Anyone else with an old heatilator unit?
I have an old 1982 heatilator wood burning FP (model FP 36) in the house we moved into a few years ago. There were no instructions left with the unit, so we never used it. It is also very late 70's/early 80's style with a mesh curtain. My initial goal is to replace the mesh screen with glass doors. I called heatilator up and they said they will send me instructions but the unit is obsolete and they do not make any doors for them anymore. I need the doors as I have a baby in the house and in the winter there is some cold air that leaks from it.
Has anyone used doors from other companies(Portland was mentioned by a local dealer)? How have other people updated the look of their heatilator without replacing the entire fireplace?
can you tile over parts that are not vents?
