If you want to update your fireplace insert by changing from propane to natural gas or vice versa, you will need a conversion kit to adapt the supply lines to the new fuel. Each type of fuel operates at a specific pressure and the parts must be appropriate in order to assure a beautiful fire that looks its best. Be sure to order a kit that is suited for your brand and model of fireplace insert.
I have an Emberglow SCVFR24L propane ventless gas set. I want to convert it to natural gas. Do you have the necessary kit or parts to accomplish this?

Unfortunately, conversion kits are not available for vent free appliances, due to the potential danger that can arise from a unit being improperly converted. When changing fuel types, the entire burner assembly has to be swapped.

I have a Monessen DBX24NT natural gas fireplace insert but I have propane gas. Can my fireplace be converted from natural gas to propane?

Unfortunately, no. This manufacturer only builds their vent free units for certification on one fuel and conversion kits are not offered, due to the potential dangers of an improperly converted unit. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Can gas logs be used without the refractory brick panels that line the insert metal box? I want the inside of the box to be black.

This will depend primarily on the firebox. Many fireboxes can operate without the brick panels, as they are decorative in most cases. However,you will need to provide the manufacturer name and the model number of the fireplace for us to verify this.
