We are remodeling our bathroom and removing an old Jacuzzi tub and building a shower. I know codes will vary, but generally, could an electric fireplace be placed at one end of a glass enclosed shower with nozzles on the other end with a 95" wall span?
By eFireplaceStore on February 24, 2015
Answer:Most likely not. National electric codes will prohibit the installation of any electrical outlet or appliance that is not shielded or rated for use in a damp location. Because electric fireplaces do not carry this rating, code will likely prohibit such placement.

Do you know of any model electric fireplace that can be mounted in a bathroom?
By Brennan W. on January 11, 2017
Answer:Electric units are fine to be installed in a bathroom provided it's not located near a tub or water source.

Is this fireplace approved for outdoor use? I am looking for a fireplace to use in my screened in porch (covered, but damp). If not, can you recommend one that would be suitable? Thank you
By Chris C. on October 7, 2016
Answer:Unfortunately, this model is not designed to be installed in an outdoor type of setting. The temperature changes and humidity can cause the fireplace to fail due to corrosion in a very short amount of time. An outdoor rated gas unit is a possibility. Unfortunately, I am unaware of any outdoor rated electric fireplaces.

Where do the glass beads go on this Napoleon EF30 electric fireplace with heater and what do they do?
By Chris C. on October 8, 2015
Answer:The glass ember bed is featured on the EF30G to provide a look which is more contemporary as compared to the standard log set. The glass media is simply spread across the bottom tray above the accent lighting in the bottom of the fireplace.

If you put a TV above this fireplace, what is the minimum distance the TV should be installed?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 26, 2013
Answer:The manufacturer does not provide a listed clearance to a television. This is because it is impractical to test this unit with all the different models of televisions that are available. We apologize, but we cannot advise on a proper distance for this reason. Please also note that your television manufacturer will most likely void any warranty if it is installed above any kind of heating unit like this model.

Is there a showroom where we can see these fireplaces?
By Magan B. on November 15, 2012
Answer:I am sorry but we are only one location in Memphis, TN. We do not have a list of local dealers in your area. We do offer free shipping to San Francisco, CA, and there would be no tax.

Is this Napoleon EF30 electric fireplace with heater cost efficient to use year round?
By eFireplaceStore on January 4, 2016
Answer:Electric heaters are generally not the most cost effective solution for year round heating. Their high energy consumption to heat output ratio means that they can be a costly supplemental heat source. However, the unit can operate with the back lighting only, if that is your intention.

Can this product or another product on the website be hung on a wall and with screws, or on top of a table?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 7, 2011
We do not have any electric units that can be placed onto a table and most must be recessed into a wall. However, you may be interested in our electric stoves. Please follow the below link to view one of these.

Hello, I am moving into a Mobile Park Home (approx 375 sq/ft). The Park Manager says that my electricity is 110 Volt/30 amp capacity. I very much want to install an electric fireplace like this Napoleon EF30 electric fireplace with heater. Is there a model that would fit this capacity?
