What is the rating of the blower? How large of an area can the unit heat? Is it a 110 or 220 unit?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 12, 2012
Answer:This blower assembly has a rating of 100 CFM of air movement at its maximum setting. The blower uses a 115 volt power outlet. For the average home, this fireplace would heat an area of approximately 1,000 square feet.

Does thus unit come with remote control starter and are there any doors or glass front on the unit?
By Chris M. on October 30, 2011
This unit does not come with a remote or a remote ready pilot kit. The following unit is almost identical to this unit but does come with a remote ready pilot kit:
Vail Premium Vent-Free Propane Fireplace with Remote Ready Controls - 36 Inch
You would need to purchase the remote separately. Your remote control options will be located in the accessories tab.
The doors and other decorative options are also located in the accessories tab.

Do they have a kit to convert to propane?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on April 16, 2012
Unfortunately, no vent-free fireplace or stove can be field-converted from LP to NG or vice versa. However, this same model is available for use with propane. You can see the LP model here

What is the difference between this fireplace and VFP-36-BP30LN?
By Tyler M. on October 2, 2014
The difference between this model and the VFP-36-BP30LN Vail Vent-Free Fireplace
is the method of control and the blower feature. This VFP-36-BP21LN includes a blower, while the other model does not. However, this model must be manually-controlled with the built-in hydraulic thermostat, whereas the VFP-36-BP30LN Vail Vent-Free Fireplace
offers a remote-ready millivolt valve to which you can add an optional hand-held remote control, wall switch or wall thermostat. Finally, the VFP-36BP31LN Vail
features the remote-ready millivolt valve and the blower.
