the showroom and is available to present the works to those interested in fireplace maintenance, or in a complete remodel of what they have now.

The showroom serves as a powerful selling feature by putting on display the fireplaces and stoves that can be purchased and installed in customers’ homes. Buck Energy even has several operating fireplaces and stoves inside the shop, which creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere for the customer.

Whether you are looking for a modern high-efficiency fireplace, or a traditional decorative wood fireplace, Buck Energy can make it happen. For more information, call (909) 337-0256 or stop by the shop which is located at 26882 Hwy. 189 in Blue Jay. Hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
