I have an existing open wood-burning fireplace. Does anything have to be done to the chimney to switch over to a direct vent gas fireplace? I am looking at purchasing a GDI-30G and I'm also concerned about the space needed around the gas insert.

Our Answer:

If your woodburning fireplace is a brick/masonry unit, then you can indeed install a direct vent insert like the Napoleon GDI-30G. Any direct vent insert will require co-linear liners (usually 3" in diameter) to be run up your existing chimney.
