We all know what November brings in this part of the country - cold nights in anticipation of many more cold nights ahead. With the bounty of timber available, many in North Idaho continue to rely on wood burning stoves and fireplaces to heat their homes. And if you can’t remember the last time you had your chimney swept or inspected, it’s time for a call to Jakes Chimney Sweep and Mountain Stove to make sure you’re ready for the long cold nights ahead.
Cliff and Dana McDermeit own and operate Jakes Chimney Sweep and Mountain Stove as a family operation. Having purchased Jakes Chimney Sweep in 2006, the McDermeits saw another business opportunity in 2015 when they acquired inventory from Jim and Betsy Fulling, owners of Mountain Stove and Spa, and moved into their storefront at 1225 Michigan Street combining the two businesses.
In the showroom you will find a great selection of wood, gas and pellet burning stoves from the top brands in the industry. Working as a husband and wife team, Cliff and Dana lead a team of five guys and are up to date on the latest technology in heating. They listen to their customers’ needs and budget and match them with the right model of stove that’s best for them.
If your house has a wood burning stove and functioning chimney, it’s vital to have the chimney properly swept and inspected regularly. Over time, creosote builds up inside of chimneys and, if not properly removed, can catch fire to not just the chimney but also your entire home. Jakes Chimney Sweep and Mountain Stove employs a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep who does the job right and can help locate potential problems and issues before they become catastrophic.
If your chimney is in disrepair or needs to be scrapped and rebuilt, the staff at Jakes Chimney Sweep can install a new one for you. If you’re looking to replace your wood burning stove with a gas or pellet system, they carry a wide range of options and help with installation of both wood burning and pellet stoves. As the business continues to grow, Cliff and Dana continue to stand by the founding principles of the company.
“We believe that we have been successful in business because we work hard to honor people the way we want to be honored,” said Cliff. “We value quality, hard work, honesty and we want our customers to have an excellent experience. We believe that God has blessed us.”
Jakes Chimney Sweep and Mountain Stove also sells spas! What’s better than a nice warm soak after a day on the slopes, shoveling snow, or just to relax at the end of a long week? Cliff and Dana are authorized dealers for Marquis Spas, some of the top rated hot tubs in the country. Spas can be customized with different accents or you can go with a swim spa that allows you to swim laps in your backyard and afterwards calm the water and relax. They also sell the spa chemicals and filters necessary to service your spa.
With five children of their own, the McDermeits enjoy working with kids and are very involved in their church and especially enjoy helping in the nursery. They are happy to call North Idaho home.
Whether it’s maintaining your current stove or seeking advice on a new model, Jakes Chimney Sweep and Mountain Stove has everything you need to keep your home warm for the coming winter and beyond. Stop by and see what’s new, and after seeing the beautiful Marquis Spas maybe you’ll stop waffling on that decision to get a hot tub as well!
