Heatilator Gas Fireplace, HIgh winds outside, lots of 'shrill' in

Posted by jluksic (My Page) on

Our master bedroom has a 30 inch Heatilator direct vent gas fireplace. It works well. Unfortunately, when we have high winds outside (15+ mph), the fireplace "shrills" - from I suspect, the outside winds entering through the exhaust vent. The exhaust vent does have a Heatiltor "wind-shield" and our pilot light does not go out.

There is no breeze or draft from under or around the fireplace glass or the gas valve/pilot control area that I can detect.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this annoying noise?

I don't know the answer, but I notice that sound with our Majestic B-vent fireplace as well. Rain noise seems to be really magnified near the fireplace as well. Ours is in the family room at least so it's not bothersone at night.

Add another to the list. Have had this problem for years. Still can't find a solution. If anyone finds one, I, and my wife in particular, would love to hear about it.
