The blower housing is located in the bottom front of the unit and forces air between the narrow channel of the firebox and the surrounding heat shields. Air exits just above the door opening. This creates a slow effect of circulation within the room, with cool air being forced down towards the floor.

Does the fan turn on when the stove heats up? Or does it need to be manually turned on and off?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 1, 2013
While the blower does have variable speed capability, it is not thermostatically controlled. The blower must be activated by turning the rheostat knob.

Can this insert be placed in a pre-fab zero clearance fireplace? What are the minimum dimensions that this stove will fit in?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 18, 2013
This unit can indeed be used in a pre-fab fireplace, as long as the fireplace is listed for use with a fireplace insert.
The insert requires 20 inches of depth, 26 1/2 inches of width, front and back, and 21 1/2 inches of height to fit properly.

Does this unit have a removable ash tray?
By eFireplaceStore on June 26, 2014
Unfortunately, no. The inserts that we carry have a fire brick lined floor and do not have the space for an ash drawer or tray. As such, ash must be swept through the opening. The units do have an ash lip to facilitate the process and keep spills to a minimum.

Is this something that I can install myself? If not, how much would this cost to have installed by a professional?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on September 17, 2013
Installing a fireplace insert is doable for a handyman. However, we do recommend having it professionally installed for safety and optimum performance. While installation costs vary widely across the country, we recommend calling around and having a woodburning fireplace insert installation job quoted by several local outlets to get the best price.

Will this product fit into an existing zero-clearance fireplace? If not what do you have that will, with a small opening?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 28, 2014
This product can indeed be used in an existing prefabricated fireplace, as long as the size allows. We have other inserts that can work in this fashion as well.
