I have a Heatilator EC36 Z/C fireplace. Heatilator says that wood inserts can be installed into this EC36 fireplace, but they would not say which brands. Do you have anything that will work?

Our Answer:

Unfortunately, there is a grey area between manufacturers of fireplaces and wood burning inserts. Both parties state that their products can only be used with a corresponding item that is specifically tested and listed for the fireplace/insert. In practice, manufacturers do not employ this procedure. As such, it is generally accepted that if a manufacturer states that an insert can be used in their firebox, any insert that states it can be used in a manufactured fireplace can be installed. The primary issue with the EC36 is the opening height. Per manufacturer specs, it is only 21 inches in height at the opening, which is too small to fit any insert that we carry. As such, another manufacturer would need to be used. I apologize that we do not carry an insert for your needs.
