When i was younger, my folks had a fireplace insert that had a door on it and when it got hot enough, a fan would come on and blow all that hot air out into the room. A big living room could be 85 degrees in no time at all.
I have moved into a newer home, and I want to know if this type of insert or stove can be added. I ask because my parents fireplace was actually masonry, or as i call it a true hearth. Mine is not made like that. It is basically wood framed, masonry ont eh outside, but basically a hollow framed core on the inside. The fireplace i have is what i would call a low clearance kind. Its pretty big, but its not a true hearth. Its manufactured. While i can build all teh fire i want in it and heat the room, its obviously not very efficient. Can i put an insert in this type of fireplace?
EDIT: I do not mean "I" as in, me do it. I mean can i have one put in. I do not know the model of fireplace i have now, but its a majestic.
