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:

How can I identify my Heritage wood stove?

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.
