Wood Stoves and Fireplace Inserts:
Wood stoves and inserts are very similar. The main difference is that an insert is designed to fit into a fireplace opening, with reduced clearances and less projection into the room than putting a wood stove on the hearth. If the stove is going to be standing on its own you need a free standing wood stove. If it is being piped through a fireplace opening you should use an insert. Most models/styles of freestanding stoves have an insert version. We give the dimensions of the free-standing stoves, insert size is determined by the fireplace you already have and we can take the measurements to see what will fit.We have 3 brands of wood stoves/inserts, Enviro and Regency, shown below and just recently picked up DutchWest which will be pictured here soon!. All pictures are provided by the manufacturers.
