Hey everyone and thank you for taking the time to read my post and reply. I have a large fireplace in the basement of my 4000 square ft raised ranch and would like to have an insert installed to supplement my oil heat as much as possible. Now I know I will not be about to heat the entire house with an insert but the more heat I can extract from an insert the better. My other half prefers the look of a flush mounted insert but that is not a must have. So if anyone can give me some recommendations on inserts or even brands so I can try to narrow down my options and pull the trigger by this week on which insert I am buying. Also I do not want a cat insert. Thank you for your time and any responses you make have a appreciate it.
