Wood burning fireplace inserts add beauty to our living room while improving the heat efficiency of the fireplace. In installing them, we can measure the width of our fireplace from one opening to the other.
The inserts are adjustable to fit the interior dimensions so we can concentrate on buying an insert that suits our taste and style without worrying about exact sizing details. After that, we can swing out the four iron support bars in the inside corners of the fireplace insert and slide them to adjust to the interior width of our fireplace. The bars should move outward on hinges like the legs of a folding table. The next step in installing wood burning fireplace inserts is locking the iron bars into place using pliers to tighten the locking bolts. Then, we can slide the insert completely into the fireplace opening and check the alignment of the four support bars. The bars should fit snugly in the corners. The faceplate of the insert should fit flush with the exterior brick of the fireplace, and there should be no gaps in the corners. Next, we can open the glass doors of the insert and pull back the iron mesh screens using the pull cord.
The installation of wood burning fireplace inserts can be continued by placing an old blanket or other padding over the bottom opening to protect our arms and back. Then, we can tighten the bolts extending from the top of the insert into the fire bar, which is a steel bar across the roof of the fireplace. It may be necessary to turn over on our back and go into the fireplace so we can get a better grip on the bolts and leverage them tighter. After that, we can tighten the bolts on the bottom of the insert into the sides of the fireplace. When properly installed, our fireplace insert will never need to be removed
