Wittus H530 and Morsø 5660
What can you do with a fireplace you hate? It came with the house? It doesn’t draw? It doesn’t throw heat? It sucks all the warm air out of the room? It’s crude? It’s just butt-ugly?
The solution to this might be a fireplace insert. These are made to slide into an existing, code compliant fireplace.
The H530, our biggest selling Wittus unit, is a Danish-made highly efficient heating unit that meets all EPA standards.
Our newest insert, the Morsø 5660 offers the discerning homeowner an unparalleled ‘window of fire’. Clean lines, a huge window and a 4-sided ‘picture-frame’ make the 5660 the epitome of Scandinavian design and function.
Although fireplace inserts are meant to slide into any fireplace, we often find that some firebox alteration is required. This is where buying your insert from Monterey Masonry is better than buying one from a stove shop and then going out and looking for a mason. We can take care of any masonry, in-house.
Here are a few examples that show fireplaces before and after the installation of an H530. You can see the issues and how we have dealt with them. In some cases we completely replaced the fireplace, in others we retrofitted the H530 in the existing fireplace.
