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.
To open the handle must pull it towards you. The handle has pivot  points allowing the door to open in steps.
All gas fireplaces have to have a shut-off valve within 10' and  that will turn so the key or the handle is parallel to leave gas on  and perpendicular to turn gas off. The valve inside the fireplace  turns but not indiscriminately. The inner valve will turn to the  pilot setting and depress to...
There are corner fireplaces and there are corners near fireplaces  that 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 angles...
A fireplace that is back drafting is reacting to a negative  pressure being created inside the home by a clothes dryer or leaky  furnace supply duct, bath vent or laundry went, water heater or  furnace, all of these devices expel indoor air which under certain  circumstances will create a...
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...
A piezo is just a manual, mechanical type of module. In order to  work as an ignition the piezo module will need to be wired to an  electrode which will spark when the piezo module is pressed or  cranked. An ignition system is an assembly of parts and the piezo  is like a spark generator for an...
it depends on the fire place. traditional fireplaces loose most of  their heat via the chimney. ventless fireplaces loose 99.9 percent  of 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 high  as 80%. Before unseasoned wood can burn, most of this excess  moisture has to vaporize and exit the...
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.
The fireplace was so hot it nearly broke yesterday.
"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, is used...
Yes. Federal laws define what can be called a vent-free appliance  and the laws mandate a strict limit on the amount of gas flowing to  the appliance as well as oxygen-depletion sensors and safety  features -- like a safety valve using a solenoid, electromagnet and  thermocouple -- that make it...
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
Just about any wood CAN be used- but some is better than others.  First avoid any wood with toxins- such as poison oak, or lumber  that 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...
to let air flow inThir 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 a  millivolt valve with a toggle-switch sticking out. We usually  remove the toggle switch and run the 2 wires that were connected to  the toggle to a remote receiver box. This way any simple remote  transmitter will act like an...
Not all fireplaces have blowers so this is going to depend on your  model. The blower is a part of the firebox and is usually inserted  in a trap-door under the floor of the fireplace. From there the  spinning louvers will send air out the bottom front or up along the  back wall to turn and emit...
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.
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...
Inside a boiler furnace the maximum temperature could go upto 700 deg c.
They can be combined 720 ways * * * * *They can be permuted in 720 ways. There is only one combination.
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.
You would really need to give more information for what you mean by practical. But I will do the best I can... Electric Fireplaces can work in just about any home that has a standard 120v outlet. They come in all different shapes and sizes, different models, such as Corner, TV and Media, Wall...
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...
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.    
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
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!
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...
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.
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 react3) new compounds are formed while others reactpoint 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...
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...
seems like it might make good tinder
Dampers are usually arranged to close DOWN, so that the weight of the damper keeps it closed. Use a flashlight- it helps to see what you are doing in that very dark place.
yes you can there are no harm
If there is a possibility this is CCA treated wood, it is not a good idea. This is the "green wood" treated lumber common for the past 40 years of so. It was used for exterior wood to resist rot and insects. CCA stands for Chrome-Copper-Arsenic- the 3 metals used to treat the wood. Smoke from this...

Club Penguin items are often limited edition and will leave and return from time to time. Quite often the in-game merchandise will relate to a specific festival and return accordingly, so the availability changes depending on how often the catalogs are updated. If you have a membership, try your...
Yes, burning of carbon with oxygen to carbon dioxide. C + O2 --> CO2
The purpose of the fireplace damper is to keep the outside  elements, outside. The damper is opened only when there is a fire  in the fireplace.
Yes. Has a high moisture content, and needs drying. Not the best in the world, but can be burned.
  It is called the hearth, and the well designed ones are flush with the floor.
Tanalised is a term used in Europe for wood that has been treated to resist rot and insects. In the US it is known as CCA, after the metals used in treating the wood- Chrome, Copper, and Arsenic. This wood has been withdrawn from consumer contact applications- like handrails, surface deck boards,...

The flue is the chimney, where the hot air rises through, thereby drawing more air into the front of the stove. ----- The flue is the duct that carries gaseous combustion products away from the fire. It includes the chimney, but also includes the stovepipe and possibly other ducts.In the case of a...

Typically smoke can blow back into the house from a wood stove or fireplace if air pressure outside is higher than air pressure inside. Vent fans running inside, chimney of wrong height, prevailing winds, etc. The real issue with flues are safety- an unlined flue can develop small leaks, permitting...
Yes, because it glows so it is luminescent.
The glass on a wood stove will get dirty because of creosote deposits - smoke. The solution is to aim for a cleaner burn, which might mean going to a cleaner burning wood, better seasoned wood, or increasing the draft and letting the stove burn hotter. You should also check the flue system and...
