I want this to be outside on my deck. Is this the unit I should use?

This unit is technically an indoor fireplace and is not designed to be used outdoors. The unit could technically be painted in a high temperature weatherproof paint, but it would require total disassembly to ensure that all surfaces are painted properly. A stainless steel burner assembly would need to be used to prevent corrosion.
I recommend considering using one of our outdoor fireplaces instead, as they are built from a stainless chassis and will hold up to outdoor air and precipitation. The Patio Fireplaces
section of our website will contain these units.

Can this ventless fireplace be enclosed on both sides, and how do you control the temperature? Do you have to have a gas line to install this ventless fireplace? I have a wall that separates my family room and office and would like to install the ventless fireplace so you can see it on either side, would this unit accomplish that?
By Chris on January 4, 2013
This vent free firebox cannot be enclosed on either side as this would prevent the fire from operating properly. Being that this is only a firebox, no burner assembly or logset is included as shown. To control the temperature would depend on the vent-free logset that you choose to place in the firebox. To install this fireplace properly, you would need to have a rigid gas line run from either an existing natural gas or liquid propane supply. Being that this firebox is a peninsula design, it is open on three sides. You would need to find a see through firebox or fireplace such as the Breckenridge Premium Vent-Free See-Thru Flush Gas Firebox

How large of a space will this fireplace heat?
By Tyler M. on August 4, 2014
Answer:This item is a vent-free firebox only and does not include a burner or log set. As such, the amount of heat generated will depend on whatever ventless gas burner you choose to install inside of this unit. This box can accept most of our see-thru (two-sided) ventless gas log sets. If you reply with a shipping zip code and confirm your fuel type (natural gas or propane), we can offer some suggestions and quote you a package accordingly. If so, please also include your preference of control--manual, wall switch or remote control.

I want to purchase this firebox for my home. I've chosen three different log sets and need your advice. Is the 30" log set the appropriate set to purchase? Also, which set of the three would you recommend for the three sided peninsula firebox?
1-Empire 30" Wildwood Refractory Ventless Natural Gas Log Set and Millivolt Harmony Burner
2- Real Fyre 30" Charred Frontier Oak Ventless Natural Gas Logs Set with Variable Flame Remote Pilot Kit
3-Empire 30" Multi-Sided Rock Creek Refractory Ventless Natural Gas Log Set and Millivolt Slope Glaze Burner
The reviews where excellent on the Real Fyre logs, but appropriate are these log sets for a three way firebox?
Would you recommend the Majestic BLOTDL Variable Thermostat Forced Air Firebox Blower - For Lo-Rider See-Thru, Peninsula, and Corner Vent Free Fireboxes?
With the purchase of the firebox, logs, and possibly the blower, what other items will I need to complete the installation?
By eFireplaceStore on December 30, 2014
Both the initial Empire and the Real Fyre set you mentioned are intended for a single sided application. As such, I do not recommend using them with this particular unit. The Empire Rock Creek set you mentioned will work well. The Real Fyre sets are indeed excellent quality, but are not offered in the 30 inch size for a see through configuration, as with the Empire sets. A Real Fyre set that will work is the Real Fyre See Thru 24" Evening Fyre Split Ventless Natural Gas Logs Set with Variable Flame Remote Pilot Kit
The BLOTDL is an excellent add on to boost the efficiency of the unit and increase the reach of the natural convection the unit produces. With the purchase of the firebox, the burner and logs, and the blower assembly, you will have everything you need to proceed with the installation.

Can this be an electric fireplace?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on May 30, 2012
Unfortunately, no, this can only be used as a vent-free fireplace when a ventless gas log set is added to this box. For our selection of electric fireplaces, please click here
