    For gas logs, do we have to have vents or can we purchase "vent free"?

    By Kevin E. - NFI Certified Specialist on February 6, 2014

    As a resident of California, you would need to purchase a vented gas log set. This is simply due to the fact that California prohibits the installation of vent free appliances. Vented log sets require a complete, working chimney.

    I am building a new house. I want to put in an efficient wood burning fireplace. Actually more like a wood stove but permanently built in. What do I need to look at?
    By Tyler M. on May 27, 2014

    We recommend a closed-combustion chamber model for an efficient means of heating a large area. Please see a couple of examples below:

    Flame Monaco XTD EPA Zero Clearance Wood Burning Fireplace

    Majestic 36 Inch Royal Monarch Circulating Wood Burning Fireplace

    Please let us know if you have any questions about either model, and we do offer a few other, more expensive (and more decorative) models. If you want a full quote for either fireplace with its required chimney pipe, please fill out our Chimney Pipe Design & Quote Form, or simply reply to this email with basic information (height needed, offsets, roof pitch, etc.) and a shipping zip code.

    I'm wanting a corner wood burning fireplace but need a firebox smaller then 36 inches. It needs to be 32 inches or less. In my home in Texas we had a gas firebox that we converted to a wood burning with a gas starter. Can you buy a direct vent firebox (they come in smaller sizes) and do the same thing? I was told you could but now I live in Colorado and I am having problems with people understanding what I want. I do not want a blower for heat just for ambiance and to smell the wood burning, not a heat source..
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 3, 2013

    I am not aware of a direct vent gas fireplace that can be converted for use as a wood burning fireplace. Gas fireplaces lack the insulation, reinforcement, and depth to be safely operated with wood.

    Unfortunately, the wood burning units that we offer are no smaller than 36 inches in width. A width under 36 inches is rarely called for, so the manufacturers we work with simply do not produce this size. I apologize that we do not have a product for your needs.

    I need a 42' wood burning fireplace and chimney. I am building an addition and want to install this against a wall and have it framed in. Can you please show me what I need to buy to do this job complete and under a County Permit?

    We have a variety of zero-clearance woodburning fireplaces from which you can choose. You can see our full selection below:

    I am looking for a high end wood burning fire box with interior masonry fire bricks in a herring bone pattern, black metal facing, and no pattern. What would you suggest?

    Does anyone make a blower less electric fireplace? I do not want the heat to blow but I do want heat.

    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 4, 2013

    I have not come across a brand that does not use a fan to help convect the heat. Because the heating element is sealed inside the unit, the fan is necessary to push heat from within the casing into the room. Many models exist that allow the light effect to work on its own, but the heater and fan will always work together.

    Do they make a fireplace firebox with an ash clean out?
    By Will M. on December 29, 2015

    By Scott from NJ on November 1, 2014
    I am looking for the wood burning sealed units that are installed into a new framed construction. They pull air from outside to burn and circulate air with a fan to heat. Someone called them "positive pressure systems" but I don't know. Some have a catalytic converter in them to recirculate and re-burn gases. What would you suggest?
    By eFireplaceStore on November 3, 2014

    We offer a few of these systems, although they use a secondary air recirculation system with baffles, in place of a catalyst. The most popular item is the Flame Monaco XTD EPA Zero Clearance Wood Burning Fireplace. Other systems with more facing options are the Superior WCT4820 Custom Series EPA Phase II Circulating Wood-Burning Fireplace, the Superior WCT6820 Signature Series EPA Phase II Circulating Wood-Burning Fireplace, and the Superior WCT6840 Signature Series EPA Phase II Circulating Wood-Burning Fireplace.

    We are looking for a firebox that will be installed in a screen room in Florida. We plan on burning fire wood logs in it. I'm looking for probably a 32". What would you recommend?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on August 2, 2013

    Our smallest woodburning fireplace is a 36" model, please see the two versions of it here:

    FMI Bungalow - Builder 36 Inch Circulating Wood Burning Fireplace

    FMI Bungalow - Builder 36 Inch Radiant Wood Burning Fireplace - Smooth Face

    This is a basic, decorative fireplace for burning wood. We also supply the required FMI 8" chimney pipe, and we can provide a quote for everything needed for installation, if desired.

    How do you remove a Heatform firebox from a masonry fireplace?
    By eFireplaceStore on November 14, 2014

    Most Heatform fireplace boxes had overlapping masonry on the front and upper edge of the unit. Because each installation is different, I recommend having a mason come out to inspect the setup, as some installations actually relied on the metal chassis to support the brick veneer.

    By Pragnesh Patel from Bethlehem, PA on February 21, 2013
    I have a gas fireplace which is vented through the chimney. The fireplace is not sealed. During a recent power failure I used it but it does not throw any heat in the room; you only feel it if you sit in front of it. What do I need to do to make it an efficient fireplace and a supplemental heat source?
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on February 21, 2013

    The best way to make an open fireplace an efficient heating appliance is to install a wood burning insert. The chimney will likely need to be relined to vent this new appliance but the insert will produce truly usable heat.

    I have an opening for electric fireplace, that currently has an electric heater with a mantle surround. There is no firebrick. What do I need to change for an unvented gas logs?
    By Brennan W. on January 6, 2017

    In order to change to unvented gas logs, you would need a full firebox that could contain them and would fit in your opening.

    Do you offer a 4' x 6' firebox?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 20, 2013

    My apologizes, but we do not carry a premanufactured firebox of this size. Because of the very large dimensions, this type of unit would likely need to be custom made and listed by a fabricator.

    By Josephine from Oneonta, NY on October 17, 2016
    We purchased a vent free fireplace log unit and have not hooked it up yet. What kind of firebox will we need?

    By Will M. on October 18, 2016

    The minimum hearth dimensions will be described in the installation manual included with your ventless log set. You should choose a ventless firebox that meets or exceeds these minimum requirements.

    By Elizabeth from Barrington, Illinois on February 24, 2014
    What are the dimensions of the smallest size fire box available? I am looking for a firebox to fit this fireplace mantle, and I would like gas and a direct vent. The fireplace is going on an outside wall. There is no chimney so it has to be a direct vent or vent free. Any Suggestions?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on February 24, 2014

    We have several small direct vent gas fireplaces that can be rear-vented and terminate horizontally on your exterior wall. Please see a couple of our smallest units below:

    Empire Tahoe Deluxe Direct Vent Natural Gas Fireplace - 32" - DVD-32-FP30N

    Napoleon GD33NR Direct Rear Vent Gas Fireplace - 34-in.

    Empire Tahoe Deluxe Clean Face Direct Vent Gas Fireplace with Direct Ignition - 32 Inch

    I need a fire box that will fit an opening 33" x 27" opening and it has to be 15" deep. It also angles to 27" at the back.
    By Will M. on January 2, 2017

    Please note that the products advertised in this product category are designed to be framed in with combustible framing and used with separately purchased venltess gas logs. As it sounds like you may have an existing prefabricated wood burning or masonry fireplace, the hearth systems offered here may be better suited for your needs. If you indeed are in need of a ventless firebox, please provide clarity for your application and we will look into locating suitable fireboxes.

    Can your gas fireplace inserts be used and shipped to California?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 11, 2013

    California has strict guidelines for installation of both gas and wood burning fireplaces. Vent free appliances are not allowed by law and wood burning fireplaces must be EPA Tier II certified, meaning that they have an output of 7.5 grams or less of material per hour.

    While we can ship most of our units to all 50 states, local code will often prevent non certified units from being installed in your state.

    By Chuck from Las Vegas on December 10, 2012
    We have an existing natural gas fireplace in our living room. It doesn't work with our placement of furniture, etc. It is vented with a chimney, on an outside wall. Can we remove the mantle piece, close the wall and move the existing firebox outside? Do we need to buy a new firebox, like the one we viewed here? An outside, vented fireplace would be awesome! Is this do-able? Costly?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 10, 2012

    Unfortunately, no, your existing firebox would need to be made of stainless steel for outdoor usage. We do offer a variety of wood-burning and vent-free gas outdoor fireplaces that can be installed on a covered patio or deck. The wood-burning fireplaces are vented and can have gas log sets installed within them.

    Please see all of our outdoor fireplaces options here: Patio Fireplaces

    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 10, 2012

    It may indeed be possible to use the existing chimney for an outdoor unit; however, you will definitely need to switch to a different firebox. Indoor units are not designed to deal with constant exposure to outside air and will not last.

    Another option may be a unit such as the Alpine Outdoor 36 in. Natural Gas Vent Free Fireplace System. Being a vent-free unit, the chimney would no longer be needed.

    By Pete from West Jefferson, OH on October 26, 2016
    How does one install the natural gas pipe into the firebox?
    By Brennan W. on October 26, 2016

    Generally, the gas line is run into the unit by means of a knockout on the side of the fireplace.
