Product Details:


The Century Heating CW2100 is a small compact wood fireplace insert that will fit the smallest of masonry fireplaces. While the firebox is on the smaller end of the spectrum, the CW2100 is capable of accepting up to a 17" log. Producing up to 45,000 BTUs makes the CW2100 insert capable of heating up to 1,200 square feet. A powerful 110 CFM blower is included to help push the heat across the space. The blower cord can be positioned on either the left or the right side of the insert.

The Century Heating CW2100 is an EPA approved non-catalytic stove that is easy to use and runs at an optimum efficiency rating of 82%. The 26" x 42" faceplate is included which utilizes a unique spring attachment and allows you to easily set the faceplate to any hearth material. The springs will tension the faceplate to the hearth without having to set the faceplate manually.

A cuttable 32" x 44" faceplate is available for slightly wider fireplace openings. While the CW2100 is considered a small wood fireplace insert, the 8 1/8" H x 17 3/8" W glass surface is right on par with the large wood insert's viewing area. The flush mount design offers a simple and contemporary look that will go with just about any decor. The CW2100 is a great choice for a smaller fireplace or if you are just looking for an affordable wood stove insert to update your old masonry fireplace.

    Optional Accessories:

    5" Fresh Air Intake Kit

    The 5" Fresh Air Oval Kit is required if you plan on connecting a fresh air intake pipe. The oval adapter kit comes with the oval adapter, 2 clamps and the fresh air intake register hood. The oval adapter is intended for 5" fresh air intake pipe. You will have to manually ovalize the flexible intake pipe to make the connection to the adapter. The oval adapter can be positioned on either side of the stove.

    Rigid Firescreen

    The Rigid Fire Screen allows you to burn wood in the fireplace insert with the door open just like an old-time fireplace. Hear the crackle of the wood, watch the flames dance around in the firebox and relax around the wood insert on a cold winter's night. The Rigid Fire Screen is easy to install and easy to remove when you are ready to load more wood. The fireplace insert should not be burning with the door open without the firescreen.

    32" X 44" Cuttable Faceplate (18 GA)

    The Century Heating CW2100 fireplace insert has one additional option for the faceplate size. The 32" x 44" Cuttable Faceplate is available for fireplaces that are larger than 26" x 36". The Cuttable Faceplate easily attaches to the back of the included faceplate to cover any gaps on large fireplaces. You can cut the top edge and sides of the Cuttable Faceplate to contour an arched fireplace or to minimize the amount of flashing you will see. The cuttable 32" x 44" faceplate is the perfect solution for larger fireplaces.
