Melissa reviews the colonial insert by Vogelzang. This insert is designed to get the most efficient transfer of heat energy from the wood fuel and radiate it into your living environment. The air-tight, high efficiency Colonial wood burning fireplace insert continuously produces maximum heat output. Boasting 69,600 BTU's per hour, and an efficiency rating of 76%.
The Colonial has a continuous burn time of up to 8 hours on a single load of hardwood. The 20.5" wide x 12" deep, firebrick lined fire box will accept logs up to 18" long and will heat up to 1800 square feet of space. The firebrick lining helps to insulate the stove so that there is less unintended heat loss from the unit, allowing the heat to be distributed as desired. It also aidsin the efficiency and longevity of your stove.The Colonial also includes a variable speed (125 CFM) blower to allow you to move more of that warm air into the room. Perfect for heating your Great Room or open living area.
The heavy duty all cast iron door features a large 16.5" x 9", "air-washed" ceramic galss window, which allows an incredible view of the fire. What an air wash system does is consistently draws air from the top of the stove down past the ceramic glass window. This effectively prevents the tar and soot that would normally build up, restricting your view and making maintenance a chore.
This fireplace insert includes a "hearth surround" (31" x 44") with pewter trim makes the Colonial fireplace insert a beautiful addition to any living space.The large surround allows the colonial to be used in most common fireplace openings. An extra large (50" x 31") surround is available and can be purchased separately.
