About Friends of the Sun

What you should know about us.

For starters, we’ve been doing this awhile.  Established in 1976, and still going strong!

At Friends of the Sun, we believe in selling only quality products that have a high and enduring value. The products we offer are energy efficient, beautifully designed and crafted, and will last far longer than lower cost alternatives.

We also believe it’s important for us to help you be educated and completely up-to-date on the latest in heating and cooling products, so that we can provide the kind of advice and guidance you need. Only by listening first, asking the right questions, and clearly understanding your needs will we be able to connect you to the right product and service.

But that’s only the beginning of what we hope will be a long-lasting relationship. We install and service what we sell and we believe that our years of experience can result in solutions that add comfort and value to your home. Our thorough, detail-oriented and patient approach to installation and service reflect our respect for your home. And we care as much about the aesthetics of our work as you do.

Different? We’d like to think so.

First, we sell, install, and service all of our products. You see, selling wood, pellet, or gas stoves aren’t sidelines for us. Neither are window treatments, awnings, or outdoor furnishings. They are what we do. We’re knowledgeable about the latest technology in heating and cooling and we display only those products in our showroom. Once we understand your needs, chances are good we can show you the right product.

We go to extraordinary lengths to understand what you really need. What’s right for your space? How will it complement your décor? How might that décor or the room itself change over time? Can we introduce you to another product you may not be considering that could work even better?

This conversation starts in our store and usually continues with a home visit just to ensure you’re getting the right product and that we understand your needs.

If you’re building a new home, or renovating an older home, we’ll take those plans into consideration and will work closely with your architect or builder so that your vision is fully realized.

Our expert installers are trained to follow local codes and manufacturers specifications. None of us like surprises.

And we’re always available for follow-up service. Our team of experts has years of experience and can trouble-shoot issues before they become major headaches.


We’d love to talk. Call, email us, or better yet, stop by our showroom at 532 Putney Road in Brattleboro, VT. It’s a pretty cozy place and you might be surprised by what you see. Come visit.
