Hi folks,
I just removed both air tubes from my Regency H2100 Hearth Heater to get to my Steel Baffle (which was upside down thanks to chimney sweeper “professionals” reinstalling after they cleaned.

I am no expert when it comes to the tubes. Each end tip looked slightly bent, and unsure if that’s intended, or something isn’t correct. I took some pics - can anybody confirm if I should order new ones? I’m already ordering new insulation above the baffle, so it’s not a huge deal since it’ll be apart for a couple weeks while I wait for the insulation.

I don’t know how old they are, or how much wood was burned with them, since I got the insert used.

Any help would be appreciated.

Pics attached.

They look ok to use again. Wish Regency continued this model. It was one of the more radiant inserts on the market if not the most radiant.
