    By Linda from Bridgeton, NJ on January 11, 2015
    I am looking for a blower unit to fit an Empire VFD30CC30BP. I went to a local store and they want me to use a blower unit for a smaller stove and "retro fit" the incorrect blower unit. Do you have a blower unit to fit the VFD30CC30BP?
    By Kevin E. on January 12, 2015

    Answer:
    Per the manufacturer, the proper blower for your stove is the CIB unit. You can find this accessory here.

    Can I use this unit in CA?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 18, 2013

    Answer:
    In most areas of California, vent-free gas appliances are illegal. We recommend contacting your local building code enforcement office for more information.

    Can you tell me the heating radius of this stove? Will it cover approximately 1200 sq. feet?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 19, 2012

    By Bob from Maine on March 5, 2013
    Is this unit field convertible to direct vent?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 5, 2013

    Answer:
    No, this vent-free stove cannot be converted to a direct unit. Empire does make the Heritage stove in a separate direct vent model; please see below:

    What is the model number for the blower that would go with this Empire VFP30CA30 Heritage vent-free cast iron gas stove with porcelain finish (VFD30CC30BN)?
    By Will M. on November 17, 2015

    Answer:
    The Empire Automatic Blower for Heritage Cast Iron Gas Stoves - CIB-3 is the correct blower for your stove.

    By Carl from Hemphill, TX on February 7, 2016
    I want to install the vent free stove but still want the full appearance of a real wood burning stove. Do you have the stove pipe to go from the stove to the ceiling?
    By Will M. on February 8, 2016

    Answer:
    We will not offer stovepipe specifically made for our vent free stoves, however, we do offer the Empire DVP30CA30 Heritage Direct Vent Cast Iron Gas Stove with Porcelain Finish - Natural Gas - DVP30CC30BN.

    By Mary from Bonfield, IL on December 10, 2015
    What is the purpose for the stone inlay of this Empire VFP30CA30 Heritage vent-free cast iron gas stove with porcelain finish? Is it merely for decoration?
    Does the electric blower assembly at the bottom of the unit pull warm air down and out or does it merely blow out?
    By Chris C. on December 10, 2015

    Answer:
    The stone inlays are merely decorative to replace the grill inlays which come standard with the stove. The blower assembly does mount at the bottom rear of the stove allowing it to pull cooler air from the floor and push the air through a plenum along the backside of the stove which then forces the heated air back into the living space.

    By Kenneth from Wyandotte, MI on January 5, 2014
    I was considering purchasing this stove. What accessories do I need? I was thinking of the blower kit CIB-3. How noisy is it? Can it be added later?
    I am a little confused as to which remote control and thermostat I would need. Should I have a wall mount thermostat or hand held with the remote control? What does the wall switch turn off and on? Is there a similar stove with electronic ignition? Are you able to adjust flame height?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 6, 2014

    Answer:
    The CIB-3 blower kit has a decibel reading in the mid 50 range. While it is certainly audible, it is quiet enough that you can have a conversation over the fan without it being distracting. The fan can indeed be added later if you wish.

    Use of either a handheld remote or wall mounted thermostat is strictly personal preference. A remote is handy, but some customers prefer the wall thermostat, as it cannot be misplaced. Both items turn the main burner off and on. The pilot flame must be manually lit at the beginning of the season. Flame height can be manually adjusted on the gas control valve.

    By Laura from Seneca, NY on October 8, 2014
    We are currently looking to purchase a vent free gas stove. Is there a thermostat to control desired heat temperature which turns the unit on and off at certain room temperatures?
    By eFireplaceStore on October 8, 2014

    Answer:
    This is indeed an option. Millivolt stoves, such as the model you are viewing now, will have the ability to use either a wall mounted thermostat or a handheld thermostatic remote. Both options will allow you to program a desired temperature set point that the appliance will modulate to.

    Installed the heater a few days ago and is working quite well. Purchased the optional fan blower which really helps put out the heat. Also purchased the wireless thermostat and receiver which is a nice combination. Be sure to follow the instructions included that enables the thermostat to communicate with the receiver.
    Pros:
    Appears to have heavy well-built construction. Easy to assemble.


    Excellent Stove In All Respects But One

    The installer had no problem setting everything up with this stove. The logs are realistic-looking and the flame is pleasant to watch. The heat generated by this stove is excellent. I was able to stop using my heat pump to heat the house since the stove was installed and reduced my electric bill considerably. I have 9' ceilings and turn on the ceiling fans to move the heat around. In terms of overall value and functionality, this stove is an excellent value. The only reason I do not give a 5th star is because the two front doors on the stove will not stay closed. The stove is perfectly level, but the two front doors swing open and remain that way. I called the manufacturer but was not able to get any way to solve the problem. I ended up using a dark color wire tie to fasten the two door frames together and keep them closed. It's inconspicuous and I've not given it any further thought. Actually, there does not seem to be much logic to opening the doors, which are only a metal frame without any glass.
    Pros:
    Appearance Performance Excellent functionality
    Cons:
    Inability to keep the doors of the stove closed.

    Works perfectly for what we got it for. Heats up area fast. We have all electric heat so it was nice when we lost power during an ice storm.
