Our builder had me look at the BDV 400 fireplace. However, my wife would like a fireplace where she can have open doors. Is there such a fireplace with the same specs as the BDV 400?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on October 15, 2013

Yes, we have a similar unit available as a B-Vent gas fireplace that can utilize optional bi-fold glass doors that can be open or closed. Please see it here:

Can a TV be placed on the wall above a fireplace?
By eFireplaceStore on December 26, 2014

It can, however I highly recommend building the television into a recess within the wall or installing a mantel shelf between the fireplace and the television that projects at least as far as the television does from the wall. This will help to shield the television from heat, which can easily damage it.

We are looking for a shallow depth direct vent natural gas fireplace with optional doors. Approx size 30-36" wide. Which ones do you have?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 17, 2014

All direct vent fireplaces require a solid glass panel, but some do offer an additional "door" kit for added decoration. The glass panel cannot be removed during operation. To see our full selection, please see below:

What is a good gas fireplace that is rated around 40,000 BTU? What is the difference with vented and not vented other than the obvious? What is a good price for a complete package including logs?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on December 30, 2013

There are a number of factors to consider when debating whether to purchase a direct vent gas fireplace or a vent-free gas fireplace. Please see our Gas Fireplace and Stove Buying Guide for analysis. We do offer a couple of models in each category that fit your preference; please see them below:

By Paula from IN on August 17, 2013
We have purchased a model number VFD 36-1, serial # AHV24-20496 propane, vent free fireplace. We would like to know if we can switch from propane to natural gas?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 19, 2013

Because of the dangers of incorrectly converting a vent free fireplace, manufacturers do not produce conversion kit components for them. It is possible to release harmful carbon monoxide into the room if the main burner orifice is not installed correctly. Only factory designed "duel fuel" appliances can use both LP and natural gas. I apologize that I cannot assist you further.

By JP from New Jersey on December 5, 2012
You sell a conversion kit for direct vent Vantage Hearth from propane to natural gas. How safe and efficient is it ? Will it work the same - same output ?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 6, 2012

As long as the kit is correctly matched to your unit and the kit is installed properly, the unit will operate as if it came from the factory with the kit installed. Due to the difference in BTU potential between natural gas and propane, there will be a slight change in the overall output from the unit. Depending on the unit, the output can increase or decrease by up to 2,000 BTUs.

I'm moving into a newly constructed house. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a fireplace but It is a natural gas house. I would like to have one in the family room, which has an exterior wall to the back. How easy or difficult is it to retrofit with one? What would you recommend?
By Will M. on November 24, 2015

There will be several options available that I will recommend. As you have an exterior wall, many Direct Vent Fireplaces offer the ability to vent directly out of an exterior wall. In addition, many will offer optional mantels to provide a finished look when used in this configuration. One such model would be the Empire DVD36FP31N Tahoe Deluxe Direct Vent Fireplace.

By Alan from Boston on October 25, 2013
I'm interested in a B-vent fireplace. If the fireplace is installed in such a way that the vent pipe is enclosed in a space and no combustible materials are closer than 6 inches to the pipe, can I use standard single wall pipe from the fireplace up to the b-vent section that is installed through the roof?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 25, 2013

Single wall pipe cannot be enclosed in a wall, by code. B vent piping must extend from the draft collar on the unit for the entire length of the run to the termination.

By Clyde from Paris, KY on November 23, 2012
I have recently hooked up to natural gas. My existing fire logs are non-vented propane. What do I need to complete this conversion from propane to natural gas on my fire logs?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 23, 2012

You would need a complete replacement, as vent-free appliances cannot be converted for fuel type.

Please reply with your full fireplace dimensions (front width, rear width, opening height, depth, etc.), as well as how you want to control the unit (remote, wall switch or manual), and we will be happy to offer some recommendations.

My home has an indoor, top vented natural gas fireplace manufactured by Martin Hearth and Heating, model number 400dvbnvc. I purchased the home after it was constructed in 2007. I've rarely ever used the fireplace and I have a couple of questions about it if you can help me. I certainly can't find anything at, that website is a dead-end.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 25, 2013

Unfortunately, Martin Hearth is no longer in business and has since been absorbed by Monessen Hearth Systems. Monessen does manufacture a unit that is extremely similar to the model you have, although it now incorporates the Signature Command electronic control system used by most Monessen models. I was unable to find a manual for the original unit, but will certainly do my best to answer any questions you may have about the Martin fireplace.
