Hi, We presently have a corner ng fireplace insert. I would like to take it out and move it to a wall nearby. I just don't like it in the corner. Is it possible to use the unit we presently have and move it? Thanks very much
JA: Just to clarify, what type of fireplace is this?
Customer: It is a natural gas fireplace which was installed when our new house was being built.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: It is only 9 years old. I am hoping my handy husband and I could do it with the help of our gas fitter son.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The fireplace will be moved 6 feet from where it is on an outside wall, Thanks

Y​ou should be able to relocate the insert provided you do a few recommended things; Follow the manufacturers installation instructions and venting procedures, relocate the gas line, provide required electrical wiring, make sure all the framing meets the building code standards, and it is also advisable to get a building permit, which will ensure that the insert was installed properly and complies with all the current code requirements.
