See Though Fireplace – Double Sided Fireplace Leave a comment

In reply to Lyn.

Lyn, I honestly don’t believe that I have ever seen a blower for a double sided

gas log” fireplace

Gas logs and blowers don’t seem to mix well. I feel you’re in a dilemma that only you will be able to resolve1100x656-main-product-image-bhd4-napoleon-fireplaces.

But I have seen these as a “direct vent” fireplace insert” systems
You must ask yourself, do I want the unusual glamor of seeing a double sided fireplace or have the benefit of the heat source and the beauty of my one sided fireplace.napoleon-bhd4-ascent-multi-view-direct-vent-see-thru-gas-fireplace-66 Historically, I have found that masonry see-through fireplaces, with or without gas logs or a blower, are thought of only being a decorative appliance. The real problem is they just don’t heat a room.

This is primarily because they don’t incorporate a “back wall ” that was designed, and to function to direct and to curl the smoke up the chimney, while at the same time reflect the heat from the fire back into your living space.

It is my own personal feeling that a see-through fireplace design, should incorporate LP or a natural gas supply to work properly and consistently, but the only heat that you will have is from the “open” glass doors
Lyn, my wife and I once had this same issue with our masonry see-through fireplace, and we chose to install a “one-sided” direct-vent gas fireplace insert. And I will say that we enjoy the beauty of the dancing yellow flame, while at the same time of have the ability to adjust the flame height and to control the blower fan speed, all from our remote control.
