    i am looking at the vent free gas fireplace and the direct vent , what is the difference in the overall look and feel of the two units ,since there is a very big difference in the cost to purchase and install one verses the other.
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on February 14, 2012

    Answer:
    Please note that this Breckenridge, as with some other vent-free options, is only a firebox and does not include a burner or logs. This may be what accounts for your belief that the costs between direct vent and vent-free are very different. When you factor in the costs for a ventless log set inside a vent-free firebox, the costs are quite similar. The only big aesthetic difference between the two is that direct vent units will have a fixed glass panel to seal the unit off from the room, while any vent-free unit will be open to the room.

    For more detailed information on the differences, please see our Gas Fireplace Buying Guide at the following link:

    Can this product be used outdoors under a covered porch? Can you use any gas logs with it or do they have to be for outdoors ?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on July 15, 2013

    Answer:
    We do not recommend this vent-free firebox for use outdoors, as it will eventually rust and corrode. We do offer stainless steel vent-free systems, such as the following:

    Is vent free safe? I guess I don't understand how it doesn't have to be vented?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on July 30, 2012

    Answer:
    Yes, vent-free appliances can be described as safe, mainly due to the fact that each one has an oxygen depletion sensor (ODS) as part of the pilot assembly. The ODS will shut any vent-free appliance off if the oxygen in the room starts to approach unsafe levels.

    What is the difference between "vent-free" and "rear vent" fireboxes?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 6, 2013

    Answer:
    Vent-free fireboxes are completely self-contained and have no provisions for vent piping. If they do not already come with a vent-free log set, a properly sized set must be purchased and installed. These units are very efficient and can be installed in locations that vented appliances cannot.

    Rear-vent units are a type of direct vent fireplace. These units have a sealed glass firebox and can vent directly through an outside wall. They draw air for combustion from the outdoors and vent exhaust through the same coaxial piping system. These units have become popular, as they are not affected by pressure changes in the home and have no effect on indoor air quality.

    Can this Empire Breckenridge fireplace be installed in a corner?
    By eFireplaceStore on April 4, 2016

    Answer:
    This certainly can be installed in a corner. The included owner's manual will have a dedicated section in regards to framing. One of the figures within that framing guide will cover the necessary framing dimensions to house the appliance in a corner.
