    from Wildwood, MO asked:
    November 7, 2017
    My question is in regards to the Superior 42" WCT Builders Series WCT2042WS fireplace and in particular to the fresh air venting. I am wondering how the air coming from the outside and through the air inlet location on the left side of the fireplace gets to the fire? It looks like the air enters the inside cavity of the firebox, but from that point I am confused as to how it reaches the fire. Thank you.
    1 Answers
    There are gaps at the edges of the unit where the brick panels meet, which is where the air enters the combustion chamber.

    A circulating fireplace will have louvers (grates) on the front fireplace for the optional addition of a fireplace blower, while non-circulating will not. Circulating is recommended if you want to get more heat transfer into the room from a woodburning fireplace.

    Does this unit need an outside air kit? I plan to install it toward the middle of my home.
    1 Answers
    This unit, like many, does not always needs an OAK (outside air kit). The need for an OAK is really determined by the installation and the house of the fireplace. The quality of the insulation, doors, and windows, determines whether the unit will require make up air.

    Technically, what would this type of fireplace be called? Prefab, modular, etc.? I have an old Heatlilator that I need to replace and I need to compare it. I noticed it was given a no Energy Rating, but when we light a wood fire in ours and turn the blower on, it basically heats the whole first floor of our house, which is conservatively 1800+ sqft. The Heatilator is just loosing tiles and the upper firebox of the fireplace is getting quite thin.
    1 Answers
    Models of this type are referred to as UL127 listed Factory Built Fireplaces, but may also be referred to as zero-clearance wood burning fireplaces or open-combustion wood burning fireplaces and should only be considered for aesthetics or by customers who prefer the look and feel of an open hearth. This design will yield almost no efficiency rating as too much uncontrolled airflow is drawn into the combustion chamber and simply lost to the outdoors up the flue. In order to sustain combustion, air is pulled from rooms further away from the fireplace through gaps and cracks in construction. If you are looking for a zero-clearance fireplace that will provide efficiency, I highly recommend considering one of the EPA Certified Zero Clearance Fireplaces we offer as they are essentially high efficiency wood stoves that may be installed with combustible framing and noncombustible finishing materials. Also referred to as "built in stoves," fireplaces of this type will have gasketed doors, firebrick lined inner hearth walls, secondary air tubes at the top of the combustion chamber and controllable air flow to adjust the amount in inside/outside air drawn into the combustion chamber for a more controlled burn. While the open hearth look will be lost when using the fireplace with the doors in the fully closed position, many of these models feature an optional screen door that may be used to operate the fireplace with the doors in the open position.

    Can you clarify the requirements for the tile hearth in front of this fireplace? What is required in terms of total width and depth? And, if I am including a wood mantle across the front of the fireplace, how high above the fireplace must I mount the bottom of it (on a 4-6 inch thick square log looking mantle)? Also, is the outside air totally optional? Thank you.
    1 Answers
    The 66" x 20" hearth extension requirement is described on page 5 and illustrated on pages 4 and 6 of the installation manual. The mantel clearances are also described on page 6 and the specific height that you must install the mantel from the fireplace opening is based on the projection of the mantel. Using the chart provided, a mantel projecting 3" from the wall above the fireplace must be installed at least 15" above the top of the fireplace opening. To answer your question regarding outside air, this is technically optional, but may be required per local code. It will always be recommended as the installation of outside air will aid in any potential issues you may have with draft.

    Can this fireplace use propane gas or natural gas instead?
    1 Answers
    I apologize for the confusion, but the product in question is a wood burning fireplace that is suitable for use with either gas type. A licensed plumber or gas fitter would need to run a rigid pipe stub into the fireplace with a manual shutoff valve located outside of the hearth for installation of a gas log lighter or gas log burner.

    Can you install the blower in this before you ship?
    1 Answers
    Unfortunately, no. The blower is fragile and very likely will be damaged during shipping. As such, it is carefully packaged for transit to the delivery location and must be installed on site.

    This unit does indeed have knockouts on the left and right firebox liners to allow routing of a gas line. The gas line should be installed and capped during initial installation for a gas retrofit down the road.

    Can this unit be setup to work with a gas igniter?
    1 Answers
    You can most certainly install a gas log lighter to ignite the firewood using a match or lighter via a manual valve located outside of the fireplace opening, but the gas flow should be turned off after ignition and there will be no other forms of ignition offered.

    I have a Superior model HG 8820 fireplace, vintage 1984. It has rusted out near the flu. Would this Superior 42" WCT Builder series circulating wood burning fireplace be the direct replacement?
    1 Answers
    The Superior models manufactured today use a completely different chimney system than in past years. As such, this fireplace would not match the chimney pipe currently installed. If the fireplace has rusted out completely at where the chimney meets the fireplace, I would suggest replacing both the chimney system as well as the fireplace itself.

    This fireplace is meant to be framed in with combustible framing and the 8" inner, 12 3/8" outer diameter chimney must be used. Your masonry chimney could not be used with this fireplace.

    Does this Superior 42" WCT Builder series circulating wood burning fireplace insert include the blowers? Also, does it have a switch or do we need to have one installed?
    1 Answers
    The purchase of the fireplace does not include a blower, but the appropriate model can be seen here. The blower can be operated by the small toggle switch which is pre-installed on the face of the unit in the lower louver assembly. If you wish, this switch may be by-passed, and you may hardwire the junction box below the fireplace to a wall switch instead. Review page 7 of the owner's manual here for an additional explanation of the wiring as well as diagrams.

    There are two available blowers for this unit and they will indeed be installed behind the bottom louver. This unit does indeed have specific vent pipe it requires, 8DM venting, which you can find below the "Venting Components" tab on the unit's page.

    How many BTU's can this stove produce? Also, how many square feet can this stove heat?
    1 Answers
    BTU output from this unit will vary largely, depending on the type of wood that is burned. Softwoods will create a small, cooler fire. Hardwoods can yield a much higher BTU output, usually in the 70 to 80K range. This unit, being an open faced model, is not designed to heat a large area and will only provide supplemental heat to the immediate area it is installed.

    Because this is an open faced wood burning unit and does not have a recirculating burn chamber, it does not meet EPA guidelines. A sealed combustion chamber would be needed, such as the Superior WCT4820 Custom Series EPA Phase II Circulating Wood-Burning Fireplace.
