 Our History
Thirty-five years ago, in the Spring of 1981, Kenneth and Sunne Davis opened Southern Fan & Energy Store on Jordan Lane, Huntsville, Alabama. Initially, wanting to provide high quality, well made, energy saving products for the local Huntsville market, they specialized in ceiling fans and wood stoves; but quickly expanded their product line to include gas logs which were becoming more efficient, more decorative, and more convenient to use.

Their business was an overnight success! A few years and several moves later, with a new name which better reflected their business, Southern Home and Hearth found it's present home on University Drive where they've remained for 31 years.

Now, people not only come from all over to shop for beautiful home and hearth products, but durable, well made outdoor gas and charcoal grills, and grill accessories...and to receive personalized care from a member of their well trained sales staff.

Many times, a customer will say, "That ceiling fan I bought from you thirty years ago is STILL working!" or "That wood stove I installed 12 years ago is the BEST investment I've EVER made!-It's saved me $1000's!"

Now, THAT'S a good history to have!
 Our Values
From the very beginning, we have made a strong, unwavering commitment to honesty & integrity in our business transactions. It doesn't matter if you drive up to our business in an expensive car or pedal up on a bicycle, you will be treated with the same genuine, careful attention to your needs. It is extremely important to us that all our customers be treated fairly receiving the best products for their dollars and the highest quality customer service in our area...all with a smile! Of course!

We believe that our Christian perspective provides the impetus to work a little harder to get the job done right and to show every customer that we value them and not just their business!

 Our Customer Friendly Policies
It has always been our goal to go the extra mile in regard to customer support after the sale! For example, if you buy a set of gas logs from one of the discount hardware stores and have a problem with their product, you will have to uninstall it, box it up, and take it back to them. If you paid to have it installed, you will also have to pay to have it uninstalled!

HOWEVER, when you BUY a set of gas logs FROM US, you will be able to call us for any problem. Many times, it is something simple; and we can tell you what can be done to correct it without the hassle of uninstalling it. When needed, we can come out, inspect, and service it in the home.

NOW is the time to buy a gas log set or a wood heater for the COLD winter days ahead! This is a photo of "Dalley" our store mascot showing off the top loading feature of the Vermont Castings ENCORE wood stove. It's more economical to heat with gas or wood!

We also hope that you will observe from our courteous service and friendly sales staff that we are a Christian business. We believe, that always working hard to do the best job we can for everyone who walks through our doors, gives glory and honor to our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ! And for the successes and opportunities with which He has blessed us, we truly are thankful!! It is our sincere goal to treat each and every customer with respect and to respond fairly and honestly with all who seek our products and services.

Owners Ken and Sunne Davis have lived in the Huntsville area for more than 36 years, and over that time, our customer's needs have changed along with the times and technology. Unlike the big box stores, we specialize in what we do and make it a point to keep up with all of the newest products and trends. We also know, however, that it is equally important to our customers that we always maintain the in house skills to service older products in our industry.

It is this commitment to what our customers already have in their homes combined with our vigilant pursuit of the most efficient and best made products in our industry that makes Southern Home & Hearth the best place to find everything you need for your fireplace or grill.
