For homeowners who want to install a wood-burning stove, have an existing fireplace and want minimal structural changes to their property, inset log burners are a great option.
An inset log burner is designed to simply slot into a standard sized fireplace opening for an open fire.
This type of appliance allows you to install a log burner without the need to open up the fireplace, as you would in order to accommodate a free-standing appliance.
There are some outstanding inset log burners on the market. Here are a handful of the ones we recommend…
GBS Eco-Inset 7 kW Multi-fuel Stove
The GBS Eco-Inset 7kW is a stylish inset log burner made from steel. It’s a multi-fuel stove, which means smokeless fuels can also be burned on it. It fits into a standard fireplace opening and creates a 7kW heat output.
