Is there such a thing as a combined gas and regular fireplace? I have the feeling it has to be one or the other which, when I think about it, combining them would probably be very dangerous.
Which gas fire place unit would you recommend that looks the most like a real fire?
By Kevin on January 28, 2014
Answer:You are correct. While there are gas log lighters available for wood appliances, there is no true "dual fuel" appliance. Our Napoleon and Majestic lines both feature very realistic units. What size fireplace are in searching for? Do you prefer a direct vent fireplace or a vent free model?

I have a Martin model BW3645 fireplace. Is this a gas and wood burning fireplace?
By Kevin on January 14, 2013
Answer:This old Martin fireplace was produced as a solid fuel, wood burning appliance. However, I do see that it features a knock-out for addition of a gas line. As such, you could theoretically add a gas log set to this fireplace with no problem.

My brick fireplace has a 3/4 inch hole in the center about 3 inches above the top of the fireplace burning area. What is this for? I thought it may be for some kind of emblem or something but now I don't think so.

Answer:Usually, the only reason a hole of this size exists in the fireplace is to allow outside combustion air to enter the unit to aid efficiency. However, this inlet is usually located near the bottom of the firebox, rather than the top. Can you tell if the hole leads anywhere or is it just a slight indention? Please advise at your convenience.
