    I want to put a gas "contemporary glass" burner into a wood burning fireplace (my fireplace already has gas run to it). Should I use a vented or a vent-free burner?

    I have a Heatilator gas fireplace (ND3993) running on propane with a Robert Shaw thermostat and a Hearth & Home fan control (GFK4B). The thermostat is wired to a Robert Shaw Valve (with a knob on it which goes from Hi to Lo), and the Robert Shaw Valve is wired to the Fan Control Module (with a...

    Hello, We purchased a condo earlier in the year built in '04. There are 2 built in gas fireplaces. They are pretty standard. See pics. The one in the living room has a burning dusty smell when run. We only ran it maybe twice, and I got a headache and was concerned. So we turned off the pilots on...

    Hello! New to the forums and relatively new to homeownership + DIY home improvement. Looking forward to learning new stuff from this community. My 1940s home's wood-burning brick fireplace was replaced (I'd guess 15 yrs ago?) with a gas line and set of fake logs. The gas line runs up from the...

    There is a Monessen direct-vent gas fireplace available at my local re-store that I would like to purchase for my home (the unit is in working condition but has been used before). I have an installation question before I can decide whether to buy it.... We want to replace an old wood-burning...

    My home needs some heating help - see my previous post about my terrible hydronic heating system :-). I have a gas fireplace that vents horizontally out the side of the townhouse. Above it is a shelf for my DVD player, media PC, and then above that is where I have the TV. Problem is, if I turn...

    Please help! We are reinstalling our existing gas fireplace and need to change the vent on the back of the fireplace from an elbow and 7" straight, to only the 7" straight to direct vent out of the house. We have tried everything we can think of to remove ( by using bruit force and twisting)...

    I have a gas log fireplace with a wall switch to turn it on/off. The pilot lights fine; however, the gas logs will not turn on when the switch is turned on. Nothing was moved or changed from last winter. Next to the pilot light is what i believe to be the thermopile or thermocouple that is...

    Hello, I live in a raised ranch where the lower level is ground level on one side and slightly below grade on the other side. The subfloor is a concrete slab. We have one zone natural gas forced air heating and the idiots who built the house thought they could heat the lower level by poking...

    I'm replacing a gas fireplace that is vented with double wall B vent. The new fireplace is slightly shorter than the previous one, so where the connection is made to the fireplace the inner corrugated ducting can reach and be connected but the outer wall (the solid sheet metal) is about an inch...
  11. Pest Control
    We have a gas fireplace (the kind that turns on with a light switch) and a metal vent out the back of the house. We have had mice coming through the vent (or around the vent). We are unsure how to block access points for the mice that are also not flammable. My pest control guy said steel...

    I have a Heat N Glo direct vent gas fireplace (not sure of exact model). I consistently have a lit pilot light, however, when the switch on the wall is turned on sometimes it ignites right away, sometimes it doesn't. If it does ignite right away it will generally burn out after a few minutes or...

    Hi all, I have an old 1930s house with a small masonry fireplace (24inches wide). The chimney has been taken down below the roof, and the opening above the fireplace has been sealed by a piece of metal. I would like to put in a vent free insert but was told that the chimney needs to vent...

    Hello. I recently had a monessen DFS36 ventfree fireplace installed. The contractor accidently put all the lave rock onto the burner plate instead of the fireplace floor. After moving the lava rock to the fireplace floor, I noticed there was a lot of rock dust on the burner plate so I...

    My new construction home has 3 fireplaces. All 3 have a shutoff valve located within 6' of the fireplace, all the same type - requiring a key to be inserted to turn the valve. For one of them, the shutoff is inside of an adjacent cabinet and not in plain sight. The city inspection report (done...
