    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Olena from CT on April 30, 2013
    I'm building a "fireplace" without a chimney or flue. I want achieve a realist look, but was going to use a firebox with a gas log set. Would this firebox work? Can it be installed so it's flush to the floor and with brick inside. Do I need to use a vented firebox?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on April 30, 2013

    Answer:
    For the most realistic look, we do recommend a vented gas log set up. This would require a zero clearance woodburning fireplace with a complete class A chimney pipe system installed. Obviously, this would be a much more expensive option as opposed to getting a vent-free firebox such as this Valiant model and installing a ventless gas log set inside. Vented gas log sets provide a more realistic flame, though most of the heat is lost up the chimney. Ventless gas logs, while still aesthetically pleasing, simply cannot replicate the authenticity of a woodburning fire as well as a vented set due to its limitations as a clean-burning system. However, if you do desire the floor-level look above all else, we would indeed recommend this Valiant model and a 30" ventless gas log set. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Do you carry a blower for this Firebox? If so, which ones will work?
    Thank you.
    By Brennan W. on February 3, 2017

    Answer:
    This unit does not have a blower option.

    By Rhonda from Mississipi on March 26, 2014
    Does this model have to be installed on the "floor" or can it be installed on a hearth? Also, do you have to have doors or a screen on this? I want the look of a "real fireplace" and this is as close as I've seen to one. Also, can this be changed to herrinbone? And what size logs would I need for this size?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 26, 2014

    Answer:
    While this unit is a "floor" model, it can certainly be built up on an raised hearth, with the opening flush to the hearth extension in front of the unit. By code, the unit has to be shipped with the pull chain screens, but they do not have to be used. Unfortunately, we do not carry a herringbone version of this unit. For this size, a 30 inch log set would be used.
