Is there a special way to place the inserts in the fireplace?
Thank you for your inquiry. You will need to hire a certified technican to come out and inspect your fireplace and chimney to see if the fireplace is ready to install an insert. You will need to determine what size you can purchase by measuring the height, depth, width, and the back width. You will need to know what gas type you have to use as well. We have certified fireplace techs in our office so you can speak with them on the phone about your insert. Each one of our inserts has a manual as well that will give you the full installation process.
We live in Marin County, Novato, CA. We have a Lopi, wood burning fireplace insert with a thermostat and blower. We have used it to heated our entire home (1800 sq ft) for the last 27 years. We have never used the furance, Now, with the no burn days we have been forced to use the forced air gas furance. My question is, can we retrofit our Lopi wood burning insert to a gas log unit?
We do not recommend installing gas logs inside your insert. We do not sell Lopi models, but all of our inserts do not make provisions for a gas log installation. Please check with the manufacturer or a local dealer for more information.
I have a traditional fireplace with an opening of about 32 inches wide by 24 inches tall that used to be wood burning and then was converted to gas burning. It currently has glass doors but it is cold in the winter and still has drafts even with the flue closed and doors shut. What can I do with this fireplace to make it more useable and more efficient? Thanks for your help.
Depending on the size of your flue tile size, you may consider installation of a Lock-Top Damper. These are available in several different sizes.
We have a gas fireplace that was installed this year. My question is, when using this type of fireplace do we need to keep the vent open or should it be closed? The fireplace is not warming up very much..
This will depend on whether you have a vented unit or a ventless unit. Please supply us with this information and the model number if possible.
I have a historic 1827 home in Charleston, SC, and want to convert one fireplace to gas logs. There is a flue there but it probably needs some type of lining to comply with regulations. Is there something with a minimal size roof vent? This is the historic district and needs approval for anything you can see from street
Relining the chimney does not necessarily dictate the use of a termination that could be seen from the street. It is possible to use a flat top support plate that would be flush with the top of the chimney flue, thus keeping you from using a visible termination.
