Wood Burning Insert in heatalator


Greetings all. Newbie here. I have a fireplace that is a heatalator, in which I want to install a woodburning insert. I have found an insert that will fit, and the existing fireplace has never been used. It's about 5 years old and is up to specs. Can anyone advise me whether or not I can expect any problem with this? Has anyone done this successfully? unsuccessfully? Hints? Suggestions?
Thanks in advance
Ron Z

i would be sure your flue will line up , yes it is poss. to install but be sure you have the existing flue cleaned . and on some heatilator units you cannot remove the refractories because of the heat coming off the wood insert. consult man. about this first.
