When your fireplace is too small for an insert to fit in to it, the Hearth Heater is a possible option. These units have been designed to fit in front of your fireplace. The flue outlet is very low compared to a freestanding stove and will fit most fireplaces.
These units are Medium sized and can heat between 1000 and 2000 sq. ft. depending on the unit. They can be made from steel, Soap Stone or Cast Iron. These stoves are all EPA Approved, non-catalytic. They have a 6" flue collar (unless noted otherwise) and have many options availble.
Three areas to consider for installing a hearth heater:
Is your current hearth deep enough for the hearth heater to sit properly in front of your fireplace?
Most fireplaces will require and addition hearth extension.
The mantle clearance on hearth heaters is generally greater than on an insert.
Any questions about these hearth heaters please feel free to contact us. We look forward to answering your questions.
Note: If you are within the SCAQMD’s jurisdiction, restrictions may apply to installation and use of a wood burning stove.
