I have a large woodburning fireplace. Do you have an insert that can be used in this type of fireplace so that we could get more of the heat coming into the house instead of all of it up the chimney? Would your "Stoll 22 inch Wide x 20 inch Deep Grate Heater for Woodburning Applications" work for this? There are no doors on my fireplace. Would I have to put doors on it for this device to work?

Answer:The Stoll grate heaters are indeed the best product to use for increasing circulation into the room. Because open faced wood burning fireplaces pull a good deal of dilution air up the chimney, it would be an excellent idea to use the heater in conjunction with doors. This will ensure that only a very limited amount of the heater air expelled from the heater will be pulled up the chimney again.

Is the view in the picture the same as the orientation of the unit when installed (the motor toward the doors)? Where does the hot air come out?

Answer:This picture is true to the actual product. After being pulled in by the blower assembly on the left, heated air is forced out through the slats on the right front. bottom of the grate.

How is the blower changed to the right side? Is the item as pictured with the cradle at the front as well as the back to hold wood?

Answer:The blower can be assembled to the left or right side, using the provided hardware. Provisions are made for the air tube to attach to either side and assembly is covered in detail in the manual. The grate will indeed include a cradle at the front and back as pictured.
