Gas fireplace


I'm not sure if this is the right forum to be discussing this, but I've been thinking about installing a gas fireplace in my home. I live in a bungalow and have a chimney stack that runs from the basement all the way up through the middle of my home, but the fireplace was removed before I bought the house. I was thinking for up in the bedroom in the second level, putting a gas fireplace in the chimney stack. Is this possible?

This question can not possibly be answered with out seeing the stack, and the house.......there are literally hundreds of hvac shops in your area.......let your fingers do the walking.......

You may need to put a steal liner in that flu if you want to run gas but harleyrider is right with out looking at what you have and knowing type of gas/ vented/nonvented/size/ect. we could not help you and know that you will be safe. Get a HVAC co. out there to look at what you are wanting to do,it is not worth you are your families life.
