Summers Heat 1,500 Sq. Ft. Wood Fireplace Insert

Wood: 50-SNC13I

If you’re looking for a fireplace insert for your home, this model is an excellent choice for heating an area of up to 1,500 sq. ft. A member of our new-generation, non-catalytic family of wood stoves, it is very efficient:  able to produce up to 60,000 BTU’s from a 1.8 cu. ft. firebox that can hold logs up to 18 in. long.


It is also very clean: only 2.6 grams of emissions, definitely E.P.A. Certified (and WA State Approved). Couple that with an extra-large door glass with air wash, and this stove becomes a perfect fit for any moderately-sized home. This is a compact, “Flush-mount” type of design that needs only 14 in. of hearth to rest on, so it fits nearly any masonry fireplace. Fireplace cover (approximately 30 in. high x 43 in. wide, will cover 28 3/8 in. high x 41 ½ in. wide opening) is included, as is the room air blower, which helps with heat circulation. Please Note: For masonry, Direct Connect fireplace installation only. We recommend professional installation. Cover plate trim and lip and window trim are options and may be purchased later.

  • Fireplace cover (backplate) included

How can I get a copy of my product’s Owner’s Manual?

What’s so great about being EPA and Washington State Certified?

Look  for this “EPA Certified” logo throughout our site:

Our stoves are EPA Certified

Most of our stoves are EPA Certified, which means that an independent, accredited laboratory has tested the stove and determined that it meets EPA Phase II particulate emissions limit standards (7.5 grams or less per hour for non-catalytic wood stoves & pellet stoves, 4.1 grams or less per hour for catalytic stoves). 

Washington State takes its requirements even further: wood stoves offered for sale in the state of Washington must meet a particulate emissions limit of 4.5 grams per hour for non-catalytic wood stoves & pellet stoves
and 2.5 grams per hour for catalytic.

What does this mean for you?  Besides having peace of mind that you are burning "cleaner and greener” with far less pollution, EPA certified wood and pellet stoves are often much higher in efficiency than uncertified units.  This means you use less fuel for the same amount of heat, saving you money!


For more info visit the United States Environmental Protection Agency website at http://www.epa.gov/oecaerth/resources/publications/monitoring/caa/woodstoves/certifiedwood.pdf

Do you have a basic diagram of the brick layout (inserts with ‘13’ in model number)?

How do I install the AC-13BA blower (wood insert model)?

Click Here for instructions detailing the installation of the blower for our wood fireplace inserts with '13' in the model number.

What is this white board(s) and tubes that are in the top of my wood stove? How do I replace it?

PLEASE NOTE:  The non-catalytic wood stove models utilize a new technology, which includes a ceramic fiber board that is located in the firebox,

and rests on top of 3 stainless steel tubes. (Stoves with a '30' in the model number have 4 stainless steel tubes, and 2 pieces of fiber board).

DO NOT remove this fiber board! It is a necessary component of the firebox. 

Also, please note: The ceramic fiber board may become loose during initial shipping.  Be sure it is lying flat, on top of the stainless steel tubes, and pushed all the way to the back of the unit, with no gaps between it and the back wall. Consult your Owner's Manual, and call Technical Support at (800) 245-6489 if questions.

We also have a 'Walk-Through' Troubleshooting Guide on this site...just go to the main FAQ page and choose 'Troubleshooting' under the Categories, and click Filter.

Will a wood or pellet stove save me money? Is this for me?

We've all heard  many of the great reasons for purchasing a wood (or wood pellet) stove...

Wood and Pellet Stoves Save Money

We've all heard  many of the great reasons for purchasing a wood (or wood pellet) stove.

       A few of the more popular reasons are:
       -It uses renewable fuel
       -The fuel is widely available
       -It makes you more self-reliable and independent from oil, electricity, etc.
       -The heat just feels "better" and the flame is cozy and beautiful to look at

      But the main thing on many people's minds who are considering the purchase of a wood, pellet or multi-fuel stove is:
    "Will a wood stove, multi-fuel or pellet stove save me money?"

Please take a few moments to look below at some of the resources we've gathered that address the advantages of heating with wood or wood pellet fuel.  They cover many of the great perks of burning with wood and pellets, including the reasons listed above - and, yes, we've even included handy fuel calculators, so you can get an idea of how much money you can save. Enjoy!

Fuel Calculators

First things first...

The Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA) has put together a quick Fuel Efficiency Calculator that can give you an idea of how much money you may be able to save annually.  You can even enter your own costs, if you want to be more accurate.

Want to try some other calculators?

Pellet Fuels Institute has a nice Fuel Calculator chart here

And hearth.com has a great Fuel Calculator of their own, here

But wait, there's more...

--We're always touting the fact that we have so many EPA Certified (and WA State approved) wood, pellet and multi-fuel stoves in our line-up. The question has been asked before: "What's so great about that?"
Well, less smoke and more efficiency means that, besides being great for the environment (and easier on your neighbors), it actually saves you even more money.
The EPA has some good information that answers the question:  "Will switching to an EPA Certified stove really save me money?"

--The HPBA also has a short overview of how to choose the right stove for your home, here

--To help you narrow your options and explore the benefits of our stoves even further, we've put together an article that goes into some detail describing how you can choose the best stove for your needs

--Mother Earth News has an article entitled "Is Wood Heating Right for You?"  It covers some of the benefits of heating with wood and helps you decide if it's really for you.
