Hi I recently purchased a Napoleon torch that was set up for natural gas. How do I convert to propane? Do you have the product I need?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 30, 2013
Answer:Yes, we can indeed get a NG to LP conversion kit for your Napoleon Torch direct vent fireplace. Please reply with a shipping zip code and we can provide a quote. Lead time on this part would be about two weeks.

Beside the Napoleon Torch GT8N having 2 ON/OFF Switches (One for burner operation and the other for the light kit), Can the torch accept a Remote Control or Wall Switch?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 30, 2012
Answer:The GT8 can only utilize the pair of on/off controls that it is already equipped with. Due to the non-millivolt gas valve that is used, it cannot be made to use a remote or wall switch.

Can I install a timer on this fireplace?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 10, 2013
Answer:This particular fireplace has an integral 110V control panel with a simple on/off switch. While a timer is not specified for this model, one could be added by splicing the hot wire (black) downstream of the switch and installing a spring wound timer. The switch would still need to be left in the circuit so that the unit could be shut down quickly in the event of an emergency. I recommend using 14 or 12 gauge Romex wire, running to a single gang switch box to mount the timer.
