Where to find VAC Input to VDC Output Relay?

I am looking for a VAC to VDC Relay. Roughly 3-32VAC Input 2-24VCD Output. I am running a Gas Fireplace off my thermostat. The thermostat is putting out about 17VAC to trigger the auxiliary heat in this case my fireplace. My gas fireplace operates off of about 6VDC. The current wall mount gas fire place switch only runs about 4.5VDC through it with essentially no amperage.

Any suggestions?

You might have better luck finding a 120VAC transformer that has your required secondary voltage.

You can then "make" your DC circuit with an isolating relay that has a 24VAC coil. I use the 90-340

I have used this method to energize 20VDC valve actuators or 10VDC actuators using conventional 24VAC thermostats (everyone hates the DC voltage thermostats in my high rise)

This allows me to use a Honeywell Prestige IAQ thermostat instead of a Barber Coleman TP8101 or a bank of 5 Johnson 350 modules.
