Do you carry a wood burning stove that has a back outlet that can be vented into a existing fireplace and the fire place opening blocked off ? What model would that be, if you do carry them?
on November 9, 2012
Yes, we do have a wood stove that you can rear-vent into an existing fireplace. Please see this model:
You will want to make sure that the clearances listed in the owner's manual for that stove (which is downloadable on that item page linked above) can be adhered to in your application.
Also, assuming your existing unit is masonry, you can use 6" stainless steel DuraFlex liner and an all-fuel component kit such as this to vent your stove:
Please note the liner itself is not included in that kit. Here is one example of the liner:
Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

I’m looking for a vent-free fireplace that has a “modern” look. I see the Napoleon brand ones, and they look pretty cool. Ideally, the fireplace would be 50 – 60” wide total, including the frame.

Unfortunately, we do not offer a lot of vent free appliance quite that wide. Our largest has an overall width of 52". It is manufactured by Vantage Hearth:

What primer do I need to paint my wood stove mahogany brown?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 15, 2013
Answer:Per the manufacturer, as long as the surface of the stove has been cleaned, a primer is not necessary. Primer would only be needed with the 1,200 degree paint if a layer of corrosion or baked on dust is present that would not be easily removed.

I have a crack that is about 7-8 inches long but less than 1 or 2 mm wide in the top of my wood stove. What is the best cement to use to seal that crack?

Is there a product that we could use to burn in our wood burning stove that may be less bothersome for someone with allergies?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 24, 2013
Answer:Unfortunately, I am not aware of an additive that could help for your needs. The amount of dust that is drawn towards a wood stove can indeed cause issues with allergies and the only way to try and alleviate the problem is to make absolutely certain that the stove is as tight as possible. Check all gaskets and seals for air leakage and deterioration. This will help to ensure that air being drawn to the stove is at a minimum.

How can I identify my Heritage wood stove?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 25, 2013
Answer:Most stoves will have a build plate affixed to the rear of the unit, which should contain a model number and serial number for reference.

Looking at putting in a wood stove as supplemental heat source, thinking of putting in basement and possibly floor vents to help heat upstairs as well. Question is, which stove would be good for that and can it have a mantel/heat insert put around it?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 25, 2013
Answer:Free standing wood stoves can be placed into a noncombustible alcove, but it is best to leave them in an open space to allow best thermal efficiency. How much square footage would the unit ideally heat? Addition of a convection blower would help with heat distribution, but it is also important to size the stove correctly for best results.
