    I'm looking for a double-sided gas insert. Is there such a thing?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, there are no fireplace inserts made for existing see-through wood burning fireplace openings.

    How do you measure your fireplace?
    1 Answer
    You will need to measure the front width, rear width, depth, front height and rear height of the fireplace opening to be absolutely certain any insert will fit. You will need to compare your measurements to the minimum opening requirements provided for each insert.

    I have a traditional brick fireplace, the opening is 40" wide by 24 inches tall x 20" inches deep (deepest part). What insert would work best? I am looking for a clean contemporary look. The existing fireplace has a natural gas connection in it.
    1 Answer
    I will be happy to make a few suggestions. What is the width at the rear of the fireplace opening? And would you like a vented or vent free insert?

    I already have a gas fireplace which vents thru a chimney to the outside. It uses a lot of gas. Do you sell anything that could make my gas fireplace more energy friendly? I have gas logs and glass fire screens. It is a double sided gas fireplace.
    1 Answer
    If this were not a see-through fireplace, I would suggest installing a fireplace insert for maximum efficiency. As it is see-through, my only suggestion will be to install a set of appropriately-sized see-through ventless gas logs and close the damper.

    We bought a 20 year old home with existing vent free logs. We very rarely use it, I am wondering if the newer logs have improved over the past 20 years?
    1 Answer
    It may be that the existing logs have simply not been cleaned in quite some time. If this is the case, any dust, pet dander, hair or lint, etc., that may have accumulated over the years will simply burn off into the home. However, it could be that the actual logs are composed of the lesser-cost ceramic fiber material commonly found with ventless logs. If this is the case, these logs degrade over time and will hold a smell with no good way to remedy the issue aside from replacing the logs. Unfortunately, the original logs are often no longer available as the log styles will often change, rendering the replacement logs discontinued and complete replacement as the only option. If this is the case, I would seek out the upgraded refractory ceramic material used with all of our Real Fyre branded logs and many of the higher-tier ventless log sets offered on our site. Also, any ventless log set will produce an odor when installed in a high traffic area or in a room with a ceiling fan in operation. Additionally, the smell may be the result of odorants added to the fuel supply as a safety mechanism to detect any gas leak. This only pertains to propane gas as it is heavier than air and will sink to floor level, unlike natural gas, which is lighter than air.

    Do you need a chimney for a direct vent gas fireplace insert?
    1 Answer
    A direct vent gas fireplace insert does indeed require either a masonry or wood burning factory built fireplace with a chimney in place in order to be installed. Many of the inserts we carry utilize a pair of 3" flexible aluminum liners which are to run from the insert to the top of the chimney. If no fireplace is already in place, or the chimney does not extend above the roof line, there are methods to adapt the colinear liners to a co-axial system so that the pipe may safely pass through the roof line and maintain clearances to combustibles.

    How safe are vent free fireplaces?
    1 Answer
    When installed properly and used in the correct environment, vent free fireplaces are safe to use. It is important that the correct fuel type be verified and that log placement is correct during the initial setup. Vent free appliances do best in larger rooms with low humidity levels. Installation near windows or in small spaces is not recommended.

    I have an existing 36" gas fireplace and I want to replace it with a 60" unit. Will an insert work or do I need an entire fireplace unit?
    1 Answer
    Because you desire to replace the existing system with a much larger unit, you will indeed have to remove what is there now and reframe the opening for use with the larger fireplace.

    We currently have a natural gas insert in our home. It is in a wall that is visible from both sides or both rooms. It is more of a decoration than a heat source, because it has no fan. Does the Fireplace Store have an insert that can be a useful heat source for this situation or could you point me in the right direction?
    1 Answer
    Yes, we have a few see-thru (two-sided) gas fireplace options, both as full-bodied zero-clearance fireplace systems and as stand-alone gas log sets. Please advise which configuration you need and we can proceed with some recommendations. In either case, we will need to know the available dimensions you will have.

    I teach a class for a local college. I have never installed any of the items you sell so I personally am not at all familiar with the process. I am going to be covering venting in an upcoming class and hope I can ask a question or two from folks who obviously know far more than I. I heard years ago from a friend in the field that you can not simply stick a gas-fired insert into an existing fireplace, that you must run a vent off the gas fired unit up through the chimney. And I see that you sell vent kits and chimney liners for that purpose. Could you help me out and explain the reasons for that and what the considerations are for this. Thank you so much for your time.
    1 Answer
    In regards to B vent inserts, which draw combustion air from the room, the primary reason it is a requirement to line a chimney is because of the relation between the size of the chimney and the buoyancy of the flue gases. If a chimney is over two times the size of the flue collar cross section, the flue gases will cool rapidly enough that stagnation of the gases within the flue can occur. This leads to a blockage of the gases, causing possible spillage of additional flue gas into the room. At the very least, flue gases may escape from the chimney, but they will begin to condense on the walls of the chimney before they escape, causing moisture damage to the appliance as the condensation drips onto the unit below. By using a liner sized to the flue collar on the appliance, flue gases remain hot and will escape from the chimney with more velocity, ensuring the appliance operates as it should and spillage does not occur. Direct vent inserts are sealed to the room by a pane of tempered or ceramic glass. These systems use a pair of aluminum liners, which are usually 3 inches in diameter. One liner draws combustion air from the outdoors, while the other vents exhaust gases. The exhaust liner must run the entire length of the chimney for the same reasons as the B vent inserts, save for the fact the spillage will not occur, due to the fact that the unit is sealed. However, if exhaust gases cannot escape, the burner inside the unit will be smothered and cause the flame to extinguish. Likewise, the sources of combustion air and exhaust must remain isolated from one another from beginning to end, as to prevent any issues with mingling of the gases. I exhaust gases are allowed to leak into the incoming combustion air with sufficient quantity, the flame can once again be smothered.

    I currently have a wood burning fire place and would like to replace it with a gas or other option fire place. Can you tell me what type you recommend?
    1 Answer
    A direct vent gas fireplace insert is a good option to install inside your existing fireplace. These inserts provide good supplemental heat while providing a nice, realistic flame. We have both traditional styles with a log set and more contemporary models with fire glass. Please see our full selection below: Direct Vent Fireplace Inserts This inserts are installed inside your existing firpelace and must use co-linear (side-by-side) aluminum vent liners (3"/3" or 3"/2" diameters) all the way up to the top of your existing noncombustible chimney. Please reply with your fireplace dimensions and preferred style and we can offer some specific suggestions.
