Hey guys, I'm looking at getting a wood insert for my masonry fireplace. I have a below grade family room that is cold as hell in the winter unless you blast the heat whereby you overheat the upper floors. I have a source for free wood and the free use of a log splitter so it seems like a no brainer (other than the initial cost of the unit/install)
Both places I've shopped require that the chimney be lined in stainless. Any other things I should be looking for with regards to the installation?
