What is the clearance to the ceiling? Would a wood frame picture edge 2ft up on the wall behind it be ok?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on July 29, 2013
Answer:Clearances to the ceiling from the top of the stove is 48 inches. The stove requires 5 inches of clearance from the back of the stove to the wall. As long as the picture frame does not extend over the stove, it could certainly be mounted above it.

I'm looking for a natural gas heater like the Napoleon but due to asthma and COPD issues, I need one that vents outside. I had a freestanding gas heater that was close to zero clearance and it vented up 2-3 feet then out the exterior wall. Do you market a heater such as this?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 12, 2014
If you like the style of the Arlington stove, Napoleon offers a direct vent version of this same model. The vented version is the Napoleon Arlington Direct Vent Cast Iron Gas Stove
In the example photo, it is shown venting directly through the wall behind the unit, but it can certainly be vented upwards and then horizontally through the wall. I am not certain what the square footage is that you need to heat, but this model is capable of warming 450 square feet. I can recommend a larger model, if you would like to verify the footage you need to heat.

By Brennan W. on April 14, 2015
Answer:This stove is 25 3/8" high, 19 1/4" wide, and 15 3/4" deep.

How hot does this Napoleon Arlington vent-free cast iron stove get on the sides and top? I would like to replace my propane Hester that is located between two wood cabinets. There would be about 1" of space between the stove and cabinets on each side. My current propane Hester does not get hot on the top and sides.
By Brennan W. on June 1, 2015
Answer:This stove requires 4" of clearance from the sides and 2" of clearance from the rear, and as such would not fit in your application.

Is there a pressure regulator supplied with this stove? If not, what are the specifications for one?
By Will M. on February 28, 2017
Answer:While this model will indeed include a valve (regulator), you will need to have the incoming pressure verified by a licensed plumber or gas fitter prior to installing any gas hearth system to confirm the pressure will be adequate. Low pressure will result in the stove either not functioning or performing poorly at the very least. Excessive pressure will result in the valve "locking out," requiring replacement or service by a licensed plumber or gas fitter.
As is the case with any gas hearth system, the valve or regulator is simply meant to reduce normal house pressure (under .5 psi) at the inlet to manifold (outlet) pressure and should not be used to correct any existing improper pressure issues from the wrong diameter pipe size being used to service the hearth, which is why all gas hearth manufacturers will require the gas pipe serving the hearth be installed by a legally qualified plumber or gas fitter.
In addition, hearth manufacturers will require installation of the appliance be performed by a qualified professional. While installation is frequently performed by a homeowner, any issues resulting from improper installation will not be covered by the manufacturer's warranty. With that being said, a ventless system is carefully designed to provide complete combustion and does not require venting, so the adjustments needed to account for the venting and air to fuel mixture will not really apply.
Following the log and ember placement instructions will be imperative as incorrectly placing any media atop the burner will result in incomplete combustion (carbon monoxide), so the key to safe and proper performance of the stove will be ensuring proper pressure is provided to the valve, which is between 4.5"-7" w.c. for natural gas and between 11"-13" for liquid propane. The valve will reduce this inlet pressure down to 3.5" w.c. for natural gas and 10" w.c. for L.P.
