Hearthstone Wood Insert - Opinons please

Posted by skivino (My Page) on

I can only find posts from 3 years ago regarding the performance of the Hearthstone wood insert, specifically the Morgan (smaller version of the Clydesdale). We are just about to purchase one but the negative opinions (from 3 years ago) have me worried. Does ANYone have experience with this insert? Any comments, good or bad, would be very helpful.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

Hearthstone, soapstone is best used as a stove not an insert. Gives off heat gradually, and the heat continues long after the fire is gone.

I would not recommend this as an insert. Two different animals. You don`t say what your budget will allow, but the best of the best for inserts is the Blaze King (princess insert). Keep you warm for at least 12 hours. But pricey.

A good insert heat machine is the Kodiak,the Summit from PE, and many other steel inserts. And don`t buy one without the blower. Heat can only come from one direction, hence the need of the blower.
