Question

Can I use this in a 42" see through fireplace.

I have a 42" see through fireplace can I use this type of fire box to replace it? Right now it has a 12" double wall flue and is 10 years old. Can I just frame the back side closed?

Question

Can I use the insert without the faceplate?

since my fireplace opening has an arched top, the square faceplate would not look good at all. I assume I would need to replace/modify my original damper so it would still close after installing the S.S. liner. Or I suppose i could cut the faceplace to fit inside the opening, but hard to make it fit perfect.

The purpose of the faceplate is to cover the gap between the insert and the rough opening. The faceplate does not affect the function of the insert. The stainless steel liner will run all the way to the top of the chimney and should have fireproof insulation around it. There would have to be a modification so that the insulation stays in the chimney.

This Century fireplace wood insert is an insert only and not a stand alone fireplace. It should be installed only in an existing fireplace. A tube is required going up the chimney and out the roof. Northern does carry the proper tubing for this. See below.

Question

Under features and benefits it states "Includes 32in. x 50in. faceplate". Does this mean it covers a max opening of about 49" W x 31" H??

I have a fireplace opening of 41" W x 30.75" H. Will this faceplate work for me or not? And if it does not, are there different size options available?

Will this product work with my existing chimney pipe. It is 10 inches in diameter & was used for a vented gas log fireplace which could also be used as a wood burning fire place. It was a very expensive chimney pipe & if possible would like to keep it installed & use with your inserts.

Staff Answer
This Century Heating Fireplace Wood Insert has a 6" flue. Northern Tool offers 6" stainless steel flex kits that are designed to be used in an existing chimney. Changing the diameter pipe will greatly reduce the draw of the stove. This can cause potential fire hazard, as well as water and ice damage from condensation. It may be possible to keep your existing chimney with the use of a flex kit. Check local laws and ordinances in your area before making change to chimneys.

answer 2
Not recommended. The stove was designed for 6" and such a large difference would likely cause draft issues. Plus I'm not sure if natural gas pipes are rated differently than wood in terms of ability to take the higher heat for safety reasons. I'm thinking probably. Do yourself a favor and invest in a new 6" SS liner kit. They are surprisingly easy to install...yank the old one out, drop the new one in, and connect on both ends properly.
