Can I vent a wood burning insert directly into a masonry chimney without additional stove pipe; and, is there a plate to seal it?
While some wood insert manufacturers will require a full reline via 6" or 8" UL1777-listed corrugated stainless insulated steel chimney liner, others will indeed allow one length of liner to run from the insert flue and into the existing chimney with a "block off" plate installed at the damper opening. I recommend reading the installation instructions for your insert to confirm this installation will be acceptable.
I am looking for a replacement vent for a Direct VentHeat and Glow SL36. I believe the product number for the vent is DVK01. I am being told this is discontinued. Can I still get one or is there another one I can use that is comparable? Thank you.
Unfortunately, as we are not a Heat & Glo dealer, we do not have a suitable replacement for the vent. We apologize for any inconvenience.
I am installing an Astria Inglenook CLP2 wood burning fireplace. The unit calls for an AK4 outside combustion air kit. The AK4 kit on your website is listed as a "Majestic" AK4 Kit. I want to confirm that this AK4 kit is the same kit that I need for my Astria fireplace?
While the part number is the same, there is a slight difference between these kits. The kit you will need is the FMI Complete Outside Air Kit. The kit works with FMI, Vantage Hearth, Superior, and Astria units.
We recently purchased a home with a gas fireplace. The vent goes up a built out structure on the side of the house that served as a 'chimney' enclosing all three vent pipes. (It used to also have the vent from a gas hot water cylinder and a vent from the old furnace).
Now the only vent pipe that remains is for this fireplace. I am wanting to remove this chimney build out and make the wall flat. I was wondering, can the vent for a gas burning fireplace be terminated on the other side of the wall or if it needs to go up and be vented past the roof line, as it currently is?
I can visualize and completely understand your installation. It is possible to remove the chimney chase and use a horizontal vent termination for the fireplace, if the fireplace is a direct vent type. If the unit is a B-vent type, it will require the vertical run.
