Wood Stove & Insert Benefits
Factory Built ( Zero-Clearance)
Modern fireplaces are engineered as a firebox enclosed within a steel cabinet. Air circulates between the inner and outer boxes transferring the heat to your room and keeping the outer wall relatively cool. Spacers surrounding the cabinet allow it to be installed close to the wood framing in new construction or remodeling.
Compared to a site-built fireplace (masonry), factory-built systems are surprisingly inexpensive to purchase and install. They use a safe, lightweight chimney and do not need the additional structural support required for a masonry chimney. They can be easily and safely installed in almost any room.
