Fireplace Inserts can be directly installed into the fireplace mantel cabinet to give you the look and feel of an authentic fireplace. These electric powered inserts have the same beauty and aesthetic value of real wood fireplaces without the hassle and mess of cutting and hauling wood or inconvenience and expense of purchasing wood. Electric fires burn clean and without any odors, and the realistic resin logs and warm and colorful flame will make it a cozy place to gather.

I'm looking for a fireplace to install in the wall above a bathtub recessed into the wall. Would you recommend this one? I'm in construction phase so electric or gas will work however the depth is a concern. The smaller the better and it seems the electrics are thinner. The wall is a 6 inches.

The electric fireplaces will indeed be the best option in regards to depth, as even the shallowest gas units cannot meet the 7 3/4 inch depth that this appliance has. This is a popular model that is designed exactly for a built in application as you require. This should be an excellent match, as long as the extra depth can be accommodated in some way.

I'm planning on constructing a marble fireplace on an existing wall in my living room. I have a marble mantel and the other marble pieces that were deconstructed from another home. The opening for the fireplace will be 36" wide by 30" high. I am looking for a ventless electric fireplace insert. Can you tell me which of your units will fit this type of installation?

While your dimensions are just a tad short on the height to fit some of our 32" electric ventless models, we do have some smaller units that will fit. Please see them below:

If the firebox on our fireplace is 33" wide, do we need to purchase an electric insert the same width? Or, does someone need to frame the opening in order to use a smaller insert?

Generally, an insert that is as close to the width of your fireplace as possible is the most desirable item to use, as the size of the shroud to cover up the additional space could be kept to a minimum. A smaller insert can be used, as long as a shroud is available that is large enough to cover the additional space.
