I am building a new home and someone has given me a firebox that was for burning wood. I would like to install it for a gas log, is that feasible? It did have a gas starter for for the wood. Would I need a glass door to use a gas log?

Our Answer:

Yes, if the fireplace has been tested and listed for gas logs. A glass door is not required to have a vented gas log set. If the fireplace has functional chimney pipe installed that runs over the roof, you can get a vented gas log set. If you do not have a working chimney, you may be able to use a ventless log set. If you prefer, please reply with your full fireplace dimensions (front width, rear width, opening height, depth, etc.), as well has how you want to control the unit (on/off remote, variable flame remote, wall switch or manual), and we will be happy to offer some recommendations.
