All you need to in order to pick out this Small Innsbrook Vent-Free Gas Fireplace Insert is a desire to get the absolute best heating appliance you can get for your money. Here are a few features this classically-styled insert can bring to your home that other inserts can't match.

First of all, this versatile unit can be installed as a zero-clearance fireplace or as an insert in your existing fireplace. The realistic hand-painted ceramic fiber logs create a great look in the hearth while the extremely efficient Slope Glaze burner cranks out up to 20,000 BTU's. You'll get the included ultra-quiet, variable speed blower, a built-in thermostat for precise temperature control, and a brick liner that provides a traditional masonry appearance.

Besides the bells and whistles, though, this insert also comes with an Oxygen Depletion Sensor to prevent accidents during operation and a 5-year limited warranty for long-term peace of mind. Whatever your needs or expectations may be, the Innsbrook can tackle them all.


Please Note: This item is a vent free appliance and installation of it may be prohibited in your jurisdiction. Customers are responsible for checking local codes and regulations prior to purchase.

I have an electric fireplace. Is it possible to convert to natural gas?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 17, 2013

Answer:
Electric fireplace manufacturers produce their inserts and mantels specifically for use with one another. Because of this, the extra clearances needed to fit a gas fireplace are simply not there.

By pam from Buffalo, NY on October 30, 2012
I have an existing fireplace opening, width 26" x height 20" x depth 12". Do you have any ventless gas inserts to fit this?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 30, 2012

Answer:
Unfortunately, none of our full-bodied vent-free inserts will fit, as the smallest ones we sell (like this Innsbrook) require just a bit more than the 12" depth you have.

You may want to consider a 16"/18" ventless gas log set instead. Please see our selection of ventless gas logs.

By Jane from RI on August 18, 2013
Can this be installed on a slab home?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 19, 2013

Answer:
The type of foundation for this particular insert to be used will not be an issue. The insert must be installed into a properly built masonry fireplace or a manufactured fireplace that has been approved to use a manufactured insert. As long as you have one of the two and the sizing meets the minimum requirements for this insert, the installation can proceed.

I am looking to build an entertainment center and would like to include a small gas fireplace under the TV section. Do you have a ventless unit that would work for such an application?
By eFireplaceStore on August 1, 2014

Answer:
We do have some small models of vent free fireplaces that can be built into an enclosure or entertainment center. One such model that is popular for this purpose is the Empire Vail Vent-Free Natural Gas Fireplace - 24". This unit has a built in modulating thermostat and can be jetted for a 10k or 20k BTU output.

By Rocky from Amanda, Ohio on November 29, 2012
I have an existing mantel and and want to replace the existing insert.The existing insert has a flange that butts up against the opening. Would your product do the same?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 29, 2012

Answer:
Indeed, any of the three listed surrounds will serve to bridge the gap from the body of the insert to the face of your fireplace.

By Patrick from New York on August 2, 2012
Is there any special venting this unit requires? Is there state laws regarding installation and venting. I have a fireplace opening.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 2, 2012

Answer:
Vent free inserts, such as this product, do not require any venting to be installed. They are self contained units with no provision for a chimney and are designed to be easily retrofitted into a fireplace opening of appropriate size.

I do recommend consulting with local code enforcement to see if vent free appliances are acceptable for use in your area. Some states and cities do not allow these types of appliances.

By Bob from Monroe Twp, PA on May 20, 2014
The fireplace in our home I believe is an unusual size. It was in our home when we bought it. I am trying to find a fireplace insert that will hold gas logs with a blower system. The measurements of the opening of the fireplace are as follows. 20" high maximum x 32" wide max x 14" deep. Is there any such size available?
By eFireplaceStore on May 20, 2014

Answer:
The small Innsbrook insert that you are viewing now will actually work quite well for your application. This unit features a realistic ceramic log assembly and a circulating blower. The standard 6 x 3 surround will do well to conceal the small amount of extra space you will have between the edges of the insert and your fireplace opening.

By Mike from Portland, OR on October 1, 2012
Does this unit come with a glass front? Where do the exhaust fumes go?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 1, 2012

Answer:
No, the front frame assembly on this insert is a mesh screen, not a glass front. This is due to the vent-free nature of the insert: it needs room air for combustion and exhausts back into the room.

By Denny from Rockport, IN on December 2, 2012
Can I get a remote?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 3, 2012

Answer:
No, this particular model does not allow for a remote control. However, the Small Innsbrook Vent-Free Gas Fireplace Insert with Millivolt Controls is the same model with the ability to add a remote. There are a few different options for remotes for that insert, each of which are listed in the "Accessories" tab on that page.
