I purchased a Montpelier insert and was told it should be delivered in a couple of weeks. I did research on other products that i never heard of. We haven't heated the house with wood since the 80s. I wish i knew about this web site a week ago. Very informative! I now know the Montpelier is a new insert and doesn't have a history yet. Does anyone have one in operation? Do you like it? Was delivery on time. I have an 80 year old home with a clay tile lined chimney clean. The shop recommended a 4' liner to help with draft and instillation. Does this sound right. The chimney drafted well when used as a fire place. The insert has nice cast iron details and that's what we had back in the day so that is what sold me. Also considered jotel and lope. I was limited with dimensions. The VC Montpelier had a nice fit for my needs.
