This unit requires a 6" pipe - typically a stainless steel flex pipe. Most flu dampers installed in a fireplace are not going to allow a 6" diameter pipe through the opening. I had to cut pieces of my flu damper since it was close to 6" but not quite. It is common to render your fireplace flu damper useless after install of a stove insert. I think its the law - but the manufacturer gives you a small steel placard to affix to the fireplace wall behind your stove if you made any modifications to it - warning folks not to use it as a normal fireplace afterwards.

I've not had to clean the glass on my insert. I burn a pretty hot fire most of the time and as a result any carbon would just burn off. I will probably give the stove a thorough cleaning, glass and all, during the summer.

Glass will fog/blacken when damper is closed. Sometimes worse than others depending on how seasoned the wood was I assume. I have had to clean it several times.

answer 2
Short answer - yes, in most cases. I'd recommend you do some more research on NFPA standards or consult a professional (even if you don't contract them to do the installation for you, having a pro inspect your chimney top-to-bottom, and give you an assessment on the state of your masonry, can be invaluable.) Installing a stove like this is serious. You're not just "improving" the fireplace...you're converting it into a heating system, and incorrectly vented wood stoves can lead to creosote build up, chimney fires, and premature failure of the chimney/flue system itself.
At a minimum, you need a length of venting from the stove up to the first full masonry tile in the flue. (This is minimum NFPA standard.) Slightly more expensive to vent all the way to the top of the chimney, but this in effect completely seals the stove to chimney top passage, and helps with fire starting and overall heat retention in the house when you're not burning. Good luck!

Question

Will the recommended faceplate fit?

The opening for my fireplace is 43"L x 28"w? With 1" of clearance (the advertised faceplate is 44l x 29w) should I use the larger faceplate identified in the .pdf file (32” x 50”). If so, can I get it through Northern?
