    i have a gas log insert in the basement portion of the fireplace/chimney. i wish to install a jotul blackbear on the main floor and either tap into the chimney or go thru an exterior wall. i have a feeling it's probably not a good idea using the masonry chimney via the main floor location when the fireplace/gas log insert is in the basement below within the same chimney, but i wanted some opinions to be sure.

    p.s. i do not plan on using the gas log insert anymore, but i don't want to remove it either.


    many thanks ahead of time for good advice.

    You'd prob have to reline the chimney from the Black Bear up, and seal off the damper downstairs.

    Maybe an electric log in the downstairs fireplace would be a good idea!
