This BGD36NTR fireplace was in the house I bought. The flame on-off is controlled from a manual switch on the wall. Can I connect a thermostat into the switch circuit?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 22, 2013
While I do not recommend placing a thermostat in line with the circuit, the thermostat can be used in place of the switch. In addition to thermostatic operation, the unit can be turned on and off from the control, so it will essentially perform both functions. The recommend Napoleon control is the Napoleon Wall-Mounted Digital Thermostat. The millivolt thermostat will work flawlessly with your fireplace.

What parts would I need for venting. I will need to go out the back with a 90 going vertical . 8' ceilings and the ridge is 3' . I will come out almost to the top of ridge.

The basic list of needed components is as follows:
We have both flexible and rigid venting. For vertical applications, I highly recommend using the rigid pipe for stability. What is the roof pitch on the home? Also, does the attic space have blown in insulation or fiberglass?

I want to vent out the back wall, and my recess is about 30" from the front of the fireplace. What parts would I need to achieve this?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 2, 2012
Because you are covering such a short distance and are venting horizontally, I recommend using the Napoleon flexible vent kit to complete the installation. This kit includes the flexible vent piping for the inner and outer vent collars, as well as the wall firestop and outer termination.
