Converting a vintage electric fireplace

I have a mantel/fireplace from the 1970's that has a light element to create a glow for "fire" and it has a blower to use as a heater. I cannot use the heater because it requires a 220 outlet. So, I would really like to update the fireplace. Can I replace all of the old components with a modern insert?
