How do I measure my wood burning fireplace to get the correct dimensions for the correct size of fireplace insert to order?
You should measure the front width, rear width, front height, rear height, your depth and the top of the opening and the depth at the bottom of the opening to ensure an insert will fit. The product literature for each insert will also provide the minimum opening dimensions and many installation manuals will include a chart that should be helpful in making this determination.
We bought an Empire fireplace gas logs model number DV33IN and had them installed today and there is a terrible odor from the fireplace. Will that odor go away or is this a permanent thing?
The fireplace insert you purchased will indeed have an initial burn in period that requires about 6 hours of initial use. During this time, the paint will cure and can release an acrid odor and light haze into the air. After the initial 6 hour curing period, there should be no further release of odor.
I need to convert my current Empire VFSV-24-3 propane insert to a natural gas. Can I purchase an NT burner and associated parts only and reuse my gas logs and glass doors?
Unfortunately, no, there is no conversion kit made available by Empire for your burner assembly. The entire burner must be replaced if you need to change fuel type. We apologize for this inconvenience.
I am trying to open the glass on my empire insert. I pull the two release springs at the bottom but how does the glass come out? Does it pull forward
from the top, bottom, or the side?
The removal procedure differs from model to model, but most Empire fireplaces and inserts require that you remove the upper louvers, then release the pair of spring clamps, and then remove the glass. With the upper louvers removed, you can tilt the glass out from the bottom, then lift it up and off of the upper mounting rail.
When installing a gas fireplace insert into a masonry chimney with an existing co linear venting, how do you determine what tube is the exhaust & intake?
Most co-linear venting systems will have a stamped label made into both the appliance adapter and the termination cap that will identify exhaust from intake. You can also inspect the inside of either liner. While gas appliances do burn relatively cleanly, there should be some slight discoloration inside the exhaust liner. One last way to check is to completely disconnect the liners and operate the appliance for a few moments to see which collar vents exhaust.
