    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Mike from Pinehurst, NC on August 31, 2013
    If we select a ventless fireplace, will we have a glass front or will it be open to the room?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 3, 2013

    Answer:
    Almost all vent free fireplaces will be open to the room and use a safety screen to prevent unwanted contact with the flame. However, a few models will use a pane of glass and release heat from a register along the top of the unit. This model is set up in such a way. You have the choice of using the tempered glass front, which uses a solid pane of glass or the glass window with surround. The surround is a metal perimeter frame that will encompass the glass viewing window.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    We opted for this ventless fireplace when remodeling our basement - instead of adding other heat source and it was the perfect solution. It adds wonderful ambience while heating the whole room very fast.


    Easy to install, works great; needs some attention to detail.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    I liked this model for its overall design and its price point. Customer service was helpful in ensuring I was ordering the right options, etc. My contractor was a bit stymied by the less-than-clear electrical drawings but he got it installed and it is up and running in about 1.5 hours total including doing some rough carpentry in the space it was installed in to. My only criticism of the unit itself is that the surround should be constructed to a higher spec with fewer tolerances on the joints/joins/bends.
    Pros:
    Looks and works great. Puts out quite a bit of heat! We are happy.
    Cons:
    See my concerns regarding the surround's construction.
