Our home came with the CD36RN fireplace. I wanted to get the thermostatically controlled blower. We ordered it from the FirePlace Store. It arrived in two days. My husband and I installed it ourselves. I was pleased with customer service with answering all of our questions.Dierdre in Atlanta, GA

What's rear vent? Is it adaptable to an existing vertical piping system?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 28, 2013

Answer:
Rear vent systems are designed with venting horizontally through an outside wall in mind. While they can be used in a top vent setup, it is generally better to purchase a fireplace that is already configured as a top vent model. Depending on the pipe that is existing, you may be able to adapt the unit to work with the current chimney.

By Tom from IL on April 15, 2014
Do the glass doors open?
By Will M. on April 15, 2014

Answer:
Direct vent fireplaces can not be operated with the glass removed or open. While the glass front has the appearance of doors, it is not meant to be removed unless you are cleaning the appliance. These fireplaces utilize a two pipe system. One pipe draws air in for combustion and the other is the exhaust. Removing the glass would simply cause the fire to extinguish.

By Toby Wiik from Carlsbad, CA on July 18, 2012
Is this fireplace legal in California?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on July 18, 2012

Answer:
Depending on your jurisdiction, it may or may not be suitable for use. In some areas of California, there is a restriction against using millivolt systems that utilize a standing pilot light, which this model has. You may need to look for a direct vent fireplace with an electronic ignition, which eliminates the standing pilot. A similar model to this with an electronic ignition would be the Vantage Hearth 36 Inch Upgradable VersaFire Direct Vent Natural Gas Fireplace.

We have several other options for 36 inch direct vent fireplaces with electronic ignitions. Please let us know if you are interested in other models.

By sam from Chicago on February 8, 2013
I need the vent to exit the top of the unit. Do you have a model similar to this that is vented from the top?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 11, 2013

Answer:
This exact unit is available in a top vent model. The top vent version can be seen here.

By Barbara from Millbury, MA on January 21, 2013

By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 21, 2013

Answer:
While you can certainly add a blower and a remote thermostat to this fireplace, neither are included. Please see your options below:

The fireplace shown looks like a b vent with the glass front. Is this just a different picture?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 8, 2011

Answer:
You are correct. At one time, FMI offered this unit as a B-vent/Direct Vent convertible model. It is shown in the photo as a B-vent conversion.

The direct vent model that we currently offer would have the sealed glass window and coaxial vent system that is characteristic of a direct vent model.

By Roy from Houston, TX on May 24, 2013
Do you have recommendations on how I can get this fireplace installed?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on May 28, 2013

Answer:
For your reference, you may use the NFI (National Fireplace Institute) website to locate a local certified installer in your area. Their website is www.nficertified.org. Once there, just click on the "Public" link on the right hand side and enter your zip code.

By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 22, 2013

Answer:
This fireplace weighs 105 lbs. You can see the illustrated, detailed dimensions of the unit on page 8 of
the owner's manual.


By Lynn from Iowa on November 13, 2012
This unit is called a rear vent yet the picture shows a top vent. Am I missing something?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 14, 2012

Answer:
This unit is available in both top and rear vent versions. The default photo provided to us from the manufacturer only depicts the top vent version. However, if the item title states that the unit is a rear vent, this is the vent configuration that will be shipped.

By Celeste from Garland, Texas on November 23, 2012
We have an old fireplace with a rusted fire box. It does have a gas line. Could we use this to replace it? We have done several large home remodeling projects on our own (an entire gutting & redo of the kitchen), but are just starting our research on fireplaces.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 23, 2012

Answer:
By your description, it sounds as if you have a prefabricated fireplace currently installed, so a manufactured unit such as the FMI Cottage could certainly be used to replace it.

By karen delbeck from Burlington, VT on November 24, 2012
Is it child friendly? Is it hot to the touch, and will it heat a 500-ft room easily? Does it have a blower?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 26, 2012

Answer:
Being that the unit uses a tempered glass pane, I would definitely recommend using a screen or barrier around the unit, as the glass will be significantly hotter than a ceramic glass unit.

The unit is indeed suitable to heat a 500 square foot area.

A blower is available and can be located in the "Accessories" tab above.

By dave from Amarillo, Texas on October 27, 2012
With moderate use, how much should I expect my gas bill to increase?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 29, 2012

Answer:
Based on current national average gas prices, this unit would cost approximately 25 cents per hour of operation. If you were to use this unit for an average of 15 hours of time per week, that would add approximately $15 a month to your gas bill. Local cost of fuel will vary, so the final number will be dependent on your gas supplier's rates.

By Mike from Moline, Illinois on September 28, 2013
I am working on a new construction, Modular home, 6" exterior walls, with a room being built behind a wall with a fireplace (see attached drawing). We are building a utility room / breezeway behind the wall with the fireplace. I am looking to vent off a side wall. Besides having a HVAC/plumber hook up a gas line, what does it take to install a vent kit and can a home owner install that if it will pass inspection? We are looking at 36" direct vent but already set on a brand.
By Kevin E. - NFI Certified Specialist on September 29, 2013

Answer:
The FMI Cottage is indeed capable of venting horizontally for up to (and beyond) 4' 6". However, the appliance is only capable of supporting a 26" horizontal run with no vertical rise. For this length of horizontal run, a vertical rise of 2' would be required before turning the vent horizontal. Can your plans be altered to allow for this length of vertical rise? We do recommend that a certified professional install the appliance and venting.
