I am shopping for a fireplace insert, bay window style. I'm trying to find out how much your price range is for something that would fit a fireplace 40.5 inches wide, (30.5 on the inside). If you could price it with the overlay too, that would be helpful.
By Customer Service on October 17, 2011
Based on your dimensions, the FSD-OB02201 that you've selected would be your best choice. You may find the required accessories by clicking the "Accessories" button the insert's item page. I'd be glad to quote these for you but there are several different options available including size and finish. When selecting a Surround Trim Kit be sure that it is the same size as the Surround that you've selected (regular, medium, or large).

What do I need to do to be able to install one of your inserts into my 1700 square foot mobile home?
By eFireplaceStore on December 8, 2014
Wood burning inserts do indeed require either an existing masonry fireplace or a prefabricated fireplace with outside air provisions for installation. The wood burning inserts are not insulated well enough for installation into a framed opening. If you do not have either installed already, you may consider using a high efficiency closed combustion fireplace instead. An example is the Flame Monaco XTD EPA Zero Clearance Wood Burning Fireplace. This unit essentially works like a wood stove enclosed in a fireplace chassis and can be built into a framed opening without a problem.

I am looking for a very high efficiency, high BTU output, clean-burning wood-burning insert stove to fit a 22.5" deep, 28" wide back, 33" wide front, 24" high brick fireplace.
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 6, 2012
This Osburn 2200 insert meets those criteria and will fit inside your fireplace. Another option is the Osburn 2400 Woodburning Insert, which is our biggest model and will provide the most heat.
All of our wood-burning inserts require 6" stainless steel chimney liner to be connected to the insert and run up the length of your chimney. You can see suggested kits in the "Venting Components" tab on each insert's item page.
By Ron from GA on January 7, 2014
Can this be installed in an existing fireplace?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 7, 2014
Installation of this unit into an existing fireplace is actually its intended purpose. A stainless steel flexible liner will need to be run up the chimney in order to allow the unit to draft properly.
By Shari from Rolla, MO on February 7, 2015
We currently have a freestanding fireplace and are wanting to remodel and change it for a wood burning insert. Would we be able to vent it through our existing flue pipe? It would need to go up a garage wall, turn 90 degrees through the attic and straight out the roof. Also, would I have to use firebricks to put this in?
By eFireplaceStore on February 9, 2015
If your existing fireplace opening is in good condition, installation of an insert will not be an issue. The existing chimney flue must be lined with a 6 inch stainless steel liner of 304 grade or higher. The vent run must be entirely vertical, as 90 degree bends are not allowed by code for an insert.
By Georgia from Clarksville, TN on February 11, 2012
What are the other parts needed to install this item?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on February 13, 2012
In order to complete installation of this item, you must have a separately purchased door overlay kit, a faceplate shroud, and a shroud trim kit. A selection of these items and their prices are available on this item's accessory page. The only other thing needed would potentially be venting components.
By Bill on November 9, 2012
I am trying to determine how to measure for a fireplace insert. Currently my interior finish around the fireplace is brick and the fireplace opening is an arch. I am contemplating finding an insert and perhaps modernizing my fireplace but am unsure of the process. Can you help?
on November 9, 2012
Because most inserts are designed with a traditional fireplace in mind, the arch will make it difficult to size a unit to match properly. In the past, I have had several customer's either remove the bricks to create a more traditional sized opening or have a customer sized shroud fabricated locally to work with the insert.
Does the arch extend the entire depth of the firebox or is it just a decorative front?
By Peter on November 9, 2012
Are the trim and door included with the price?
on November 9, 2012
All of these items are not included in the price. In order to complete installation of this item, you must have a separately purchased door overlay kit, a faceplate shroud, and a shroud trim kit. These items can be found by clicking on the Accessories tab on the item page. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
By GENE FAUL from Sheffield, Ma 01257 on November 9, 2011
1. Can you tell me the fireplace dimensions that this item will fit into?
2. Does the system come with a liner?
3. We are in Berkshire County in Massachusetts. Who can install this item as we might want two?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 9, 2011
2. No, it does not. This insert requires a 6" stainless steel liner, which we offer. Depending on the height of your chimney, we have this liner in 15-, 20-, 25-, 30-, and 35-foot lengths. Here is an example of the 25-foot length:
3. We do not offer installation services, but you may want to contact a local contractor to assist you.

Can one of your insert units work in a zero-clearance Majestic Fireplace?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 11, 2013
Use of an insert will depend primarily on the model number of the Majestic fireplace. Some prefab fireplaces are insulated and designed to bear the weight of an insert, while others are not.
By Carl from WY on September 3, 2014
Can this insert be used safely during a power outage?
By eFireplaceStore on September 3, 2014
It can indeed. The blower is handy to circulate heated air further into the room, but it is not required for use of the insert.
By Kevin from Mt. Shasta, CA on February 8, 2015
Does this model have removable ash tray?
By eFireplaceStore on February 9, 2015
Unfortunately, no. As is the case with most inserts, this unit must be swept out through the door opening. The issue is with the vertical space requirements for an ash pan to be used. Most manufacturers keep their inserts as short as possible to accommodate more fireplaces, however this means an ash tray is usually not part of the design.
By Ben from GA on February 9, 2015
It does not have a removable ash tray, however it is easy to scoop out with an ash shovel. Always use a metal container for ash.
By John from Boston, MA on October 27, 2014
I purchased this unit and had it installed professionally. I cannot see in the manual how the blower works? Sometimes when it's on and the stove is hot, it will not shut off with the switch. Once it cools off, I can shut it off. What am I missing? So far it is a fantastic stove.
By eFireplaceStore on October 28, 2014
The blower for this stove is a two control model. There is a manual rheostat control and a thermal switch. The thermal switch will only heat up and close when the stove is warm enough, while the rheostat could be left on at all times at the desired speed. However, turning the rheostat completely off should override the thermal switch and shut the blower down. If the rheostat does not turn the blower off, there may be a defect in the control.
By Beth from Manchester, NH on November 7, 2012
I have a builders' grade gas fireplace (propane) with mantel and ceramic tile surround. It is vented externally, and the vent rises about 12" above my roof line.
Is there a product or a way that I can convert this useless fireplace box into one that can support a wood-burning insert like the one above (assuming the dimensions work)?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 7, 2012
This is not likely. Wood burning inserts require a fireplace with a high level of heat resistance. Normally, they are only approved for installation in a full brick and mortar fireplace. Unfortunately, your gas fireplace will simply not have the proper heat resistance to accept a wood burning insert.
Your alternative would be to remove it and its vent pipe and replace it with an efficient wood burning unit like this Stratford fireplace.

Can bio bricks or similar eco-friendly products be burned in the Osburn 2200?

What size would my rough opening on framing have to be? Also do dimensions allow for DURA rock or no such thing needed?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 5, 2013
This insert must be installed inside a brick or masonry fireplace. It cannot be framed into a wall or enclosure. For installation inside an existing brick/masonry fireplace, you must have the following minimum dimensions:
Opening Height: 21.75"
Opening Width: 28"
Opening Depth: 17.8"
By Eric from Ohio on December 14, 2013
I have a wood burning fireplace that I am having completely rebuilt. It puts out decent heat and my only complaint is that I have to load and stoke it every hour to hour and a half. I have never used an insert before. Does an insert burn longer? I also have a 2000 sq ft home with an open floor plan. Will the blower on the unit put out enough heat to cover other areas of the house or just the room the fireplace is in?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 16, 2013
Wood burning inserts do indeed make better use of their fuel and allow for longer burn times. This is achieved by controlling the amount of combustion air that feeds the fire. This will allow for a slower burn, while the small insulated firebox creates an intense fire. Average burn time for this model is approximately 6 hours. The circulating blower is designed to help create convection in the space the insert is located in. In my experience, using the circulating blower from the central heating system will help to distribute the heated air to other parts of the house more effectively.
By Melody from Chicago on October 19, 2011
Are the measurements for this fireplace depth from the back to the wall or from the back to the front that sticks out beyond the wall? I need to know if my existing fireplace is deep enough for this insert.
By Kevin E. on October 19, 2011
The Osburn 2200 insert actually measures a total of 28 3/8" from the back edge to the front grill. I hope this information is helpful.
By Mark from Russell Springs, KY on October 29, 2014
I have used an Ashley wood burning insert for 20 years and it finally gave up the ghost. I can't even replace the blower motors.
I've read a lot of your answers and one that concerns me is the fresh air requirements. Our old Ashley just sat back in the fireplace and we manufactured a rectangle cap that attached to the opening then transitioned it into a 6 inch round to attach the triple walled S/S pipe that ran up the chimney approximately 20 feet.
Is this all that is needed for any of these inserts? I read one answer where you stated that I may have to cut into the masonry and I do not want to do that. What would you suggest I do?
By eFireplaceStore on October 30, 2014
The wood burning inserts that we carry are designed to be able to operate from the room combustion air, although some do have the option to use outside combustion air. This is likely what was being referred to about cutting the masonry, as installation of an outside air kit would require this.
In your case, it sounds like you could install one of our inserts using room air for combustion. You may need a short piece of flex venting to make the junction between the appliance and the existing 6 inch piping.
By Carolyn from IA on September 16, 2014
How difficult is it to install this insert?
By eFireplaceStore on September 16, 2014
A wood burning insert is relatively easy to install for a handy individual. Most often, the biggest challenge is lifting the insert into the fireplace opening. Once this is done and the insert is level, running a liner down the chimney and tying it to the insert can be completed in a relatively short amount of time.
By Tim from Pleasantville, NY on November 23, 2012
The depth of this model is 27". How far outside my fireplace opening will it extend? How far outside the fireplace and protruding toward the living room will it go? Also, will the glass always remain clear or will it become less clear over time?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 26, 2012
The total projection of this unit into your living room, including the thickness of the decorative flashing/surround, will be 11 inches. This unit does feature an air wash system that is designed to keep the glass relatively clear during normal operation and when installed properly. However, it will be necessary to clean the glass from time to time to remove the thin film of ash that will build up.
By Alan from Allentown, PA on December 10, 2014
I have an external air intake in my masonry fireplace that is placed in the floor of the firebox near the front (just inside of the glass doors) Will this work for external combustion air for this unit?
By eFireplaceStore on December 10, 2014
The air intake port for this unit is located behind the bottom louvers, in the bay of the unit, just in front of the door opening. Negative pressure caused by the unit operation should allow the firebox to draw air from the combustion air opening you mention, but I recommend elevating the unit slightly on scraps of 1/2 inch cement board. This will prevent the flat bottom of the unit from sealing the opening and limiting combustion air access.
By Alice from Moss Point, MS on June 12, 2014
How do I measure my existing fireplace for this insert to fit properly?
By Chris C. on June 13, 2014
It is most effective to measure the opening height, opening width, and the opening depth. Additionally, the Installation Manual is an excellent resource to double check the dimensions of the unit versus the opening size of your fireplace. The specific dimensions of the insert can be seen on page 3.
By Sam Hammons from North Texas on October 27, 2011
I don't see the fresh air system in the accessories, is this a combustion air kit? Installing the insert in a masonry fireplace, where can I pipe the fresh air kit to draw from?
By Kevin E. on October 28, 2011
You'll need two items. An adaptor and a vent pipe. Please follow the below links to view them.
Generally, you'd pipe the fresh air vent to the outside. In your case, you may have to cut through some masonry to do so.
By Tom from Stoning on January 12, 2014
Where should I place a thermometer on the unit, and what type should I use?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 14, 2014
Per the manufacturer, there is not an ideal location for using a thermometer on either the 1800 or 2200 bay window inserts. The thermometer could be attached to the upper louvers to give an estimate of temperature, but the reading would likely be off by 75 degrees or so, as the thermometer would not have immediate contact with the body of the stove.

In the short time I have owned this insert I am pleased with the ease of operation and its efficiency. I am confident that next winter I will be able to use my Osburn insert as the sole source of heat for my 2000 square foot home.

This is my fourth year with this stove, and it has worked perfectly for me so far. It heats the entire first level and much of the second level of my 2000 sq. ft. house. I do have some tips to get the most of this stove that I would like to share. First of all, the blower is a must buy if you have the insert model. Before inserting the logs, make sure the intake is fully open. I recommend placing the logs in facing front to back, and make sure to use ample amounts of kindling. Once you have the logs lit, leave the door open a crack (about one inch) until the the fire has a good start and then close it. I suggest waiting to latch the door shut until your thermometer (must be purchased seperately) indicates a temperature of 250 degrees, or the blower has started automatically. While you may find success getting an extended burn if you try partially closing the air intake, I would caution against closing the vent too much, as doing so will cause charcoal to form and make your heater difficult to clean. I can typically go three burnings before cleaning my stove, but be careful with this, as allowing too much ash to accumulate will inhibit your fire from burning properly. If you don't have time to clean, you can push the ashes to the back of the stove to give yourself a little more time. Good luck, and happy home heating!

When I think back to how much money we used to spend to heat the house while never really getting warm. . . . When I think how we used to sit around wearing sweaters and long underwear, covered up with blankets while we watched TV. . . . I wonder why in the world we waited so long to install this great, high-efficiency stove! Highly recommended—looks great, saves us tons of money. We’re planning to add on to our home and will probably get a second one of these. Can you tell I’m happy!?

My home is between 1600 and 1700 square feet, and in the past we heated it with our gas furnace. We heat it now just with this stove, and it keeps us nice and warm—even when temps have dropped into the teens. My only small complaint is that the limit switch tends to turn the fan off too early. I bypassed it, and now it’s not a problem. Good stove!
