Our Answer:

You have a variety of options for a replacement gas fireplace. We recommend reading our Gas Fireplace and Stove Buying Guide for more information.

In Response to Question:

I have an old zero clearance wood burning fireplace that I want to replace with a gas heating fireplace. I do not want an insert as I will be moving the fireplace from floor level up to about 16" above the floor. The existing unit has 3 wall pipe with an 8" diameter inner chimney. What gas unit will I need and can I drop the vents down the existing chimney?
