What model and how old? MIG 30/40 D30/40 or FV 33/44?
Tom try looking at a Mendota FV-44i. It will out perform either of those. Looks better too
Mendota part number. HA-19-00140 Pilot tube, As I recall that valve it was a Thermopile not a thermocouple. Mendota Part number 05-07-00061 Thermopile
I reread my post and realized I screwed it up. 4 btu's per cubic foot in new construction and 6 btu's per cubic foot in old construction.
I am in out of a dozen show rooms a week. There are a lot of ways to do this.
1) Call Duravent and ask them to engineer a system for you. I...
Semi submerged containers are a huge hazard for sailboats off shore. Happens more than you think
I do not like the square footage ratings on stoves. At 75% efficient I like 4 btu's per square foot in new tight construction and 6 btu's per square...
Just noticed your (new?) profile picture. Nice ride. 09 Roadglide here
Way off topic my apologies in advance
Read it again. That is a recomendation to adopt an ANSI standard.
Flame is just OK. Which is the biggest issue. Uses float glass. The way HNG puts the units together, they sound like a kid shaking a tin can full of...
There is a big difference in btu's between the traditional and contemporary units from Mendota. 40k traditional and 28k Modern.
There are a lot of differences in the construction. Mendota uses Neo-ceram glass KOZY uses float glass. Mendota will be 20% heavier than KOZY. You...
Yawn it's OK for a low end unit. Certainly not up to contemporary standards for high performance gas fireplaces.
OK you attached a piece of Heat n Glo propaganda. Now show us all the regulations from the CPSC. Bet you can't.
Daksy, Regency, Enviro, and Travis, don't copy Mendota because it is the worst looking unit :)
Id you want an Iowa fireplace get a Mendota
In order to get cold weather performance out of a pellet grill, it either needs to be an insulated grill like the Louisiana grills or you need to get...
No offence meant to anyone. I spent some time looking at it at HPBA expo. I didn't like the double doors. Fit and finish was only so so.
Really no reason not to. You miss out on either flavoring oils or the actual wood. Traeger pellets are mostly alder with flavoring oils. Bear...
I disagree 80% with you. A good high performance gas fireplace will out do a free standing stove every day of the week. Almost all the heat is...

Nothing is built better, Mendota's flames blow everything else out of the water...

Not having a standing pilot, is smart when you are on propane. Given a 1200 btu pilot, 91600 btu's gallon = 76.33 hours per gallon. 720 hours in a...
Is it a PSE pilot hood? If memory serves me right they were. If so PSE does not sell the hood separate. You have to buy a whole pilot assembly....
Please don't state something as a fact, which is in fact a rumor.
Daksy, There has to be a specification for the screen. Usually done in openings per square inch. So a 1/2" by 1/2" screen would have 4 openings per...
Ok one more time. You can not put a screen over the glass, if you do not know what the regulation for the screen is. My screen is one square every...
Where did you get the info that some manufactures are fighting the regulation? You do realize the regulations have not been adopted by the Consumer...
Huge Bear Mountain fan here. Pacific pellets and Northern Idaho Energy Logs work great also.
I rep both gas hearth products and pellet products. In my humble opinion, pellet products are for people who do not have natural gas. Cost of...
