    Having a fireplace means taking a little time to keep it in working order. After sitting unused during the warmer months, fireplace experts recommend performing necessary preventative measures. Look at the overall structure of your fireplace as well as the fireplaces accessories. For example, check on the condition of fireplace valves and fireplace keys; make sure they have not been lost. Consider reading our article on
    Fireplace Maintenance for additional information, or contact one of our NFI certified technicians.

    Do you have a gas valve wall plate that has a 3/4" NPT male thread? The valve in the wall has a 3/4' female thread for the wall plate. 
    1 Answer
    While we do not have any male threaded escutcheons, please make sure that the female threads you mention aren't simply a removable pipe fitting used to extend a more common female threaded escutcheon to a male threaded valve. This is common practice when the valve sits too far below a floor or behind a wall for the escutcheon to reach.

    February 6, 2018
    Can a valve be installed outside facing up? It seems that water or debris could cause some sort of an issue?
    1 Answer
    You can indeed install one upward, as the key normally pushes out any water that can build up. You will want to make sure, in an outdoor application, that you're using a stainless steel valve assembly.

    from Hammond, IN asked:
    November 27, 2013
    Should the keyed valve on a brand new gas fireplace installation be a ball or globe valve?
    1 Answer
    Either can be used and they have their own unique advantages and disadvantages. A ball valve is easy to turn on and off, as it only has a 1/4 turn effort, but it is not ideal for trying to control gas flow to a fireplace, as there is little adjustment and they tend to whistle. A globe valve is able to be adjusted for flow, as it takes 5 to 6 turns from fully open to fully closed. However, this can be tiresome if you are only using the valve as an on/off shutoff. Globe valves also tend to wear out more quickly than ball valves.

    Is there an extender available for our recessed gas valve?
    1 Answer
    This is a common issue that we run into with recessed gas valves, an unfortunately, there is not an extension sleeve that is made for this purpose. However, most gas valves use a standard 3/4 N.P.T. pattern and a male to female adapter in this size can be used to extend and connect the valve and cover.

    Can I safely remove my valve floor plate myself?
    1 Answer
    The floor plate/escutcheon is a purely decorative piece that can be unthreaded and then rethreaded without an issue. It has no direct contact with the seal in the gas valve, so a gas leak will not be an issue.
