Our Answer:

You may indeed install a wood burning insert into a zero clearance box as long as it has the required dimensions and is rated to accept an insert. The webpage for this item has both the installation manual and manufacturer's brochure for this Napoleon insert. These documents will provide you with any information you need to know. All of Osburn's inserts have an efficiency rating between 75% and 80%

I am building a new house and am planning for a fireplace with an efficient woodburning insert. Is it fine to go with the $250 "builders box ZC fireplace insert and then put one of the Napoleon or Osborne inserts in it ? Is there anything I need to specify with builders to obtain maximum safety and efficiency with my installation ? Also I am wondering about the emissions and efficiency of the individual units on this website. I do not see them listed in the specifications.
