This fireplace is also zero clearance certified and comes with a 3 year warranty.
This calls for a 6 inch inner diameter flue pipe. I currently have an existing gas fireplace that may have been converted from a wood fireplace. My question is whether I can use the existing flue pipe to connect the new one. I am not yet sure of the existing diameter, but I believe it is 6 inches or larger. Thank you.
B-vent fireplaces should only be installed with Type B venting of the proper diameter, which will have an aluminized inner flue and galvanized outer shell. The existing wood burning chimney flue could potentially be re-lined with Type B flexible aluminum chimney liner, but only if the existing chimney is masonry. If this is a factory built chimney used with a prefabricated wood burning fireplace, there would be no way to reuse or re-line the chimney once the fireplace is removed.
This fireplace can generate up to 25,000 BTUs, which will heat approximately 700 square feet. However, B-Vent units are very inefficient and most of that heat will be lost up the flue. We recommend using a direct vent unit, if possible, if you are needing a fireplace to be a secondary heating source.
