    Do I need a grate for my wood-burning fireplace insert?
    1 Answer
    Most inserts do not require a grate as it is recommended not to elevate the fire. However, you will want to locate your manual and confirm.

    How much room do I need to get my hands in the opening above a wood burning insert to attach the vent pipe?
    1 Answer
    The key for sizing will be making sure there is sufficient room from the flue collar location to the damper shelf area to make sure the stainless steel liner has enough room. For installation, you can drop the liner down the flue and connect it to the insert before it is placed inside the firebox itself.

    Should a gas fireplace insert fit snugly? I can push on the front of the unit and it moves a good 1/2, which seems dangerous to me. Am I wrong to be concerned?
    1 Answer
    It should no be movable easily, but it is not usually fastened into the fireplace. It should be able to be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance. Since movement and it's "mobility" is a relative term I would recommend either having a professional look at the installation or have your chimney sweep or annual service person look at the unit for you.
