No...doesn't come with the faceplate, but you will need one....most places charge about $99 for the faceplate. You see it in every review, because it's a necessity...should be included, since you need it.

Since the electric blower motor uses about the same as a 25 watt light bulb, buy a 200 watt 12v inverter, hook it up to a 12v car or marine battery, and plug the fireplace insert into that. You'll get a few hours of run time, and then you can recharge that battery by connecting it to your installed car battery with jumper cables, with the car idling in the driveway.

Northern tool (when I bought mine) didn't sell a liner, but you can purchase one online. It's also recommended to insulate the liner with a ceramic blanket. Check out the auction sites and other retailers to compare prices and read more information about installation.

Since you are working on a chimney, and a faulty chimney can burn down your house, and a faulty unlicensed installation can void your insurance, hire a pro, no matter how much it costs.

I wouldn't recommend it. I'm not sure that the fiberglass was meant to withstand that high of a temperature and even if it does, it's not as dense as the ceramic insulation. The ceramic insullation also has a thick aluminum foil over it that helps radiate more heat back and keeps the insulation in place.

The ceramic insulation is expensive, but it's easy enough to use. If your chimney flue is in good shape, some people say that you can sometimes get away with no insulation, letting the dead air space provide some insulation for the system. It won't draw quite as good (more heat will be lost to the surrounding chimney) but at least the exaust gasses won't be as slow going out.

I'd recommend 1/2" ceramic blanket made for chimney lining.

The wood stove insert cannot be set up to run through furnace duct work. The wood stove has it's own built in blower to help distribute the heat throughout the home.

No there is no way to hook the insert to your furnace blower but it does have a blower on it that will push heat throughout your whole house nicely. way more efficient than radiant heat
