Gas - Installation

Can I cover the louvers on my fireplace or insert face? 
No. The louvers allow room air to move around the heat exchanger. Blocking this air flow can cause fires and will void your manufacturer's warranty and possibly your homeowner's warranty. 

What does an outside air kit do and do I need one? 
An outside air kit provides additional combustion air to the fireplace that feeds the fire with oxygen from outside your home. This will help the performance on any fireplace installed in tightly-constructed or well-insulated home. If you are installing a B-Vent gas fireplace, you should consider installation of an outside air kit. 

Can a gas fireplace be installed in a bedroom? 
Yes, however, it's best to contact us to make sure the proper size and type gas unit is installed. 

Can a gas fireplace be installed in a bathroom? 
Yes, provided the model includes a tempered glass front. It is also recommended that you do not install the fireplace where it is in danger of having water splash directly on it, nor install where there is a slippery surface where you are in danger of slipping or falling. 

What does the term zero clearance mean? 
Zero clearance has two meanings. The first is whether or not the fireplace can be placed on a floor without footings. All of our fireplaces are classified as zero clearance, meaning they do not need special footings. The second meaning of zero clearance is if you are able to finish up to the face of the fireplace, so that no metal shows after installation is complete. There are several models on our website that are capable of this clean-faced, zero clearance finish. Contact us to find out which models are suitable for this type of installation. 

Can I install a fireplace, stove or insert myself? 
Installation of our hearth products must be done in strict accordance with local or national building codes, and the unit's installation manual. We recommend that our products be installed by our service team of factory-trained professionals. 

Does a direct vent need to be on an outside wall? 
No, with today's venting options, direct vents can go literally anywhere in the home. The vent can terminate vertically through the roof or horizontally through an exterior wall. Contact us and we will be happy to assist you in determining the best venting option for your particular layout. 

Can I install a traditional or plasma TV above a gas fireplace? 
You need to check with the manufacturer of your television. We follow the recommendations of the TV manufacturer. NOTE: we take no responsibility of any damage caused by the heat of the fireplace. 

Can I install one of your indoor fireplaces outside? 
No. We make a wide variety of products that can be used in an outdoor porch, patio or open area. See our Outdoor Fireplaces online.
