I have a pellet stove in a prefab chimney, which I hate. My condo is 1800 square feet and I am looking for a wood burning insert that will work with it. The dimensions I have are 15" depth, 30" width, and 25" height. Can you offer any advice?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 3, 2013

Answer:
For your installation, the Napoleon EPA Wood Burning Fireplace Insert - EPI-1402 would be an excellent choice. It requires very little depth to fit and would do well to heat your 1,800 square foot area. However, approximately 10 inches of the appliance must project on to your hearth. Does your prefab unit have a hearth that would support the front of the unit? Please advise at your convenience.

Answer:
Venting components for this unit are priced separately. The appropriate liner kits for this model can be seen in the venting components tab on the item page. The correct length of liner should be used to match the height of your chimney system. Any extra footage can be cut at the time of installation.

Will this insert work in a Marco 792778D fireplace? This is in a manufactured home.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 20, 2014

Answer:
This unit is rated for use in a manufactured fireplace and has provisions for outside combustion air, which are both necessary requisites to installation in a prefab unit in a manufactured home. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any information on your model of Marco fireplace to see if it is rated for an insert and is large enough to hold one. Marco was absorbed into Lennox Hearth Products, who we are not a dealer for. I recommend contacting Lennox to see if they may have additional information about ratings for your Marco fireplace. I apologize that I do not have access to this information.

By Gregg from CO on June 19, 2013
What kind of construction is required to create a new fireplace for a wood insert? Can the area be lined with concrete backer board, like what you use under tiles, or do I need to build a brick fireplace? Do I need to get a steel pre-fab fireplaces? If I do build it in, and use cultured stone for the front, can I take that right up to the edge of the insert, or do I still need the face plate?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 20, 2013

Answer:
The minimum requirement for a wood burning insert to be installed is to have a masonry enclosure constructed that would completely surround the insert. A factory built class A chimney could then be attached to the top of the enclosure, venting the appliance to the termination.

Installing the insert into a pre-fab fireplace is certainly an option as well, but this often proves to be a more difficult route to pursue. In most cases, the flue collar of the insert does not line up with the collar of the pre-fab box. There is also not a UL listing for this type of installation, so many building inspectors will not pass it.

It is possible to build the masonry enclosure and use the cultured stone you mention to completely enclose the unit, however you will still want to leave some access around the insert for removal and service. It is possible to have the surround cut down by a metal shop so that it does not appear so large.

You may consider an option such as the Flame Monaco XTD EPA Zero Clearance Wood Burning Fireplace, as this unit features greater heating capacity and efficiency than most inserts and can also be built into a combustible enclosure. Class A chimney pipe can then be used to vent the unit.

By Cherry on October 17, 2011
Would this unit be safe for a manufactured home, or would you have a unit for a manufactured home?
By Customer Service on October 17, 2011

Answer:
This insert you inquired about, as with all fireplace inserts, are made to slide into existing masonry fireplaces/chimneys. We did also receive your other email asking about inserts in general, and this is the case for all fireplace inserts. For any manufactured application, you would need to buy a fireplace or firebox. You can see our selection of wood-burning fireplaces and fireboxes at the following link:

Do you have something that will work with these measurements?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 2, 2012

Unfortunately, none of our wood-burning inserts will work with these dimensions, as our smallest models require just over 20" of opening height. We apologize for this inconvenience.

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 16, 2012

Drolet Fresh Air Kit -5" Diameter

Drolet Insulated Fresh Air Intake Pipe (4' Length / 5'' Diameter)


By Dennis from Piedmont, Missouri on January 21, 2014
Where does the Drolet bit get it's fresh air from,inside and outside? What I mean is most stoves get their air in front by the door, and I don't see an entrance for it.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 21, 2014

Answer:
This model of insert is able to use inside or outside air for combustion. When set up for indoor air, there is a damper control handle that opens a sliding flap on the underside of the firebox, which allows air to enter the firebox through a small opening in the interior. When set up for outside air, there is a knockout on the side of the firebox that allows the attachment of an adapter and flex hose. The slider will still control air flow.

By Dennis from Piedmont, Missouri on January 21, 2014
How do you maintain your fire? I don't have much of a place for a bed of coals. Do you continue to take out your fire bed so it won't come out the door when you open it? It seems like it should be deeper. I just bought it used and I am wondering about that. It took a long time to get going. Also there is no positive draft under the wood. I have a brand new 6" pipe from stove to the top of the old fireplace sealed with a cap. Can you help me troubleshoot this?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 21, 2014

Answer:
EPA stoves and inserts do indeed have a smaller firebox than older models. After the initial lighting of the kindling fire and addition of the main fuel load, there is no other maintenance of the fire necessary. These stoves produce a great amount of heat by utilizing all the fuel that they are supplied with, leaving very little ash behind. While they do have a primary air supply, the stoves function mostly by the secondary combustion air that is fed from the tubes in the top of the firebox. Typically, a 6 inch liner or Class A chimney pipe is used to vent the unit through an existing larger chimney.

By William from Indiana on December 13, 2011
Is this fire insert rated for zero clearance fireplaces?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 13, 2011

Answer:
This model of insert can be utilized in an existing manufactured fireplace. However, the maker of the fireplace must clearly state that the unit is able to accept a wood burning insert. If the manufactured unit is not listed to accept an insert, clearances to combustible framing may become inadequate and a fire can result.

Please consult the owner's manual of the firebox to be certain.

By Robert from Atlanta, GA on December 4, 2013
What is the height, width, and depth of the unit?

Answer:
A small insert, such as the Osburn 1100 High Efficiency EPA Woodburning Insert with Blower could likely work for your installation. This model requires 13 inches of depth and only needs 26 inches of width to fit properly. I do recommend measuring your fireplace to ensure that there is 26 inches of width at that 13 inch depth point.
