Last year I purchased a woodburning fireplace insert. They installed it and a chimney liner in early October. I absolutely love it! I live in WNY any have forced air gas heat in my home, but since this was a woodburning insert, I was eligible for a large tax credit. What I learned during my research was that it really would be best to have professionals do the installation. There are probably fireplace stores where you live - call them with this information: measure the opening to your fireplace height and width. Also measre front to back, and the height and width of the back wall of the inside of your fireplace. Measure how many inches there are from the top of the fireplace opening to the mantle, and how many inches the tiled or brick floor goes out from the front of the fireplace. THEN measure how tall your woodburning stove is and its height and width. measure from the ground how many inches up the tube at the back of the stove is and its circumference. The pros at a fireplace store will be able to tell you if it is a reasonable option to move the stove, and will give an estimate for them to do it. Check with several places, not just one. GOOD LUCK -- keep us posted.
