Just wondering about my fireplace looking to buy a insert but I can only fit a small insert that does 1000 sq feet. Would it be possible to fit a larger size insert to fit. I know they have ajustable insert but looking for 1500 sq and Iam about 4 inch from across the back to fit this size insert go figure 2 inch on both side.

RE: wood insert

There actually a good deal to be said for having a smaller stove and keeping a bright fire going in it, rather than having a large stove to heat the house on the coldest day of the year and having it oversized 99% of the time.

RE: wood insert

Number one, you don't want the insert to heat the whole house. The bedrooms are always cooler. So you want to heat the area around the insert. Putting in a properly sized unit is far better than an oversized one.
