GLOSSARY

Fireplaces - Fireplaces can be either masonry fireplaces or factory-built fireplaces (also called prefabricated or "prefabs"). They are usually open face but most come standard with doors. 

A masonry fireplace is almost always built of bricks. There are some specialty types that are more exotic and use refractory materials, but 99.9% of them are made with bricks.

A factory-built fireplace is a metal box with refractory bricks inside manufactured to be framed into a house, without masonry. Sometimes they are gas fireplaces, but are often for burning wood. 

Insert - An insert can be put into any factory built open faced fireplace. It is important to remember inserts can only go into a fireplace that is built into the home.  

Stove - Freestanding unit. Usually installed in a central location with clearance around all areas of the stove. 
Can be used for cooking or heating.
