    Has anyone installed an Enviro Boston 1700-C in a Zero Clearance type construction/installation? I've looked a quite a few ZC models and narrowed it down to the Enviro and the Napoleon NZ3000. I like the look and simplicity of the Enviro and would like to hear from anyone that did a ZC install with theirs.

    Substantial price difference between the Enviro Boston 1700-C and Napoleon NZ3000 but may be worth it for the additional options with the Napoleon...? Would appreciate any feedback on either or both installs. Scottie O's install thread was very helpful and also read the other related threads about the door/gasket issue with the NZ3000.
    Thank you in advance.

    The price difference is easy to explain. One is an insert and one is a complete zc fireplace. They are not the same animals at all.

    The insert is the same stove as the free standing one. And several people here have them and I have never heard anything but raves about them.

    As to installation, that is all unique to your fireplace/chimney. Especially with a ZC.
