Unfortunately, we do not currently offer any vent-free outdoor units with a linear-style burner. Please note also that no vent-free unit will have a glass front, as they need air from the surrounding area for combustion. We apologize that we cannot assist you further.

I am looking to have this installed where I used to have my BBQ so the natural gas is already there. Do these provide any heat? Currently, we have a stand alone patio propane heater but I want to get rid of it and use the fireplace. I was told you can get them with a blower that continuously blows the heat out, but others say no there no such thing. Can you please give me the correct information?

While a good number of indoor fireplaces offer blowers, outdoor models do not. Because of issues such as humidity and precipitation, as well as their diminished capacity to circulate air in an outdoor environment, manufacturers have simply chosen not to pursue that option.
