The main issue is the height of the front opening. The minimum front opening required for Monessen ventless gas logs is 17" high and 25" wide. If the opening isn't large enough to offer air flow, the oxygen sensor will shut the gas logs down. Judging by the inside dimensions, removing the insert will allow you enough space to install ventless gas logs without a concern with air flow. Removing the insert will also enable you to install a 24" log set which will provide more heat than the smaller 18" set.
