We have a fireplace that was originally wood, but was converted to gas. How can we find out if we can install a wood-burning insert now to help with heating our house? What needs to happen with the chimney for venting of a wood-burning insert?

Our Answer:

You will need to be sure of two things when considering a wood-burning insert for your fireplace. First, the manufacturer and model number of the wood-burning fireplace itself; second, the manufacturer of the wood-burning insert and whether it has been tested and listed for use within your exact model of fireplace. All of the wood-burning inserts we sell require a 6" stainless steel liner attached to the top of the unit and run the entire length of the chimney; this would need to be installed within your (presumably) manufactured chimney pipe.
