Way to upgrade existing Heat N Glo fireplace?

Posted by docno (My Page) on

I have a Heat N Glo model model SL-750TR-D. It came with my house. It's obviously the cheapest fireplace they could find - and it looks like it :(

Does anyone know if there is a way to upgrade the fireplace log set and maybe burner without having to swap out the entire unit?

Then again, there seem to be many better brands of fireplaces out there so maybe it would be worth the hassle/expense of completely changing it out. It's just that it's six years old and seems a complete waste to just toss entirely. I wish I would have had an opportunity to pick something better - or at least known at the time that there were much better options out their...

RE: Way to upgrade existing Heat N Glo fireplace?

Hi, I have the same question as you. Did you upgrade or buy another brand? If so did you keep the logs? We were stupid enough to choose the sl750tr when building. We had a wood fireplace and I did not realize how expensive a gas fireplace was, we were over budget on the build and went with this model. Sorry ever since. It does work, but the flame is so low you cannot see it, in addition the screen is so dark you cannot see the logs! It is like a black box on or off. Had someone look at it, but the flame is as high as it can go. In addition I want a brick looking box behind the logs, if we can ever see inside.
