    We ordered a superior fireplace #WCT2036WS, and in the installation instructions it says we must install a hood when using an unvented gas log set. We were sent an IHP brand #GA6050(F1764) adjustable hood. The instructions say you cannot install the hood over or above the louvers in the fireplace you must install the hood under the louvers. This is impossible because it puts the hood in the opening of the fireplace and will make using the glass doors we ordered impossible.
    1 Answer
    The reasoning for this is because operation of a gas log set requires that any optional doors be removed or left in the fully open position while the fire is burning. The mesh pull screen must remain in the fully closed position.

    Do the hoods make a difference in dispersing the heat around the room?
    1 Answer
    They do not. The purpose of a hood is to deflect heat around a mantel shelf or combustible material above the fireplace that is becoming too hot.

    I have an outdoor stacked stone fireplace with gas logs and with a 44 inch wide opening. I'm attempting to protect my TV that is mounted, above. I'm looking at your 6 inch deep hoods, but I'm not sure which one to get and what type of mount (i.e., surface vs lintel).
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, we do not carry a hood that is rated for use outdoors. This is something you will want to have fabricated from stainless steel.

    I have a 42" gas vent free Astria firebox with a 24" Peterson log set.. I've noticed that there is a great deal of heat which is starting to discolor the wooden mantel shelf which protrudes 12" from the wall. The mantel shelf is 20" from the top of the opening. I'm going to purchase a hood to mitigate the heat affecting the mantle shelf. Should I purchase a 4" or 6" hood?
    1 Answer
    Because of the relatively close proximity to the mantel, the 6 inch deflector hood will be the better choice for the maximum amount of protection. This should help to roll heat further away from the shelf and prevent the discoloration you are experiencing.

    Does the 4" Elite adjustable fireplace hood have slots for the surface mounts which allow the hood to slide over the screws or just holes which need to be screwed in?
    1 Answer
    Surface mount hoods require that you measure and mark out the mounting points on your brick that correspond to the holes in the back of the hood. You must then drill into the brick and install the anchors and screws used to hang the hood. The hood will then drop on to the screw heads.

    I need a flat black 6 inch straight rollout smoke preventer. It might be called a hood. My last one was expandable and had a torsion spring in the back to hold it in place and it also came with caulk. Do you have something like this?
    1 Answer
    The product you are looking for is the SmokeGuard 6 in. Smoke Rollout Eliminator in Black. This product attaches the same way and includes the adhesive needed.

    How do you affix your hoods onto a fireplace?
    1 Answer
    We carry several fireplace hoods, and most are model-specific and simply fit into the place where designed on the face of the firebox above the opening. Our universal hoods (such as the Elite series) are available with surface mount (anchored horizontally into the fireplace face above the opening), lintel mount (anchored vertically into the lintel just inside the fireplace opening) or in a glass enclosure style, where a glass door assembly is in place (the hood is attached to the back of the glass enclosure).

    Will these fireplace hoods mount onto the face of the fireplace door frame?
    1 Answer
    The fireplace hoods listed as "glass enclosure" models are intended for this exact purpose. The are designed to slip over and behind surface mounted glass door enclosures.

    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.
