    What can I use to direct heat outward for maximum room warmth?
    1 Answer
    Depending on your application, you may or may not be able to utilize a blower.  This would push heated air from the fire into the room.  However, not all models or applications allow such a feature.

    I have a large masonry wood-burning fireplace with a solid oak mantle/ surround (about 9-10 inches of brick between the fireplace opening and nearest wood surface) We have glass fireplace doors. What type of heat deflector/ hood should I use? Lintel mount, surface mount, or something different?
    1 Answer
    We would recommend a surface mount hood, which would be installed onto the brick above the fireplace opening.

    Do you have a hood deflector for a linear fireplace?
    1 Answer

    Most linear fireplaces will come standard with a canopy hood if needed. We do have some adjustable surface mount hoods, but compatibility with your unit would be determined by the width of your fireplace opening,

    What is the difference between a lintel mount hood and a surface mount hood? Also, if it says that it is 6 inches, does that mean it sticks out from the fireplace by 6 inches?
    1 Answer
    A lintel mount hood is designed to insert into the fireplace opening and attach to the lintel, using fasteners. A surface mount hood is designed to affix to the fireplace facing, just above the opening. The 4" or 6" measurement denotes the projection of the hood from the face of the fireplace forward away from the fireplace opening.

    Is there a reason not to install a hood on a vented gas fireplace? I know it will reduce the heat going up toward the mantel, will it also keep the brick at the top of the fireplace from the soot?
    1 Answer
    A hood can certainly be installed on a vented gas fireplace. Normally, heat output to the mantel is not that extreme, but occasional downdrafting can cause soot accumulation over time. The hood would help to cut down on that issue.

    How do I properly measure for the fireplace hood?
    1 Answer
    If your glass fireplace cover is an operable door assembly, you will need to measure from the outside to the outside of the assembly. If the cover is a fixed pane of glass, you will want to measure to the metal on either side of the glass panel.

    How does a lintel mount hood attach?
    1 Answer
    A lintel mount hood would be installed on an existing lintel on a fireplace. If you have a lintel, it will be located beneath the bricks at the top of the firebox. A lintel mount hood will attach to the lintel with screws.
