"If it is a problem I will insulate under the concreete. "

My advice is to insulate between the structural slab and the hearth bricks.

In addition to the heat retention issue, without insulation you could be heating your structural slab too much. Concrete starts to give up the ghost around 600 F and the reinforcing steel will start to loose strength at temperatures as low as 500F.
