The Q1 gas insert is designed to fit into very small fireplaces like those found in historic homes. The simply framed fire adds a contemporary style to your fireplace while converting it to a powerful source of heat for your home. A hand-held thermostat remote control keeps the room comfortable by modulating the flame to maintain a consistent warmth, rather than turning the burner on & off, a feature offering greater efficiency than other fireplace inserts on the market. Set back from the decorative front so it's unobtrusive, the glass window prevents your warm air from being exhausted out of the chimney, keeping the room cozy. Two 3" diameter chimney liners are installed; one brings combustion air from outdoors, while the other liner exhausts the fumes. This offers the ultimate in fireplace efficiency and safety. Starting life as the unadorned little insert shown right (and still available this way), the Q1 features a new option with an ornate Victorian cast iron surround in either black or bronze finish. When using the Victorian trim package the Q1 insert will fit in a fireplace as small as 13" deep.

Because of the unobtrusive design of the top louvers, sometimes the Q1 contemporary insert can be used WITH your existing antique cast iron surround. Check the dimensions of your surround's opening and if it's larger than 20-1/4" wide and 28" tall then you may be able to keep the original appeal of your vintage fireplace while upgrading to a highly efficient gas heating system with the Q1 insert.

You may find it's easier to detach your cast iron surround, install the Q1 insert. Use one of the available trim panels and then attach your antique cast iron trim to the trim panel. The 30" x 30" trim panel is usually the ideal size.

Victorian Trim 

We're so proud to bring you this option as we worked with the manufacturer to develop it. The Victorian trim was specifically designed to bring the look of an AMERICAN style cast iron fireplace trim to the market. Available in either black or bronze, it offers versatile installation options as well.

It's shown left with an optional trim panel measuring 36W x 34H, but this is not necessary for installation. It can be used with the cast iron trim only which measures 30W x 30-1/2H. 

The Victorian trim comes with a rear extension (see detail in the photo of the bronze trim) which allows a 
reduced depth installation of just 13".
