What are these baskets and conversion kits for?

These burners are designed to be installed into a fireplace to simulate the effect of a coal-burning basket grate. Some are designed to fit inside existing coal baskets (usually with some minor modification) to convert them to gas or liquid propane.

What does "vented," "vent-free," or "ventless" mean?

Vented means that you need a working chimney or venting system in the fireplace for the gas fumes to exit.

Ventless and vent-free both refer to fireplace burners that don't need any special venting in order to operate. If your fireplace doesn't have a working chimney, consider one of these coal baskets instead.

PLEASE NOTE: Ventless/vent-free coal and log sets can only be installed in large rooms with proper air-flow and are illegal in some areas. Check your local codes to see if one will work for your room.

How good are these sets at heating?

Well, it depends from set to set, but their primary function is to look like a real coal set. They're generally not designed to be a home's primary heating source, although they will fill a room with ambient heat fairly quickly. The bottom line: They're really good, but not for whole-home heating.

Are the coals real?

No. The coals on these sets are either made from refractory cement or fiber ceramic materials. They are non-burning and designed to withstand the heat of a gas flame.

Can I replace the fake coals with real coal?

NO! This will damage the burner, the electronics, the valve, and possibly cause an explosion.

Can I use glass beads or lava rock in these burners?

No. The burners are designed specifically for the coals that come with them. Other fire media such as lava rock and fire glass may not give the burner enough air to maintain a safe flame. Lava rock may even crumble and clog the burner, causing a dangerous buildup of gas.

If I modify my coal burning basket for gas, can I go back to coal later?

Not usually, but it depends: Sometimes you just have to remove the conversion kit, but if you've physically altered the basket in some way (such as cutting a hole for the gas line) you can't.

Bad experience
I went by the description they had but apparently it was not the actual size of the product but the size of the fireplace. No where on the website do they have the diameters of the actual product. After getting the product I noticed it was the wrong size and tried returning it. They want 20% restocking and I pay for shipping due to the terms but in the terms and condition it also States you'll get a courtesy email to make sure you purchase the right product before it ship. Well after I said that they stop emailing me. CJs Hearth & Home Team The description on the web site said that it was a screen for a direct vent fireplace. After seeing a picture of your fireplace it was clear that you have a vent free fireplace not a direct vent. A direct vent fireplace has a sealed piece of glass on the front of the fireplace. This screen is made only for the Monessen models listed in the ...
