If you want to update your fireplace insert by changing from propane to natural gas or vice versa, you will need a conversion kit to adapt the supply lines to the new fuel. Each type of fuel operates at a specific pressure and the parts must be appropriate in order to assure a beautiful fire that looks its best. Be sure to order a kit that is suited for your brand and model of fireplace insert.
I have a Monessen DBX24NT fireplace that I need to convert to use propane. What conversion kit do I need?
The DBX24NT was a vent free system and cannot be field converted between fuels, due to regulations enforced by the manufacturer. An improper conversion could release poisonous gases into the room, so the manufacturer only lists the unit to burn the original fuel it was designed for. I apologize for the inconvenience.
I have a Monessen DBX24NT natural gas fireplace insert but I have propane gas. Can my fireplace be converted from natural gas to propane?
Unfortunately, no. This manufacturer only builds their vent free units for certification on one fuel and conversion kits are not offered, due to the potential dangers of an improperly converted unit. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Can gas logs be used without the refractory brick panels that line the insert metal box?
This will depend primarily on the firebox. Many fireboxes can operate without the brick panels, as they are decorative in most cases. However, you will need to provide the manufacturer name and the model number of the fireplace for us to verify this.
