Gas heating stoves, or freestanding gas fireplace, are an excellent option for those who want the warmth and beauty of a wood burning stove without all the hassle. Whether you want a free standing gas fireplace, vent-free, direct vent, b-vent, or natural vent gas stove, eFireplacestore.com has the best options in a gas stove fireplace for you.
A free standing gas fireplace will often take the form of a stove. By nature, gas stoves are styled to mimic the look of a wood burning stove, but instead will feature either a direct vent or vent free burner assembly. Great for zone heating, these units are highly decorative and are designed for aesthetics as much as heating.
Can I use the class A double and triple wall S.S. 6 inch pipe from my Lopi Answer woodstove for a propane stove? We are going to either get a Lopi liberty or a 40,000 btu or better propane stove. Trying to compare. Had back surgery and its getting hard to bring wood up from the woodshed. I have 2000 sq ft of space to heat.
While you may be able to use the convert the existing class A chimney for use with the coaxial vent needed for a freestanding direct vent stove, any stovepipe used would need to be removed and there are no systems available that will provide heating anywhere near the Btu range needed to heat a 2000 square foot space. Only wood and pellet stoves will heat the space you describe.
I have a Napolean vent free fireplace insert running on propane. When it starts, the valve opens and it takes 5 seconds for the propane to ignite, usually with a woosh, then it runs normally. The pilot is not close to the gas jets, which is the reason for the delay, I guess, but is there an adjustment to ignite the gas quicker? The pilot is fixed and I don't know how to adjust. (Gas pressure is OK, I checked).
There would be no adjustment to ignite the gas faster that I know of.
I have a question about vent free stoves; how are they possible? Where do all the "emissions and gases" go? Thank you
Ventless systems are designed in a way where they provide complete combustion where the only byproducts of this process will be water vapor and carbon dioxide. Please note that you will likely not be able to install a ventless system in your home state of Colorado because most all municipalities in this state have banned ventless systems and your elevation is above 4500'. Ventless systems will not function without frequent outages being experienced at any elevation above 4500', as the thin air will trigger the ODS or "Oxygen Depletion Sensor."
I presently have natural gas logs for ambiance, not heat. Now, I want more heat and visited local chimney stores, viewing stoves and inserts. The stove insert is more intrusive on the floor space: beyond the face of the fireplace. Is that required for the radiant heat without the blowers? Or, is it possible to place the entire stove into the large enough fireplace?
Installing a fireplace insert will be your best option. While you could theoretically install a freestanding gas stove inside of a very large masonry opening, the opening would have to be massive for this to work. To answer your question, some direct vent fireplace inserts would not have to project out onto the hearth in front of the fireplace opening more than an inch or so. When any insert projects out further, a very shallow fireplace opening is normally the cause and this has nothing to do with efficiency or functionality. I would also add that most all direct vent freestanding stoves will provide lesser heating efficiency on average when compared with direct vent gas inserts, if you were choosing between these two options. If you are looking for the best gas hearth system that would work with your fireplace opening measurements, we will need to know the front width, rear width, depth and height of your fireplace opening.
