Product Description
Do you have a masonry fireplace that is not very nice to look at and you want to make a drastic change? You do not have to completely remodel your existing fireplace. This Breckenridge deluxe louvered gas firebox insert is an easy solution to your problem. It is very inexpensive and you do not even have to have an existing fireplace to use this, although that is possible as well.

You will need gas logs to use with this 36-inch firebox.

Customer Questions & Answers
By Keith Auvil from Ocala,Fl on January 2, 2012
Does this Firebox ( VFD36FBOL) come with any type of Ceramic liner or do you have to purchase separately?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 3, 2012

Answer:
This firebox does not come standard with any ceramic liner. The options for liner are listed in the "Accessories" tab on this page and you can choose any of those. These liners are not required, and if you purchase this firebox without adding of those options, you can still install and operate a ventless log set inside this unit safely.

By Angela from Alexander City, AL on May 20, 2015
Is this Empire Breckenridge VFD36FBOL vent-free firebox set up to use natural gas or LP?
By Will M. on May 21, 2015

Answer:
This is just a firebox and a log set of your choosing would need to be purchased separately. It can be used with most 24 inch natural gas or propane vent free log sets.

By Al Olivier from South Louisiana on October 5, 2012
The picture shown has a gas log set in it. It also shows a hood and a brick liner. What comes with this model if no options are selected?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 8, 2012

Answer:
This model of firebox will include the black louvers and hood that are shown, but does not include the log set or the brick liner.

The entire Breckenridge line of fireboxes are meant to contain a properly sized model of vent free logs. However, these must be purchased separately. While most models of Breckenridge have some version of liner installed, this model does not. The boxes that have a liner included will state so in the item description or title on the item page.

By Farid from East Brunswick, NJ on January 10, 2013
What size fireplace will match my fireplace box, model VFD 36 FBOL?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 10, 2013

Answer:
This firebox is designed to house either an 18 or 24 inch ventless gas log set. The unit itself must be installed into a framed wood opening. Framing dimensions for the unit are listed in the features on the item page.

By Bob from Conway, SC on October 29, 2012
What is the difference between Breckenridge models VFD36FBOL and VFD36FB2DL? I'm looking at putting one in a new home.
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 30, 2012

Answer:
The only difference between those two models is that the VFD36FB2DL includes the traditional brick ceramic fiber liner for the inside of the firebox. This liner is not included with the VFD36FB0L (but it can be added later as a separate purchase.)

Please note that neither of these fireboxes include the vent-free gas logs and burner needed for operation. You can see our selection of ventless gas logs here.

By Nick from Detroit on January 3, 2013
I am looking at this firebox. I have a couple of friends with ventless log sets that have put them directly into an existing fireplace, leaving the flue shut for operation but using the existing fireplace as the firebox. What is the purpose of this versus that type of design?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 3, 2013

Answer:
This vent-free firebox is intended for use in situations where you have no existing fireplace (a brick/masonry or wood-burning manufactured unit that has been tested and listed for use with gas logs) in which to install a ventless log set. Obviously, this firebox cannot be used for anything other than a ventless log set.

By Joe from Cross Fork, PA on January 31, 2015
What is the shipping weight of this unit?
By eFireplaceStore on February 2, 2015

Answer:
The shipping weight of this item is approximately 120 pounds. Less packaging, the weight is 96 pounds.

By Heather on October 17, 2011
How many btu's does this unit put out & how many square feet does it heat? does it come with a screen or logs?
By Customer Service on October 17, 2011

Answer:
The Breckenridge VFD36FB0L Deluxe Vent-Free Louvered Gas Firebox that you inquired about does not come with a log set or burner, and depending on what kind of log set and burner you would purchase to go with it, the BTUs and heating area would vary. For an idea of what kind of gas logs that would work with this firebox, enter the dimensions of the firebox (36" FW x 33" RW x 19" D)into our gas log calculator (located on our Gas Logs Page). From here, you will be given a list of gas log sets that will fit into this firebox. Click on each set to see more specific information regarding BTU input/output and additional information.

The Breckenridge VFD36FB0L Deluxe Vent-Free Louvered Gas Firebox does come with a screen.

By Mike from Georgia on March 7, 2014
The picture shows a screen. Does this come with the box or is it an extra?
By Chris on March 7, 2014

Answer:
This firebox does indeed include the hanging mesh screens as shown in the photo.

By Mike from CA on December 27, 2013
Are glass doors included or do I need to purchase them separately?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 27, 2013

Answer:
This unit does not offer glass doors as an option. Because it is vent free, it requires room air for combustion, which glass doors would inhibit. However, there are several styles of operable screen doors in the accessory section for this item. They are able to be added separately to enhance the look of the unit.
