Are there any safety concerns with non-vented fireplaces with CO2 gases?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 26, 2012
The two primary by-products of vent-free fireplaces and heaters are carbon dioxide (not the dangerous carbon monoxide) and water vapor.
Indeed, there are a number of factors to consider before purchasing a vent-free appliance. Please see our Gas Fireplace and Stove Buying Guide
for more information.

Can this unit be installed flush against my sheet rock wall? Can I add a marble surround to it and the mantel? Does this unit contain brick ceramic liner? Does the unit come equipped with a ventless gas log set? Is the 36" dimension for the inside to outside measurement? What size gas log fits inside of the firebox?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on September 17, 2013
Yes, this firebox's rear flanges have a zero clearance to combustibles, and yes, any noncombustible material can be used on the face of this firebox up to the opening. This particular model does include traditional brick ceramic liner, but it does not include a ventless gas log set. For our 36" fireboxes, we recommend a 24" ventless gas log set; please see our full selection here:

I have a large screened-in porch. Can I use this firebox for a fireplace?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 12, 2012
Because of the humid outdoor air that is drawn into the firebox of an outdoor fireplace, I do not recommend using a standard steel box, such as this product. It would be better to use a stainless steel box, as they will be able to stand up to years of exposure to outdoor air with no ill effects.
One popular unit we carry can be seen here
. This model will already come equipped with vent free logs that are also certified for outdoor use.

I only have a 1/2" gas supply line. Will this give me enough gas to get a sufficient flame?
By Owen on January 2, 2017
Answer:The firebox is designed to accept a 3/8-inch gas line for an approved
vent-free gas log set. Make sure you have the line installed by a qualified service person in accordance with all building codes. Consult local building
codes to properly size the gas supply line leading to the 3/8-inch
hook-up at the unit.
