Commonly Asked Questions

Who should install my SÓLAS fireplace? Can I complete the installation myself?
We recommend that your installation is done by a NFI certified gas specialist through one of our authorized dealers.

What type of maintenance is required on my SÓLAS Gas Fireplace?
SÓLAS recommends that all products should be inspected before use and annually by a qualified service person. More frequent cleaning may be required due to excessive dust or lint from carpets, bedding materials, pets, etc. It is imperative that control compartments and circulating air passageways be kept clean.

All SÓLAS gas fireplaces and inserts feature a direct vent that uses the air outside your home from a coaxial pipe. The vent can be run horizontally through an outside wall, or vertically through the roof, depending on your preference.
