Prefabricated wood burning fireplaces combine the timeless appeal of a wood fire with modular simplicity for a smooth installation.

    Zero clearance wood burning fireplaces encompass a broad spectrum of appliances. Open faced wood burning appliances are perfect for setting the mood and do not supply excessive heat to the room, allowing them to be enjoyed for the majority of the year if desired. There are also many different styles, ranging from compact and traditional, to cavernous and modern.

    For those looking for a legitimate source of heat, closed combustion fireplaces offer the ability to supplement traditional HVAC systems, with some models being large enough to heat thousands of square feet. A long time bestseller in this category is the Flame Monaco. Closed combustion models such as the Monaco combine fire viewing with efficient heating and the option for ducting of heat to adjacent rooms and spaces. This added versatility makes closed combustion appliances the pinnacle in modern wood heating.

    Wood Burning Fireplace Definition

    Offered in both traditional open faced and high efficiency controlled combustion versions, a wood burning fireplace is designed to burn cut wood for both fire viewing pleasure and heating requirements. Open models are perfect for ambiance, while sealed combustion models function like a wood stove, heating large areas of space effectively.

    How do you change blowers on Magestic fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Specific procedure can vary from one unit to another (even among the Majestic line). But, generally, blowers are replaced through the bottom front louver.

    I am trying to replace a fireplace and my framing opening is 47 wide x 29 high what do you have that would fit builder grade?
    1 Answer
    If the framing headed cannot be raised, you will not have any success locating a wood burning fireplace with only 29" as the framing height. If you are trying to avoid removal of tile or stone facing materials that may already be in place, which is recommended when replacing a wood burning fireplace with another wood burning fireplace, one other potential option is removal and replacement of the existing fireplace through an exterior wall.

    January 3, 2018
    The vent for my fireplace has a closing lid that has to be all the way open or closed. therefore when I use the fireplace with it open the majority of the heat goes up the chimney. Is there anything I can do to get the latch to be partly closed so I can have some heat flow back into the house?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, no. With wood burning fireplaces, most of the heat will simply be lost up the chimney and the only way to capture some of this heat is with a circulating blower, but this would have had to have been installed during the initial installation of the fireplace.

    How do the measurements work? How do I measure the insert for replacement?
    1 Answer
    Any measurements of the fireplace taken prior to removal would be of little use, however, locating the manufacturer and model number from the metal tag located inside of the fireplace opening would allow us to locate the existing framed cavity measurements and, subsequently, a suitable replacement. Please note that replacement of an existing zero clearance fireplace involves removal of any finishing tile or stone currently in place, in addition to partial removal of a wall in order to reveal the stud framing, which may be altered somewhat to accommodate a fireplace with differing dimensions and framing requirements.

    I'm trying to buy a house that is screaming for a fireplace. The room I'd put it in has two exterior doors and I would like to place the fireplace where one door is now. What do you have to do to the backside of the fireplace if it is exposed to the elements?
    1 Answer
    You would enclose the back, so that it is no longer exposed to the outside. They call it building a kick out.

    I am looking for fuel that goes into a container that you put under the logs, ignite the fuel, and remove container when logs start to burn.
    1 Answer
    While we do not have the fuel to sell, most log starters will recommend the use of kerosene for this purpose. This is commonly sold at gas stations or in small bottled quantities at home improvement or hardware stores.

    What is the difference between the circulating and the clear face fireplace? Does the clear face circulate the heat?
    1 Answer
    Circulating models allow for a heat circulating blower to be installed within the fireplace chassis to aid in pushing heated air out into the living space. Radiant or clean face models do not have provisions to accept a heat circulating blower, as such, they allow for a cleaner installation, but provide strictly radiant heat to the living space during operation.

    Can Hackberry wood be burned in a wood burning stove?
    1 Answer
    When properly seasoned, hackberry wood is almost identical to elm and you should expect a similar qualities and heating value. It is considered a good wood to burn overall, but can be prone to rotting. I would not suggest burning this wood as it nears two years of seasoning as this will create creosote and excessive smoke, leaving a dirty stove and creosote-filled chimney. As is the case with all wood for burning, please stack the wood off the ground and cover the top two thirds with a tarp and let this wood sit for at least 6 months prior to burning. I would suggest purchasing a Moisture Meter to ensure that the wood you intend to burn has between 15% and 20% moisture content.

    What is the difference between circulating and an all in one circulating fireplace?
    1 Answer
    A circulating unit will have louvers on the face to increase convection. A fan can also be added to increase circulation. The louvers cannot be covered however. The all in one model uses the same louvers, but they can be covered if they are not used. A circulating unit would be good for a room that is larger than approximately 12 by 12, as it will push the heat further into the room.

    What's the best type of wood to use?
    1 Answer
    It is always best to burn a well seasoned hardwood, as they have higher density and thus provide a higher BTU output. Common species that are good performers are Red Oak, White Oak, Apple, Pear, Locust, Hickory, Beech, and Alder. These species burn slowly and evenly. As a rule, you should avoid softwoods such as Pine, Spruce, and Sycamore. Most species of conifers do not make good firewood. These types actually burn very hot, but the fuel supply burns quickly and releases a good deal of pitch during combustion, requiring more frequent cleaning of the chimney.

    Are your wood burning fireplaces CSA (Canadian Standards Approved) approved?
    1 Answer
    CSA typically only tests and labels gas fired appliances. As such, our wood burning products have not been tested or listed by them. Most of our wood burning products are tested and listed by UL, OMNI, or PFS. Most units also carry an ICC number, which is often required to be accepted by local code enforcement in both Canada and the U.S.

    1 Answer
    In regards to wood burning units, any unit purchased can be returned within 30 days of purchase. If the unit must be repacked or reconditioned, a 15% restocking fee will be levied. The original outbound freight will be deducted from your credit. We can help arrange freight return of the unit as well. Return freight cost would be deducted from your credit in that case.

    Do all fireplace inserts require a grate?
    1 Answer
    The use of a grate is completely up to you. Grates do aide in air circulation which can lend to easier starting fires. However, traditional inserts, those full-bodied appliances that are installed into masonry fireplaces, do not normally accept grates.
