    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Tom from Chicago on January 2, 2013
    What's involved with installing the brick liner kits for this fireplace?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 2, 2013

    Answer:
    Installation of the optional brick liner is very simple. The panels are pre-cut to size, and you would simply slip them into place.

    By jeff from Wakefield, NE on November 10, 2012
    Is this unit available with any options like the sassafras log set or the stacked limestone? How much is the remote if I got the remote ready model?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 12, 2012

    Answer:
    This unit can be equipped with the ceramic stacked limestone liner, which is listed in the list of accessories on the tab above. We currently do not have the sassafras log set listed as an option, but this can be special ordered.

    By Matt from PA on November 19, 2013
    Does this fireplace come equipped with a set of standard logs or do they need to be purchased separately? I did not see anything listed in the "option" section.
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on November 19, 2013

    Answer:
    Yes, this fireplace comes with the log set included. A purchase of this item would include the firebox, burner and log set. Other options, such as a blower or the brick liner kit shown in the photo, are available in the "Accessories" tab on this item page.

    By Dave from Waynesboro, PA on July 19, 2014
    Does this unit come in LP? Can I get a corner unit for it? We currently have a 30000 BTU unit which we heat our upstairs with but want to get a new one.
    By Tyler M. on July 21, 2014

    Answer:
    Yes, this model has a propane equivalent and also a corner mantel option which is available in unfinished oak, unfinished hardwood, white, cherry, finished oak and finished dark oak. Please see these below:

    Empire Vail Premium Vent-Free Propane Fireplace - 32" - VFP-32-BP20LLP

    Empire EMBC1S Corner Wooden Mantel Cabinet with Base - For 32" Fireplaces and Fireboxes - EMBC-1S-UO

    Please let us know if you would like a quote for this configuration. If so, please advise if you want any optional accessories such as the brick liner or a blower. Please also note that this particular fireplace does not offer the ability to add a remote control or wall switch, but another version of this fireplace is available if you prefer.

    By Jeff from ID on December 10, 2014
    Can a wall switch be used on this unit to switch the gas logs on/off?
    By eFireplaceStore on December 10, 2014

    Answer:
    This particular model uses a thermostatic valve and cannot utilize a remote or wall switch. The remote ready version of the unit will be needed in order to use any kind of peripheral control, including a wall switch. That version is the Empire Vail Premium Vent-Free Natural Gas Fireplace with Remote Ready Controls - 32".

    By Steven from Seekonk, MA on February 4, 2015
    Does this fireplace have a glass front? Also, does it have a blower and remote?
    By eFireplaceStore on February 4, 2015

    Answer:
    Like most vent free models, this unit uses a fixed safety screen rather than glass. There is a version of this unit that includes a blower and remote ready valve, which is the Empire Vail Premium Vent-Free Natural Gas Fireplace with Remote Ready Controls and Blower - 32 Inch. The unit can then be controlled by a remote such as the Empire Battery-Operated Remote Control - FRBC.

    Everything We Wanted in a Fireplace

    We've had our Empire Vent-free fireplace approximately 2 months now and it has done exactly what we needed it to do. We bought it as back-up heat for our basement in case the power ever went out and we were gone. So far, that has not happened, but we just got back from vacation and set it on low as back-up for our furnace. While we were gone, temps dropped to -18 below zero and 14 inches of snow was on the ground when we arrived home. Our home was toasty warm upstairs and downstairs. Kudos to our Empire fireplace.


    fantastic experience

    We ordered our fireplace on a Thursday and it was delivered the following Tuesday. The delivery man was very helpful in assisting us with it. When it was unpacked, we were more than pleased at the appearance of the fireplace. When it was all together and hooked up, we turned it on and it was just like being in a cabin in the woods with a real fireplace - so cozy. We are very pleased with the quality and the service from this seller. I would definitely recommend it my friends.

    Very Nice and Works Well

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    This unit is doing a great job for the space we installed it in. The room is 20 x 30 and heats up nicely. The flames are nice looking and the fire is quiet. The fan included does not blow as well as others I have seen and is also a little noisy, but I've seen other units that the blowers are much more noisy than this unit. Installed the unit ourselves without any issues. The directions could be written a little better.
    Pros:
    Stock unit looks good and works well Flames look nice
    Cons:
    Noisy blower Accessories look cheap so we did not install the optional doors The blower is temperature activated. I did not see that in the directions so when we first started the unit we thought it eas not working.


    Looks great and works very well.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    Well made unit. Installation is straight forward. Could use some better instructions for the burner unit regarding remote control options. Looks great when finished with optional trim kits.
    Pros:
    Easy install, looks great, see through design.
    Cons:
    Installation of extruded outer frame is difficult and wimpy using supplied hardware. I drilled and countersunk some holes in the frame and used sheet metal screws to attach firmly.
