Great fireplace it does not disappoint, very classy! We recently remodeled our home and added a large great room /kitchen combo. We purchased this fireplace because we did not want the fireplace to be dwarfed by the size and height of the room. We had it professionally installed as a raised hearth and added a mantle and stone. So it does make a dramatic statement in the corner of the room. Fireplace works very well and does heat the room. Living flame is a "must have" for a direct vent fireplace. It really is realistic looking especially if you purchase the burning embers that stay lit after gas is turned off (about 15 minutes). The unit has a large clean front and an interior light. Unfortunately, the manufacturer does need to tweak the length of the interior electrical cord for mounting purposes. The rheostat for the interior light is in the bottom vent area and has a short cord. The bottom grille has to be lowered to turn it on/off. We turn on unit with remote and forget about it, when we remember the grille is just too hot to lower. So needless to say we really don't use the interior light. Maybe it is an easy fix for someone who knows how to rewire and put on a longer cord, but our fireplace installer could not do that. We wanted it mounted on a wall which was about 5' away from bottom grille. The remote control is a wonderful feature, but does need several improvements. It needs brighter light and brighter numbers so it can be used in a darkened room. Also, it should control light in the fireplace which it does not do. Light is a manual feature.

I currently have a Mendotta fireplace that needs to be replaced. Could I just buy the box and use the decorative frame from my Mendotta fireplace. It matches the granite surround.

You may use whatever surround you like with our Tahoe fireplaces. You'll just want to confirm dimensions on that surround. This fireplace features dimensions of 43 3/8" wide by 34 3/4" high.

In reading about the Tahoe Luxury, it states that there is a "Green Earth Preferred RF model" that doesn't have a standing pilot. It also implies that if there is a loss of power, a standing pilot can be lit to allow it to operate without power. Any details on this?
