How to Measure for a Fireplace Insert

A fireplace insert is a device that is designed to be inserted into an existing fireplace. It is a self-contained unit that includes a firebox, a set of burners, and a flue. The insert is typically made of metal and is designed to be more efficient and effective at heating a room than an open fireplace.
To ensure an appropriately sized insert is selected, you will need to take the following measurements:

Step 1: Measure the Front Width

Step 2: Measure the Front Height

Step 3: Measure the Back Width

Step 4: Measure the Depth

Step 5: Measure the Hearth to Mantel Height

After completing the following steps you should now have:
1. Fireplace front width___________________________
2. Fireplace front height___________________________
3. Fireplace back width___________________________
4. Fireplace depth_______________________________
5. Hearth to mantel height_________________________

Now you can use these measurements to purchase an appropriately sized fireplace insert.
