At Northeastern Fireplace & Design, we offer a wide variety of prefabricated fireplace appliances. Because they don’t need to be masoned, prefabricated fireplaces are relatively easier and a lot cheaper to install compared to a traditional open-hearth fireplace. It also means that they can be placed almost anywhere in the home. Prefabricated fireplaces offer a variety of fuel choices including wood, gas, and electricity. Whether you want the ambiance of a real wood burning fireplace or the ease of use that comes with operating a gas or electric fireplace, we have a wide selection to choose from at Northeastern Fireplace & Design.


If you have an older fireplace that doesn’t quite work as well as it used to, an insert might be the choice for you. Older fireplaces do have a homey, rustic look that is desirable to many, but they lack efficiency. The work that goes into maintaining them is not worth it to many homeowners. Inserts bring new life to your older fireplace. At Northeastern Fireplace & Design we offer a variety of fireplace inserts.

An insert is an appliance that is installed inside the firebox of an already existing fireplace, in essence, replacing the old firebox. Fireplace inserts are constructed with a steel shell which directs heat into your living area, instead of up and out of your chimney as would a traditional hearth fireplace. This makes it a wonderful option for those wishing to switch to a more efficient heating system. You can burn a variety of fuels with an insert including wood, gas, and pellets.


Heating stoves have gained a lot of popularity in the last couple of decades. One of the primary reasons stoves have become so popular is because they have high heating efficiency compared to most heating systems. This is especially true for wood burning stoves which contain a secondary combustion chamber that allows for hot, slow-burning fires. Stoves are a stand-alone appliance, meaning there are a lot of options for home placement.

It can be difficult installing a new hearth appliance. There are a lot of regulations related to clearance and safety which must be followed during the installation process.That is why you should always leave a new appliance installation to a qualified hearth appliance and ventilation expert. At Northeastern Fireplace & Design all of our ventilation technicians have been trained on the building codes and installation practices regarding installing your new appliance. We’ll install your appliance safely and correctly the first time.
