Depending on the model purchased, the insert will either fit flush with the fireplace face brick or protrude onto the hearth. The protruding design is more efficient since it provides additional radiant heat from the exposed top and sides. The National Fire Protection Association requires that fireplace inserts be installed with a direct connection between the insert exhaust outlet and nearest section of flue liner. This allows smoke and gases faster passage and less time to condense in the flue and form hazardous creosote.
