What the Osburn 1700 Wood Insert might lack in size, it makes up for in efficiency (78%) and heating capability (up to 1800 square feet). With new efficiency standards you get more heat from less firewood. You can get the same heat output with a few modest sized logs compared to fueling a hungry old, inefficient wood burning stove with the Osburn 1700 Insert.

This fireplace insert can be placed into your existing brick or stone fireplace. With exceptional efficiency and a beautiful faceplate it is sure to not only look better but save you time, money, and wood.

Osburn Stoves and inserts are the premium stove line for one of the largest wood stove manufacturer's in North America. Here are some of the features that sets Osburn apart from other stove manufacturers:

  • Kiln Fired Clay Firebrick- Which hold up longer than pumice bricks to keep the inside of the stove hotter and burn the wood more completely.
  • Stainless Steel Secondary Air Tubes- Which introduce new oxygen into the firebox creating a secondary ignition which gets more heat from less wood.
  • Heavy Steel Construction- Made from a 3/16"" steel body and a 1/4"" thick steel top which carries a lifetime warranty.
  • Ceramic Glass- Which can withstand high temperatures and still allows you to enjoy the fire.
  • An Air Wash System- To help keep the glass clean when the stove is in use.

Clean burning, non-catalytic wood burning stoves introduce new oxygen into the firebox before the smoke leaves the stove. The new oxygen is ignited, creating a secondary burn. This generates more heat and creates a cleaner burn. A wood burning insert will turn an inefficient open fireplace into a productive heat source. An open fireplace often pulls more heated air (that you already paid to heat) from your home than it produces. Most wood burning inserts will burn between 70% and 85% efficient. This increase in efficiency means you will get much longer burn times and get much more heat while using much less firewood. Less work, more gain. The included blower will give the insert a boost and push heat into your home more quickly.

Questions and Answers

Customer Questions
Will this work in zero clearance fireplace?
This wood burning insert will not work in a zero clearance fireplace. The Osburn 1700 Wood Burning Insert is only approved for masonry fireplaces. If you have any further questions, please call us and we will be happy to assist you.
How to cure paint on stove?
High heat paint has two types of resin, meaning one will dry at room temperature and one will dry at a high temperature (475+ degrees.) This process allows the resin to completely dry and harden to form a tight seal. Cured paint will have a duller appearance than the initial layer of wet paint. There are many helpful steps and guides online to cure a stove. If you have any further questions, please call us and we will be happy to assist you.
Does the price include a blower?
Yes, a blower (up to 144 CFM) is included. If you have any further questions, please call us and we will be happy to assist you.
