Can I replace my direct vent electric ignition natural gas fireplace log assembly with a standing pilot assembly?
1 Answer
Direct vent gas fireplace systems are not designed for an "engine swap" such as you describe. We recommend contacting the manufacturer to see if this is a possibility for your model.

I am looking for a fireplace insert for a fireplace that is 36 inches wide in the front, 20 inches deep, 26 inches wide in the back, and 24 inches high. I would like to have a clear face (not louvered) direct vent insert. The fireplace sits 4 inches high over the floor (The height of the fireplace insert would still be 24 inches). I would like to fill the 36 inch wide space as much as possible. Trims that go outside of the 36 inches to frame the insert would be even better. Which fireplace insert would you recommend?
1 Answer
The Napoleon Basic Fireplace Insert with Radiant Ironwood Log Set is going to be the closet insert that we offer to the dimensions which you have listed.

We're looking for a fireplace insert similar to the attached image. It will be for looks, can be vented or ventless, 36" to 42" and preferably linear style. What should we get?
1 Answer
Thank you for the attached images. Based on the look you are going for, you may be interested in either the Loft Vent-Free Zero-Clearance Gas Fireplace with Intermittent Pilot and Thermostatic Remote Control - 28,000 BTU or a larger model such as the Vantage Hearth Luminary Linear Vent-Free Gas Fireplace with Remote Control. Unfortunately, we do not have a unit that falls in between these two in sizing for a vented or vent free model.

I'd like to replace my current Empire gas wall heater with the FMI Cottage fireplace. It is a natural gas, 35000 BTU, direct vent with the vent in the rear. Would this work?
1 Answer
The FMI Cottage fireplace could certainly be used in place of the your current wall heater. Direct venting through the outside wall is relatively simple in most circumstances. You'll need to check and make sure that your current heater is direct vented as well. Most older Empire heaters are natural vent types that vent vertically.

What does direct vent mean?
1 Answer
Direct vent refers to a fireplace that is completely sealed from room air by using a pane of tempered or ceramic glass over its opening. The unit can usually be vented either horizontally or vertically and uses a coaxial vent pipe. The small inner pipe vents exhaust gases to the outdoors, while the larger outer pipe draws in air for combustion. These units are valued for their efficiency and the fact that they do not affect indoor air quality.
