We have a "metal box" fireplace in our 10-year old house. Is there a wood burning insert you could recommend? I was told two different things by two retailers.

Our Answer:

The use of a wood burning insert within a manufactured fireplace can indeed be a fuzzy subject. In order to be able to use the insert, both the manufacturer of the insert and the manufactured fireplace must specifically state that they can be used in the corresponding type of unit. Do you know the manufacturer name and model number of your existing fireplace? There is usually a build plate that is affixed to the unit, either in the bottom compartment beneath the floor or on either wall, just inside the opening near the top.
