    The charred oak log set in this 36-inch gas fireplace combined with ceramic pellets in a burner tumbler create a realistic fire that produces up to 36,000 BTUs. The efficiency rating on this system is 99.9 percent, and it comes with remote-ready millivolt controls for added convenience. There is no need to vent, so there is no need to have a clearance for combustibles. The hem-bent seams mean there is no need for screws or fasteners that can work themselves loose. The piezo ignitor system and the oxygen depletion safety sensor make this a worry-free fireplace system, and the matte black hood and slat louvers create an elegant look for any room.

    What does remote ready mean?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 15, 2013

    Answer:
    "Remote ready" indicates that the unit has the ability to accept a remote control or wall switch/thermostat for operation. This particular Vail vent-free fireplace uses a millivolt valve that does not require electricity for operation. It utilizes a standing pilot light, from which the fireplace can be turned on or back to the pilot with a remote control, wall switch or thermostat. There is no remote control included, but you can see the options for this fireplace in the "Accessories" tab on this item page.

    Great fireplace for the price but does not allow for a remote so there is a little extra work involved

    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.

    Nice

    Very Nice and Works Well

    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.
