NASELLE - August might not seem like a good time to shop for a new heat source for your home when the temperature continues to drive one to look for means of cooling down rather than heating up. However, with fall and winter just around the corner, now is the time to get that new heater installed before the temperature drops.
L.A. Small Engine & Saw Repair Shop, located at 44 Salmon Creek-Naselle Cutoff Road in the Salmon Creek area of Naselle, is going to be providing a demonstration of the Monitor Heating Products at the Wahkiakum County Fair in Skamokawa next Thursday, Aug. 21, through Saturday, Aug. 23.
Larry and Marilyn Sherk have been dealers for the Monitor Heaters for about eight years at their L.A. Small Engines shop. Next week's fair appearance will be the first time that they have "gone on the road" to demonstrate the Monitor Heaters.
The Monitor Products Corporation will provide the Sherks with an air conditioned demonstration trailer that will have the various models of heaters working so that one can observe them in a working mode while receiving answers to questions about the heaters.
The Sherks will provide fairgoers with written material, answers to questions, and demonstrate the stove's ease of operation. Any stove sold during the duration of the fair will be sold at a special discounted price.
L.A. Small Engines provides complete installation services for the Monitor Heater, if desired, as well as maintenance support during and after the warranty period.
"In all of the years that we have sold the Monitor, I haven't had one person complain to me about the way that they work or the cost of operating one in comparison to other costs for heat," said Larry Sherk. "We had a new double wide manufactured home put in for us and after less than one winter of paying high electric bills, we put in a Monitor. It has made a tremendous difference on our heating bill. Everyone else who we have installed them for tells us the same thing."
If you can't make it to the fair, stop in at the L. A. Small Engines shop, a short trip up the Salmon Creek Valley, where the stoves are displayed. While there, one can also see the wide variety of other products that the L.A. Small Engine shop sells and services, including Snapper mowers, Shindaiwa products, and Jonsered saws, as well as a full assortment of accessories.
