I have a 1920 craftsman style home. It has 5 coal burning fireplaces. I would love to install gas inserts, but I'm not certain if this is possible. Do you have any suggestions that may prove to be helpful?

Installation of inserts will depend on the sizing of each fireplace. Usually, coal burning fireplaces have a tall, shallow opening that makes installation of an insert unrealistic. If an insert can be used, a custom backer plate usually has to be made to take up the additional space above the unit.
If the chimneys are in good condition, the installation of a coal basket, such as the item you are viewing, may be a better option. The basket can replicate the look of the original coal grate and fire, but is much more efficient to use.

We are interested in the propane coal gas baskets, but they must be ventless. Is this unit ventless, and what other choices would we have for a liquid propane gas vent -free unit?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 12, 2012
Unfortunately, this particular basket is not vent free. Most of the coal baskets we carry are vented, as the coal media has a tendency to give off some byproducts when burned. However, we do offer a couple of options that are vent free. These baskets must be used in conjunction with a decorative front.

What is the overall "height" of this unit? I have a wood burning fireplace that can be converted to gas in a mobile home i want to use this unit in.

Per the manufacturer, the approximate overall height of this unit is 14" at the center of the back arch. This unit can be used in any wood burning fireplace that has been approved for decorative gas hearth appliances.

Is the Hargrove 19" propane coal basket vent-free?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 17, 2012
This product is vented, as are most of the coal and log baskets that we offer. We do offer a pair of ventless coal burners that can be used in conjunction with an existing coal basket.
