Fireplaces

A place in a home connected to a chimney where logs of wood are burnt in order to heat a room
Yes, gets a nice blaze, as long as it is properly seasoned.
Martin Industries, Inc. manufactures home heating products. Itsproducts include a line of vented and vent-free gas heaters andfurnaces that are offered under the Martin Gas Products and AtlantaStove brand names and a variety of models of gas logs, gas stoves,pre-engineered wood, and gas fireplaces...
To open the handle must pull it towards you. The handle has pivotpoints allowing the door to open in steps.
All gas fireplaces have to have a shut-off valve within 10' andthat will turn so the key or the handle is parallel to leave gas onand perpendicular to turn gas off. The valve inside the fireplaceturns but not indiscriminately. The inner valve will turn to thepilot setting and depress to light the...
There are corner fireplaces and there are corners near fireplacesthat are called nooks.
A corner electric fireplace is a fireplace that goes in a corner. Electric Fireplaces come in multiple shapes and sizes. You have standard floor models, corner models, wall mounted, TV and Media Mantles, and the kind that go directly into the wall. Corner Electric Fireplaces are made to have...
A fireplace that is back drafting is reacting to a negativepressure being created inside the home by a clothes dryer or leakyfurnace supply duct, bath vent or laundry went, water heater orfurnace, all of these devices expel indoor air which under certaincircumstances will create a negative pressure...
I'm an old (75) country boy who lived by a fireplace all my life, until I was in my 20's as the only source of heat besides the wood stove in eth kitchen, and I've never heard the corner by the fireplace to have a special name except "the corner by the fireplace." As in, "Stand it in the corner by...
The pressure may be too high or the orifices obstructed by ash.
Heatilator is actually a fireplace manufacturer. Many people refer to fireplace blowers or fans as Heatilators.
depends if it is fresh
From the supply lines to install off your main gas line. If this is not done by a qualified person, you must have it inspected by your local codes.
It happens because it's very smokey in the stove so you probably have the flue shut down. Simply open the flue some so you have a better flame rather then a smolder so it burns cleaner. Also have your chimney serviced at least once a year, try to burn seasoned wood (dry). Remember if you split green...
Yes, along with water vapor.
A piezo is just a manual, mechanical type of module. In order towork as an ignition the piezo module will need to be wired to anelectrode which will spark when the piezo module is pressed orcranked. An ignition system is an assembly of parts and the piezois like a spark generator for an ignition...
it depends on the fire place. traditional fireplaces loose most oftheir heat via the chimney. ventless fireplaces loose 99.9 percentof their heat out of the front of the fireplace and into the home
Burning unseasoned wood (wood that has not been dried to 20-25%moisture content) is both inefficient and unsafe. Green wood(freshly cut, unseasoned wood) can have a moisture content as highas 80%. Before unseasoned wood can burn, most of this excessmoisture has to vaporize and exit the wood. As...
a hearth and a fireplace screen
Most wooden matches are poplar. It burns VERY quickly. While it may be useful to start a fire, or build a hot, quick fire, poplar has a low heat value (heat per lb of wood) and will burn out quickly.
I would think both. Cold air from the room goes in the bottom and warmer air comes out the top.
Sandstone fireplaces can certainly be updated with a lick of paint. Before painting, the fire surround should be thoroughly cleaned and allowed to dry. A primer should then be applied. Once the primer has dried, apply your chosen paint and allow to dry.

"I sat by the fire, blankly staring into it while reflecting back on my life." We included a fireplace when we built our home, not because it gets really cold in winter here but because in cool weather an open fire is so comforting. In many homes the shelf above the fireplace, the mantlepiece,...
Assuming you have access to the hinge mechanism. This item will probably be made of cast iron, and the hinge mechanism has rusted solidly. Care must be exercised to avoid breaking the cast iron as it is a brittle material, and some of its substance will have been consumed into making rust. Thus...
Yes. Federal laws define what can be called a vent-free applianceand the laws mandate a strict limit on the amount of gas flowing tothe appliance as well as oxygen-depletion sensors and safetyfeatures -- like a safety valve using a solenoid, electromagnet andthermocouple -- that make it impossible...
What a silly story! Van Gogh never visited a royal palace.
You should not place a TV on an electric fireplace, unless it is a TV and Media mantle. Most of the standard models are not secured enough to hold the unit. TV and Media Electric Fireplaces and constructed to hold the weight of all of your media.
I did this exact thing in 2000. had a 4 ft crawl space under a 25 x 20. $18,000. No plumbing. I contracted every thing out except painting , insulation and heating duct work. what a great family room. m_stevens@roadrunner.com
Yes electric fireplace is a great idea for several reasons. I actually got feed up and asked myself the same question, answered it went out and purchased an electric fireplace. Here are the reasons I found it to be a great idea: 1) No need to go out and buy those fire logs or gel fuel 2) No...
Just about any wood CAN be used- but some is better than others.First avoid any wood with toxins- such as poison oak, or lumberthat had been treated with chemicals, such as the Chrome-copper-arsenic (CCA) treatment on "salt treated" outdoor lumber. Next, look for dry wood. Wood that has been cut,...
to let air flow in Thir are 2 on top and 2 on the bottom, what is the dfference
no because its expensive it does however burn well and has a higher calorific value than most conifers
This depends on the switch. A lot of older fireplaces have amillivolt valve with a toggle-switch sticking out. We usuallyremove the toggle switch and run the 2 wires that were connected tothe toggle to a remote receiver box. This way any simple remotetransmitter will act like an electrical toggle...
Not all fireplaces have blowers so this is going to depend on yourmodel. The blower is a part of the firebox and is usually insertedin a trap-door under the floor of the fireplace. From there thespinning louvers will send air out the bottom front or up along theback wall to turn and emit from above...
the fireplaces you can find in the build menu, and if you press ctrl- shift- c then type in moveobjects on you can apparently snach the chimineys and delete them.
Not a good idea. Some varieties of sumac contain the same toxic chemical as poison oak.
The hotter the flame, the less color (and light) given off. Bright, yellow flames are the result of carbon that has not been burned, where blue flames indicate a near total burning of the fuel. Other chemicals present in the wood can color flames- sometimes added for the appearance- red, yellow,...
Something is preventing your fireplace from drawing. The damper may be closed, or partially closed. Your chimney may have a blockage, or you may have prevailing winds that push smoke back down the chimney. If you have air flow problems, such as a vent fan that draws air out of the house, it can...
Splitting firewood can be done mechanically or by hand. A hydraulicwood splitter can make splitting large amounts of firewood easy.These units can be expensive, around $1,000 for one powered by agas engine. Splitting firewood by hand using a splitting axe ormaul is the more traditional way. The...
By Federal guidelines a Hearth has to be at least the height of the Firebox if not above the Firebox. If a firebox is elevated a hearth should be of equal height or higher. There may be a loop hole if the Firebox is more than 12 inches off the ground, you may not be required to have a Hearth at this...
A gas fireplace. It is designed to burn at about 99% efficency, and does not produce smoke or carbon monoxide, and is not vented to the outdoors.
Inside a boiler furnace the maximum temperature could go upto 700 deg c.
This handle would be for emptying ashes that fall below the grate i would think.
They can be combined 720 ways * * * * * They can be permuted in 720 ways. There is only one combination.
The inside of the chimney. The flue carries smoke and combustion gasses out of your house. The clay tile traditionally used to line a chimney is known as a "flue liner".
From my research they are discontinued. That is not to say you could not find a comparable one.
Pretty much an average wood. Not the best, not the worst. Will tend to burn quickly when compared to harwoods like oak, ash, or hickory. If you have it, you can use it, but there are better woods. However, in some areas, the good stuff is hard to find.
Hardwoods make the best fertilizer- oak, ash, hickory, etc- but any wood ash can be used. Avoid any ash from treated lumber- much of the "green" lumber is treated with some very toxic metals you do NOT want in your tomatoes. We mix wood ash from our wood burning furnace in our compost pile (be...
Hardwoods are the best wood for fireplaces as they burn much longer than pine does. Ash, Oak, Maple, Birch, Beech, and Walnut are all good wood to burn producing med-high heat and little smoke and sparks. Cherry while it does not burn as well as some of the other hardwoods -it does produce a...
Unfortunately, the company has discontinued this model. I've searched both high and low for parts to replace various breakdowns, but the manufacturer doesn't even support their own product. After being on hold for a long time, at no point during the call did they even say what the name of the...
Not an expert, but a homeowner. MOST gas fireplaces (and other appliances) have a flame sensor- frequently in the form of a thermocouple. Intended to prevent gas from flowing when there is no flame present. If the thermocouple is bad, it will shut off the gas flow even when a flame IS present. It...
The hearth (pronounced harth). This is also refered to as a firebox floor.. If there is a grate on the floor of the firepalce it is called an ash grate which leads to an ash pit..
Wood burning cookstoves are still made. They are rather expensive, but still available. One source (one of many possible sources) is Lehman's. This is a company in Kidron OH that sells various non-electric products. You can find them in an internet search. Used wood cookstoves may sometimes be found...
Benjamin Franklin invented the Pennsylvania Fireplace also known as the Franklin Stove.
Burning produces smoke (carbon) and gasses, such as Carbon Dioxide and Carbon Monoxide, along with water vapor. Ash is left after the wood is burned. We use our wood ash as fertilizer in our garden, for our grapevines, etc.
A trade qualified Gas Fitter and Turner will be able to give you more information
Yes. While the different varieties of gum are a chore to split, it can be used for firewood. Heat values are not as great as oak or hickory, but better than many woods.
NO!!! Tanilised wood is another term for lumber that has been chemically treated to resist rot and insects. The chemical used are CCA- copper, chrome, and arsenic. Chrome and Arsenic are especially toxic, and this wood is no longer sold in the US for "Consumer contact" lumber, such as decks,...
Birch is great firewood. It may not have the energy content of Oak, beech or maple but it burns without any popping and can be used frozen and even newly cut and frozen!
Avocado wood (and any natural wood) will burn. Heat value is similar to elm. More heat value than pine, less than oak.
If you have time, then grab a towel. Otherwise, run out of there as fast as you can. Be careful not to slip and fall.
Someone has given me the exact stove and mine does not have a tray for the ashes there is a solid bottom though. I am trying to find out if there is a special way to hook up the pipe, there seems to be no hole to attach the pipe to the top of the stove or does it just sit on there. let me know if...
The answer to this would fill a small book! The fireplace has certain design measurements that are related to each other- size of opening at front, angles of sides, angle of slope at top, size of back, size of flue, depth of fireplace, height of chimney above surrounding surfaces, etc. A fireplace...
Contact your gas supplier. There are parts that will need to be replaced, and possible air shutters that will require adjustment. One part is the orifice, or jet- you need a different size.
A free standing fireplace is a form of wood stove that is open on the front. An insert is a wood stove (with doors) that is inserted into the opening of a regular brick fireplace- it slides into place.
When burning the firplace, flue must be open to avoid death/ illness from carbon monoxide.
Assuming this is a first aid question, avoid putting anything on a burn from heat. DO NOT put butter or grease on the burn. It can be covered with a clean, dry dressing to protect it. There are spray products made with aloe vera and lidocaine that can be used for pain- but a LARGE burn should be...
1) heat is evolved 2) it is quite difficult to react 3) new compounds are formed while others react point 3 is the most important as a chemical change is one in which new compounds are formed.
Start small, and build once lit. As a scout, I learned to build a small pyramid of tinder, then surround that with a pyramid of larger pieces of wood, and then lean thicker pieces up against that. Then light it up. These days I actually start with a newspaper. Tearing one-inch wide strips, I get...
My father attended a school like the one you mention. The teacher would build the fire before the students arrive. The community would supply firewood for the school- sort of a direct tax. Older students would gather kindling wood- especially what was known as "lightwood"- a resin loaded bit of a...
Rotate them using your nunchuck until they are facing the wall, then move them down and attach them to the edge of the ledge you're standing on. Just walk down them! Hope this helps, I only just got past them! Lol!
While I do much of my own work around the house, some things I leave to professionals- especially things that can burn my house down. If you check through the local listing for "Chimney Sweep" and "Chimney repair"- under contractors- you should find a company that can inspect your chimney for damage...
You survived the incident. Flues are not air tight, so some of the carbon monoxide went up the chimney. There was probably enough air movement to keep the concentration down, at least for the length of time it was happening. You probably had the furnace on also and that helped. Do it all night, and...
I would have a gas applaince service rep examine the fireplace, and insure that no parts were damaged due to high heat- and leave a note for self to remember to open damper next time.
Brick is my favorite, but the firebox will be made of firebrick, and not ordinary building brick. Some people prefer the appearance of cut stone or field stone, but the firebox will still be firebrick (refractory brick)
Yes, because when it is burned the fire makes all the water in the wood evaporate, and water weighs a significant amount, so the wood is much lighter. Yes. It becomes lighter because it is being consumed, and converted to other substances. Most of the original material disappears due to...
Poplar is the wood the wooden matches are made from. It burns VERY quickly, has a fairly low heat value, and produces few coals for lasting heat. It is not BAD to burn- just not really good. We burn it to dispose of it, or to use for kindling- I would not BUY poplar to burn.
