What is the weight of this unit? The maximum heat output and minimum heat output shows the same thing. Does this mean there is no adjustment of heat output? I am afraid of this putting out too much heat and of not being able to leave it on for long periods.
By Will M. on July 14, 2017
Answer:This fireplace weighs 87 pounds and the fireplace has a BTU output of between 25-32,000 BTU in natural gas and 23-32,000 BTU in liquid propane. Please note that ventless systems should never be left on for more than about 3 hours at a time and while the flame height is indeed adjustable with this model, the Hi/Lo knob may be difficult to access in order to make this adjustment. Plus, the included remote will only turn the burner flame off and on.
