    I purchased a used freestanding gas fireplace and Now have no idea how to vent it. I live in a tall two story house and going straight up thru 3 floors and then to the roof is not a option. I cannot go in the chimney since I heat with oil. I am very confused with the directions and am not even sure if I will be able to install this. My question is .... Can I go straight up just below the ceiling and then go outside with the pipe and do I have to go all the way up past the roof( it is quite high )..
    I was told there is some sort of wall kit that I could purchase that would allow it to vent safely and still work.. Is there such a thing and would it work on this stove? Any help would be appreciated... Also since I purchased it used, is there any way I can fire it up and make sure it works without venting it .. before I cut a hole in my wall .. It would really suck if I did all this and found out it didn't work :( Thank You , Tammy

    get the owners manual. follow the directions. if that isn't working hire a pro. should likely hire a pro for this install anyways!

    yes, you can go out the side wall, and yes it must go up above the roof,

    Thank You for your response ! I do have a owners manual , just wasn't sure if I could bring it to the outside the wall and then up vs straight up thru the floors ect . .
    We were thinking about venting it on our own if it wasn't too complicated but I was a little worried about it working the way we were going to route it .
    . But By all means ....I have no intention of hooking it up to gas or starting it before we have it inspected. I do think I will give Breckwell a call and see if they can help me in any way...

    Who is it that you can hire to do this kind of job?? I can't seem to find anyone or I am calling the wrong kind of contractors :( Everyone I call says they don't do that kind of work..

    Just figured if you don't buy it from a store, they will not service or install.
    Again , Thank you !! :)

    How about you tell us whether it's Direct Vent or B-Vent, what type of fuel you intend to burn & where you are located. All of that info will help with our answers. There may be somebody here who is your next door neighbor & can stop by & help...
