Here we are testing the burn pattern of the double burners. Our burners have 2 rows of holes in each pipe to give you 4 rows of flames.

After pouring the glass make sure the automatic starter is just above the glass so it can work properly. You can hide it with glass all around the element and it helps if it is in a hole.

The fireplace below is a direct vent installation with Gray, Gray Reflective and Clear Pyrite installed

Has anyone ever said "Nice Logs"? I don't think so. We are going to show you how to transform your direct vent fireplace into a real attractive fireplace.

The key is not to change the amount of gas going into the fireplace, so don't change the regulator.

The thermo coupler (heat detector) will be raised to the surface to insure it will still work.

Drop in a new burner or use the one that was installed with your fireplace and your done.

We use a piece of stainless steel in the front to contain the glass to cover the burners and keep the glass level.

The fireplace below is a self install by Joyce and Tom Dane from beginning to end. The fireplace was painted, converted and finished with Pink Rosa. This is a direct vent fireplace and for those of you who say it can't be done, well you just don't know how! We do and thousands of of customers do as well.

You can leave the doors on or take the doors off, which ever you prefer.

The fireplace below is in Rancho Mirage just east of Palm Springs California. This is a direct vent fireplace and we used a Bronze Base Glass with Bronze Reflective Base Glass on top. We use the original burner as it would do just fine. We are also cladding the bras with brushed stainless steel and we will post the pictures as soon as we get them. We did two identical fireplaces in this home. One in the master and the other in the family room. You can tell by the back ground.

The glass that was installed was Starfire.

The house is and was under construction so please excuse the debris around the fireplace. The pictures explain what we did. We didn't change the amount of fuel (btu's) being burned just the way it looks. Flip the switch, the ignitor lights, allowing the gas to come up through the burner and the pilot light lights the gas rising from the burner below. As for the doomsayers that tell you this can't be done, Oh Well! This will be our little secret. If you have any questions on your conversion please send us pictures and we will help you convert your direct vent fireplace as well.

Most fireplace manufactures will tell you this will void your warranty. But you need to actually read the warranty to understand what they will or won't cover. The person telling you this at the factory, ask them what the warranty actually implies. We have read many of these warranties and they won't cover the fireplace anyway. These warranties were written by attorneys to keep the liability from the manufacture and lay the blame on the consumer at any expense, no really read one.

 

 

The fireplace below is a direct vent conversion. The most important issue to address here is to NEVER increase the amount of fuel that your fireplace was designed to burn.

We will explain as we move forward:

This is the burner in this particular direct vent fireplace.

This burner will work just fine.

The next "B" vent or Direct Vent fireplace is from Mark Basillus, Showing how easy it actually is. Again for all of those "Dummies" out there that keep telling you that you can't do it. Also keep telling you "the sky is falling!" I had to say that!
Oh look! Nice logs! NOT!
Mark Basillus 1
Mask it off and paint!
Mark Basillus 2
Very Red Paint! But I like it.
Mark Basillus 3
Mark added 19 lbs of Starfire base glass, 2 lbs of Clear Pyrite, and 1 lb of Clear Diamonds. We did a few special effects as well. It cost Mark $313.40 plus shipping to convert his fireplace, complete! 11/30/2010. No Really!
Mark Basillus 4
Here is what Mark had to say:
Ed,

Wanted to share with you the photos of our finished conversion to fireglass.
We are really pleased that we decided to paint the inside of the fire box
red.  That coupled with the glass had made the fireplace a focal point to
our living area!
