Can I use an electric fireplace as an insert for my old wood-burning fireplace?

Absolutely!  There are many cases where an electric fireplace makes great sense to use as an insert in a wood burning fireplace.  Because electrics come in many shapes and sizes, there will likely be a model that will suit your needs.  All that’s necessary is to install a 120 volt electric line into the existing wood fireplace.  By doing this, you won’t see a power cord on the hearth.  The other thing to consider is how to finish off around the electric unit.  Many use a surround panel to eliminate the space from the existing wood fireplace, on the top and both sides of the electric model.
