A Beautiful Outdoor Fireplace Makes Patio Season Last All Year!

Campeau Heating explores the benefits of having an outdoor fireplace in Sudbury, Ontario.

A Beautiful Outdoor Fireplace Makes Patio Season Last All Year!

Ontario summers are short and sweet. Sadly, we only get to experience this long-awaited season for about three months of the year - June 21st to September 23rd. So we cram in BBQs, bonfires, campouts and parties every weekend possible just to make the most of it. 

But with an outdoor fireplace, your outdoor patio season doesn’t have to start in June and end in September. It can last as long as you’d like!

You can enjoy the warm blaze of your outdoor fireplace no matter the season. Whether that be a peaceful spring morning, a lively summer night or a crisp autumn evening. 

Choose from our selection of modern, traditional, rustic or eclectic fireplaces to create the perfect all-season backyard ambience! We even offer a choice between wood-burning and gas fireplaces, so you can choose the most practical fuel choice for your home.
