I am installing this fireplace with the optional outside air kit.
The instructions with the kit and the instructions with the fireplace about the kit are minimal.
depending on how many times you check your phone and take potty breaks. If the spray version terrifies you, you can buy a quart of it on my affiliate link HERE and just brush it on. Any “gaps” in the paper will get spray paint in it, so take your time on this step.
Of course, use wisdom in deciding if to paint near your fireplace and whether or not to turn off your pilot light for this project. And if the site of my spraying something INSIDE of a house is giving you hives right now, then just get the paint in the quart form HERE and brush it on.
Maybe you have an existing fireplace that could use an upgrade, or maybe you have a whole new location in mind.
Whatever your needs, you can be sure that the Superior - Builder 36 Inch Circulating Wood Burning Fireplace will provide the benefits of a traditional, built-in fireplace with a fraction of the headache. If you don't have the time, money, or ability to build a fireplace yourself or have someone do it for you, look for the only option that can satisfy the same needs.
At the inlet to the outside air port, there is a flappy little door that has a hinge that is riveted onto it. Or, am I supposed to drill out the rivets and remove the door?
Please Note: This model is a direct replacement to the previously available FMI Bungalow B36L.
It is a 15 minute project to paint the fireplace brass trim ….. Both Lowe’s and Home Depot carry the High Heat Rustoleum paint. Then, tape newspaper all around being sure to have it on the hearth area especially as spray paint “falls”.
If you still have this brass on the front of your fireplace, well our friendship is in serious trouble. You’ll need to ask someone smarter than I for this project. Diamond Vogel 1.5 inch is my favorite painter’s tape. 3rd, tape off or remove any handles you don’t want sprayed. Two thin coats of the spray paint will more than cover the fireplace brass.
If you're interested in a unit that will provide a good deal of heat and efficiency, I would suggest taking a look at our EPA Certified Zero Clearance Fireplaces.
Concerning this unit, the overall measurements of the unit are for framing dimensions; is the surrounding face trim shown in the picture an added width and height or included in measurements published in this add?
