Type: Built-In

Although they're made like inserts, with metal box-within-a-box construction, built-in units don't require an existing fireplace or chimney. Vented units with fixed glass panels cycle air 
and exhaust directly through an exterior wall opening. Vent-free ones, which exhaust into the room, have a fixed metal screen or glass panel.

Price: $2,000 to $4,000; includes installation but not the mantel or surround.
Shown: Cerona 42-inch direct-vent fireplace, 29,000-Btu output (maximum), $3,808; Heat & Glo
