Who We Are

Holy Smoke Inc is a full service chimney company. In 1979 Tony Reitz took a course in chimney cleaning from an experienced chimney sweep named Jonathan Lucky and then started sweeeping chimneys on his own. After sweeping for a few years he broadened his knowledge and became a California licensed contractor authorized to install wood, gas and pellet stoves and fireplaces. During the early years two of the most frequent customer questions were "Which stove or fireplace insert is best? Which do you recommend?" After observing many brands in the course of his chimney work, Tony settled on the LOPI brand stoves and inserts made by Travis Industries as consistently good performers under a variety of situations. Another plus for LOPI was that they were (and are) made in a factory near Seattle, WA. Tony became a LOPI dealer and over the years has added the other Travis Industries stove lines - Fireplace Xtrordinair and Avalon. Four additional stove lines, Morso, Hearthstone, Kuma and Zephyr were carefully selected to bring their unique beauty combined with modern technology.  A showroom was opened five years ago giving customers an opportunity to see the different stoves and have their questions answered by knowledgeable staff.  Often this initial visit to the showroom is followed by an appointment with Tony at the customers' home.  There they can discuss the customers' ideas and needs and Tony can present the options that are available so that the customer can make an informed decision.  If Holy Smoke Inc is doing a stove or fireplace installation Tony will take measurements and create a proposal for the customers which includes all aspects of the installation (or as little or as much as the customer requires).  Holy Smoke now offers a consultation service which includes a home visit, discussion of unit and placement options. taking measurements and finally creating a detailed list of what the customer would need to do the work himself.  If during the installation the customer has difficulties or questions Holy Smoke is available for answers or advice.
