Im thinking of installing vent free gas firelogs into a existing fireplace in the living room.They produce 79000btu..and I have a gas line to connect to that is 2 feet away...We havent used the fireplace at all and the flue is boxed in with plywood..Im wondering should I just remove the plywood[will the heat go up the chimney instead of in the room] or box it in with sheetmetal perhaps or go with a vented model and use the flue? Any suggestions are helpful.HKestenholz, please do not respond to any of my posts..Ty

40 years too late H...As long as you do not purchase a system that uses a higher btu than you need for that space, air pollutants will not be a problem..Ex if a 15 x 15 room[30000 sq ft.]required a 30000 btu burner and you installed a 60000 btu burner then,and only then, will you have co2 or other pollutants present.

HKestenholz.. I Thought I asked you politely not to reply to my questions.Your opinions do not matter to me.If you respect any of us at all then please do not respond to my questions ..Thank you
I never gave you the size of this area so dont assume it is small.and the 79000btu unit was referred by a heating company that has been in business for 50 years.[I currently use 5000 btu
]The only question I asked was if I should put a metal hood in the fireplacew or not..and if anyone has used these?

HKestenholz...I did not post any bad ideas. I asked a question about replacing plywood with sheetmetal.Please read posts carefully before you put people down and degrade them.Ty
