replace vented with ventfree gas log fireplace
I have a vented gas log fireplace, it was found last summer that the control unit to operate the pilot light and the ignition was out of order. Now Lowes sells the VENT FREE fireplace with remote control and I would like to replace my vented with this vent-free unit.
Would appreciate your advice on the installation and operation procedures regarding the following:
- damper should be closed ? (or opened)
- glass door should be opened (or closed)
- the current design for the vented gas log is to light with a electrical switch that wired to the control unit. What do I need to do with the switch, if the unit is remotely controlled?
- any other advices are appreciated.
