    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Mike from PA on September 26, 2016
    Can this fireplace use propane gas or natural gas instead?
    By Will M. on September 27, 2016

    Answer:
    I apologize for the confusion, but the product in question is a wood burning fireplace that is suitable for use with either gas type. A licensed plumber or gas fitter would need to run a rigid pipe stub into the fireplace with a manual shutoff valve located outside of the hearth for installation of a gas log lighter or gas log burner.

    By Santina from Penn Yan, NY on October 20, 2016
    Can different fittings for the flue, such as 22's or 45's, be purchased?
    By Tyler M. on October 21, 2016

    Answer:
    The 8DM chimney pipe required for this fireplace only offers 30-degree elbow kits. These elbows are fixed and cannot be adjusted.

    By Nick from Springfield, OR on December 14, 2016
    What is the efficiency rating of this fireplace?
    By Brennan W. on December 14, 2016

    Answer:
    This unit does not have an efficiency rating, as open faced wood burning fireplaces are meant to be decorative and do not put out much heat.

    By Louis from FL on June 25, 2016
    Can you install the blower in this before you ship?
    By eFireplaceStore on June 27, 2016

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, no. The blower is fragile and very likely will be damaged during shipping. As such, it is carefully packaged for transit to the delivery location and must be installed on site.

    By Debbie from Saint Amant, Louisiana on November 25, 2016
    We are about to install the Superior 42" circulating wood burning fireplace in a corner installation. We followed framing instructions, but contractor asked me to find out if we need to apply foam insulation to the surrounding walls and/or does it need to be covered with "green" board.

    By Frank from Forked River, NJ on May 22, 2016
    Can this unit be setup to work with a gas igniter?
    By Will M. on May 23, 2016

    Answer:
    You can most certainly install a gas log lighter to ignite the firewood using a match or lighter via a manual valve located outside of the fireplace opening, but the gas flow should be turned off after ignition and there will be no other forms of ignition offered.

    By Rich from Madera, CA on January 6, 2015
    Can I install this fireplace in my home in California? Is this fireplace EPA certified?
    By eFireplaceStore on January 7, 2015

    Answer:
    Because this is an open faced wood burning unit and does not have a recirculating burn chamber, it does not meet EPA guidelines. A sealed combustion chamber would be needed, such as the Superior WCT4820 Custom Series EPA Phase II Circulating Wood-Burning Fireplace.

    By Deb from Holland, MI on November 4, 2015
    Can we install this Superior 42" WCT BUilder Series circulating wood burning fireplace in place of our current fireplace without redoing the chimney?
    By Will M. on November 4, 2015

    Answer:
    Fireplaces of this type have to use the proprietary chimney they are designed for use with. Unfortunately, your existing chimney will likely need to be replaced as well.

    By Daniel from Georgia on November 13, 2016
    Do you have glass doors for this unit?

    By Richard Paulmann from Crestwood, KY on December 15, 2016
    What is the BTU's for the heat output and square foot estimated heating? Does it have doors or is it open?
    By Brennan W. on December 16, 2016

    Answer:
    This unit does not have a specific heat rating, as it is an open faced unit and serves as a decorative appliance. The fireplace does not come with doors, but doors are available for it under the "Popular Accessories" section of its page.

    By Deborah from Mt. Hermon, LA on September 27, 2015
    Does the blower component come with this Superior 42 inch WCT Builder Series circulating wood burning fireplace?
    By eFireplaceStore on September 28, 2015

    Answer:
    The blower is not standard with this particular unit. The recommended fan for maximum air movement is the FMI Rotary Type Fan Blower with Magnetic Attachment.
    By Patrick from White, Ga on October 9, 2015

    Answer:
    No it does not, there are two different units that can be bought. Both are a simple drop in under the cement liner that plugs into an outlet inside the unit that has to be hard wired in.

    By David from San Francisco, CA on November 10, 2015
    What is the approximate weight of this Superior 42" WCT Builder series circulating wood burning fireplace?
    By Will M. on November 10, 2015

    Answer:
    This weighs approximately 180 pounds.

    By Mike from Maiden, NC on October 30, 2016
    What is the overall height of this item? I need to know this so that I can know how much pipe to purchase. Also, is there a limited amount of pipe that can be used for this item?
    By Brennan W. on October 31, 2016

    Answer:
    The total height to the flue collar on this unit is 37 1/2 inches.

    By Mike from Las Vegas, NV on February 9, 2015
    Can this fireplace be used outdoors?
    By eFireplaceStore on February 10, 2015

    Answer:
    This unit is not recommended for outdoor installations, due to the fact that the galvanized firebox does not stand up well to moisture that is generated from an outdoor fire. A stainless steel outdoor version is the Vantage Hearth Laredo 42 Inch Outdoor Woodburning Fireplace with White Stacked Brick Liner. This unit will hold up very well in an outdoor installation and will pass code for such an application.

    By Peoples from Huntsville, AL on January 5, 2017
    Can you make a ventless fire place, vented wit a specific kit?
    By Brennan W. on January 5, 2017

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change a vent free unit over to a vented unit.

    By Wanita from FL on June 12, 2016
    Can you install a blower in this unit before shipping?
    By Will M. on June 13, 2016

    Answer:
    Just like all wood fireplaces of it's type, this fireplace may not be shipped with a blower pre-installed.

    By Joe from Valley Forge, PA on March 6, 2017
    Technically, what would this type of fireplace be called? Prefab, modular, etc.? I have an old Heatlilator that I need to replace and I need to compare it. I noticed it was given a no Energy Rating, but when we light a wood fire in ours and turn the blower on, it basically heats the whole first floor of our house, which is conservatively 1800+ sqft. The Heatilator is just loosing tiles and the upper firebox of the fireplace is getting quite thin.
    By Will M. on March 7, 2017

    Answer:
    Models of this type are referred to as UL127 listed Factory Built Fireplaces, but may also be referred to as zero-clearance wood burning fireplaces or open-combustion wood burning fireplaces and should only be considered for aesthetics or by customers who prefer the look and feel of an open hearth. This design will yield almost no efficiency rating as too much uncontrolled airflow is drawn into the combustion chamber and simply lost to the outdoors up the flue. In order to sustain combustion, air is pulled from rooms further away from the fireplace through gaps and cracks in construction. If you are looking for a zero-clearance fireplace that will provide efficiency, I highly recommend considering one of the EPA Certified Zero Clearance Fireplaces
    we offer as they are essentially high efficiency wood stoves that may be installed with combustible framing and noncombustible finishing materials. Also referred to as "built in stoves," fireplaces of this type will have gasketed doors, firebrick lined inner hearth walls, secondary air tubes at the top of the combustion chamber and controllable air flow to adjust the amount in inside/outside air drawn into the combustion chamber for a more controlled burn. While the open hearth look will be lost when using the fireplace with the doors in the fully closed position, many of these models feature an optional screen door that may be used to operate the fireplace with the doors in the open position.

    By Patrick from NY on September 13, 2015
    Can a gas or propane gas igniter be used with this Superior 42" WCT Builder series circulating wood burning fireplace (WCT2042WS)?
    By eFireplaceStore on September 14, 2015

    Answer:
    This unit utilizes gas line knockouts on both the left and right sides. As such, a natural gas or propane log lighter could be installed with the unit.

    By Jeffrey from TN on March 3, 2016
    What fan unit works with this Superior 42" WCT Builder Series circulating wood burning fireplace?
    By Chris C. on March 3, 2016

    Answer:
    For this model fireplace, I would suggest utilizing the FMI Rotary Type Fan Blower. It is a higher quality blower, and is much quieter than the FMI Triple Fan Blower which could also be installed in this fireplace.

    By David from Smyrna, GA on November 10, 2015
    I have an existing brick masonry fireplace. Would this Superior 42" WCT Builder series circulating wood burning fireplace work as an insert? Is it possible to use the existing rectangular venting system with this unit?
    By Will M. on November 10, 2015

    Answer:
    This fireplace is meant to be framed in with combustible framing and the 8" inner, 12 3/8" outer diameter chimney must be used. Your masonry chimney could not be used with this fireplace.

    By Rick from Truckee, CA on March 29, 2016
    How many BTUs does this fireplace produce?
    By Brennan W. on March 29, 2016

    Answer:
    As this is an open-faced wood burning fireplace, it does not have a BTU rating.

    I am building an outdoor fireplace, and don't need a blower. Does this adjust the total price?

    By Brittany from Haskell, TX on November 6, 2015
    Does this Superior 42" WCT Builder series circulating wood burning fireplace insert include the blowers? Also, does it have a switch or do we need to have one installed?
    By Chris C. on November 6, 2015

    Answer:
    The purchase of the fireplace does not include a blower, but the appropriate model can be seen here. The blower can be operated by the small toggle switch which is pre-installed on the face of the unit in the lower louver assembly. If you wish, this switch may be by-passed, and you may hardwire the junction box below the fireplace to a wall switch instead. Review page 7 of the owner's manual here for an additional explanation of the wiring as well as diagrams.

    I have a Superior model HG 8820 fireplace, vintage 1984. It has rusted out near the flu. Would this Superior 42" WCT Builder series circulating wood burning fireplace be the direct replacement?
    By Chris C. on December 3, 2015

    Answer:
    The Superior models manufactured today use a completely different chimney system than in past years. As such, this fireplace would not match the chimney pipe currently installed. If the fireplace has rusted out completely at where the chimney meets the fireplace, I would suggest replacing both the chimney system as well as the fireplace itself.

    I only have propane gas available to my cabin. Can I install a propane starter in this fireplace?
    By eFireplaceStore on January 5, 2015

    Answer:
    You can indeed install a propane fueled log lighter system. A popular model that we carry is the Dante Liquid Propane Log Lighter, Straight Ball Valve, 3" Key, Floor Plate Kit. The included air mixer will maintain the proper air to fuel ratio for LP fuel.

    Is a screen made for this unit?

    Can you clarify the requirements for the tile hearth in front of this fireplace? What is required in terms of total width and depth? And, if I am including a wood mantle across the front of the fireplace, how high above the fireplace must I mount the bottom of it (on a 4-6 inch thick square log looking mantle)? Also, is the outside air totally optional? Thank you.
    By Will M. on October 4, 2016

    Answer:
    The 66" x 20" hearth extension requirement is described on page 5 and illustrated on pages 4 and 6 of the installation manual. The mantel clearances are also described on page 6 and the specific height that you must install the mantel from the fireplace opening is based on the projection of the mantel. Using the chart provided, a mantel projecting 3" from the wall above the fireplace must be installed at least 15" above the top of the fireplace opening. To answer your question regarding outside air, this is technically optional, but may be required per local code. It will always be recommended as the installation of outside air will aid in any potential issues you may have with draft.

    Can this unit be installed in my outdoor fireplace?
    By Brennan W. on February 15, 2017

    Does this fireplace come with a blower fan?
    By eFireplaceStore on December 2, 2014

    Answer:
    The unit does not come with a blower as standard, but it can utilize one. The Vantage Hearth Squirrel Cage Manual Variable Speed Blower Kit is the right product to use.

    Can this Fire box be converted to use gas if needed?
    By eFireplaceStore on June 3, 2016

    Answer:
    This unit does indeed have knockouts on the left and right firebox liners to allow routing of a gas line. The gas line should be installed and capped during initial installation for a gas retrofit down the road.

    How many BTU's can this stove produce? Also, how many square feet can this stove heat?
    By Tyler M. on March 2, 2015

    Answer:
    BTU output from this unit will vary largely, depending on the type of wood that is burned. Softwoods will create a small, cooler fire. Hardwoods can yield a much higher BTU output, usually in the 70 to 80K range. This unit, being an open faced model, is not designed to heat a large area and will only provide supplemental heat to the immediate area it is installed.

    Can this Superior 42 inch WCT Builder series circulating wood burning fireplace take a propane gas insert fire starter?
    By Will M. on August 21, 2015

    Answer:
    If you are referring to the installation of a Gas Log Lighter, this can be done after a 1/2" black cast iron pipe stub is run into the cavity of the firebox by a legally qualified professional per the instructions on page 13 of the installation manual.

    By Cynthia from Midlothiam, TX on April 20, 2015
    Is there a blower for this Superior 42" WCT fireplace? If so, will it be installed behind the bottom louvers? Does this unit require your chimney pipe or can I buy generic venting pipe locally?
    By Brennan W. on April 21, 2015

    Answer:
    There are two available blowers for this unit and they will indeed be installed behind the bottom louver. This unit does indeed have specific vent pipe it requires, 8DM venting, which you can find below the "Venting Components" tab on the unit's page.
