The Loft Direct Vent Small Gas Fireplace Insert features a sophisticated, modern design and powerful, efficient operation that make it an incredibly popular choice for homeowners. This unit boasts a fantastic look and 20,000 BTU's to help you heat your home effectively.
The fireplace itself features an efficient and dynamic burner, convenient co-linear venting, and a large heat-resistant ceramic glass window that give you a great view of the flames. Those flames look even better thanks to the included black porcelain liner, and the heat the flames generate is distributed for maximum comfort by the built-in variable speed blower.
On top of all of these benefits, owners can choose from two different metal surrounds, plus the unit carries a 3-year limited warranty. There's also a fuel-saving intermittent pilot for simple operation. You get lots of fireplace with a lot less expense and hassle when you choose the Loft to heat your home.
We are looking at this Empire Loft direct vent gas fireplace insert with intermittent pilot in one of our fireplaces. We do not have electricity running to the fireplace however, and from what I understand, the IP can be run by batteries. Is this correct? Also, does this fireplace have a blower? If so, does the blower need electricity to run?

While this unit does have battery backup, it requires 120 V to operate optimally. As well, the blower will require electricity.
