Can any electric insert be added to this mantel?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 18, 2012
Answer:While this mantel is meant to house select Vantage Hearth vent-free fireplaces, there should be no problem installing an electric insert inside it. Be sure to check the exact dimensions of the electric insert you are interested in, as well as the appropriate clearances to combustibles for the model.
