Do I have a choice of control options (millivolt control, electronic ignition) for this Napoleon BGD42N direct-vent gas fireplace?
By Will M. on July 1, 2015
There used to be a BGD42CFNE available as the electronic ignition version of this fireplace, however, this product is not longer available and a conversion cannot be done. Napoleon offers the HD40 and HD46 with electronic ignition as similar replacements.

My house is vinyl sided. What venting kit and house guard would I need?
What is the difference between the Napoleon fireplace models BGD42N and BGD42CFN?
By eFireplaceStore on November 11, 2014
The standard BGD42 model will have a louvered face. While not as clean looking as the BGD42CFN, it offers better air circulation for a blower. The BGD42CFN offers a clean looking perimeter trim kit for a modern look. However, it is not as effective at moving air with a fan.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
One huge thing that I have to commend the manufacturer on is how easily this fireplace will turn on... even without power! We had no power in our home for six days following an unexpected winter storm, and miraculously when I used the power switch (just a normal light switch in the wall) the fireplace came on. Not only did it come on without any power, but the unit managed to make it completely comfortable in our entire house. I don't know what I was expecting, but his unit has completely surpassed those expectations, and we love it.
