Just plugging the huge heat sucking hole in the wall that was the fireplace has dramatically cut our heating cost.
There are lots of choices out there. Start with measurements and some research about installation. Most manufacturers will have all this info online.
Last thing is to notify your insurance. It didn't affect our rates, but they will need to know.
