WOOD FIREPLACE INSERT COMPARISON PAGE

Sorted By: FIREBOX SIZE & FUEL CAPACITY

Sweepy

Big fireboxes are nice. They are easier to load, and can often accomodate those extra-long pieces that somehow find their way into the woodpile. When choosing your fireplace insert, however, keep in mind that inserts with larger fireboxes will produce higher heat output, and easy fueling is a dear price to pay for being cooked out of the house.

To sort the table, click the column header (ie; Fireplace Size, Shipping Weight, etc.)

Note: Wood fireplace insert firebox size and fuel capacity don't tell the whole story.

Rule of thumb indicates that a larger firebox will hold a fire longer between refuelings, but that doesn't always hold true. The Pacific Super insert has a medium-sized firebox (1.97 cu. ft.), yet will hold a fire nearly as long as its big brother, the Pacific Summit, which has a firebox measuring 3 cubic feet!
