Can a vent free natural gas heater be installed in a mobile home?
Generally speaking, ventless gas hearth systems are not prohibited in mobile homes outside of local code requirements, however, some ventless gas fireplaces may not be installed in a mobile home. In short, you would need to confirm that the model you are considering is approved for installation in a mobile home. This is normally stated in the first few pages of the product literature for any gas hearth system you would be considering. Before shopping for a ventless system, you would also want to check with your local code office to confirm that there are no restrictions on ventless gas hearth systems.
I live in a manufactured home on permanent ground. I am wondering what is the maximum weight for a grate in my fireplace. I would like to buy an antique cast iron grate or basket but am concerned about the weight. Can you help me? Thank you.
Only mobile home-approved fireplaces may be installed in mobile homes. Because only the listed replacement grate may be used with any prefabricated wood fireplace, no other grate should be used and there is no maximum weight information information to be provided.
Is it safe to install a gas fireplace (new) in a mobile home where the occupant uses oxygen? Would it make any difference if it is a direct vent or ventless?
While I would not install a vent free fireplace in this particular scenario, installation of a direct vent fireplace would not be an issue. Unlike a vent free model, direct vent fireplaces have no impact on indoor air quality and the combustion chamber is completely sealed.
