Our Answer:

While it is possible to remove the log and burner system from your B-vent fireplace, there are a couple of factors to consider. The first is the size of the B-vent pipe. Some appliances have been fitted with a 3" or 4" pipe that can only handle a limited BTU output. This will need to be determined to avoid any issues with back drafting. Also, the log set that is currently installed will need to be removed, along with the gas valve and burner. You will need to ensure that removal of the burner will not leave the unit incomplete. Some systems have the burner built into the floor of the unit and cannot be removed.

I live in a condo on the 3rd floor of a 4 floor building. I have a gas fireplace with a b vent. The firebox measuresn36x20 and is surrounded by marble that cannot be removed. I hate the log insert currently in the fireplace. Is it possible to remove and replace with something contemporary like this one. In a restaurant I also saw a beautiful one with white stones.
