Peter and Michelle


Peter and Michelle (Shelly) Schauermann can seem as large as life itself (they're both very tall) and to be fair they have the physical evidence to prove it! With their small "tribe" of 11 kids between the two of them, it's fair to say "family" is more than just a buzzword for them. Both are Clatsop County locals and love the families and sense of community found in our corner of heaven.

Peter has been installing and servicing every kind of heating and cooling unit you can imagine. In 2002 he decided to strike out and try his hand at running his own shop, and has been doing it even since.

Shelly juggles her time between her abundant family life and the bookkeeping for the business. She makes sure everyone is taken care of, inside and outside the walls Columbia Housewarmers.

Pete and Shelly warm their house with a hybrid heating system that matches radiant heated floors, a Jotul wood stove, a Whitfield pellet stove, and an oil furnace to create a warm house, and yes, they are very warm.

Steve - Technician

With over 20 years of install and service experience, it's hard to have a heating problem Steve can't figure out. His WARMTH PRO expertise is on oil heaters and pellet stoves, and while that might lend you to believe he's not so good on other stoves, or heaters don't think for a second Steve doesn't know what he is talking about.

Straight forward thinking and talking, Steve is a HUGE asset to our team and our mission of keeping folks warm.

Steve warms his house with a natural gas furnace and a Valor fireplace.
