Flush fireplace insert
We are in the process of starting to build a house. We would like a real fireplace but are considering putting a insert in it. We have looked at several flush wood burning inserts such as Lopi Declaration, FPX elite 33, and Avalon perfect fit. They are running close to $3000 for the inserts plus accessories (more than we were hoping to spend). It will be secondary heat and hopefully save a little $. We live in middle TN so the weather is not to cold. On the other hand I like the look of a real fireplace and the initial cost will be cheaper. IÂm not sure if we should bite the bullet and go with the insert or just have a real fireplace. Will a real fireplace produce any heat? How about with a blower?
Is there a online store that sell the above fireplace inserts mentioned?
