    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Celia from FL on January 27, 2013
    Can you have the stones in this type of fireplace?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 28, 2013

    Answer:
    Because of the low profile of this fireplace's burner assembly, it is not able to be used with a ceramic stone set. Addition of stones would cause sooting and possible damage to the burner. Typically, only deeper fireplaces that are built into a wall enclosure are designed to be modified in this way.

    By Rebecca from Falls Church, VA on April 18, 2013
    How hot does the exterior of this unit get?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on April 18, 2013

    Answer:
    This wall-mounted fireplace can get quite hot. The back of the unit, since it is only to be mounted on a wall, will always be less than 140 degrees Celsius (284 degrees Fahrenheit ). This is because drywall is rated for 140-150 degrees Celsius. However, the sides will transfer heat, and, depending on how long it has been running, it can get rather hot. Please see the owner's manual and see the manufacturer's specific guidelines regarding the heat of the unit. Among them include advising you not to install this in a main walkway within the home, always supervise children around the unit, and more.

    By Henry from New York on January 29, 2014
    Can the Napoleon WHD31 be used as floor fireplace? If yes, do I still need the surround with fireplace? I plan to build a 6" platform with stone floor where I would secure and house the fireplace in framed fireplace box with stone tiles on the outside in the corner of the family room.

    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 30, 2014

    Answer:
    This unit normally has a 12 inch required clearance to combustibles beneath the firebox. If noncombustible framing and finishing material is used, the clearance could be reduced, but it would still be prudent to allow a few inches for air circulation. A surround must be used with this model, as it is part of the design and is required for cooling air to flow through the chassis.

    By Sally from Dayville, CT on September 17, 2015
    I am interested in this Napoleon WHD31NSB Plazmafire wall-mounted gas fireplace but I have a few questions. What have cathedral ceilings in the living room and a loft with a ceiling fan above it. Does this unit have a blower to help circulate the heat? Can it operate during a power outage? What size of area, square feet, can this unit heat?
    By Will M. on September 17, 2015

    Answer:
    Wall-mount units like the product in question will typically not have the ability to house a blower due to appliance design, so a blower will not be an option. Furthermore, in order to design wall-mount appliances that do not require framing, hearth manufacturers have to design a very slim combustion chamber in an effort to produce an appliance that will not project far from the wall. Subsequently, the BTU output on smaller models will not be dramatic. Depending on gas type, this appliance will heat anywhere from 457-571 square feet with standard 8' ceilings. As you have cathedral ceilings, these numbers should be reduced. In order to have an appliance that has a more modern, linear style with some heating capability and an optional blower, you would need to consider a fireplace that can be framed in to the wall where you are planning this installation.

    By JoAnn from NJ on June 22, 2017
    Does this come with a blower motor fan and a remote?
    By Tyler M. on June 22, 2017

    Answer:
    No, there is no blower option for this fireplace and while a remote control is available, it is not included with the unit.

    By Andy from PA on December 26, 2014
    Can I paint the Napoleon WHD31 fireplace surround with latex wall paint?
    By eFireplaceStore on December 26, 2014

    Answer:
    Latex wall paint will not have the heat resistance needed for your application. However, any of our high temperature paints, such as the Stove Paint & Fireplace Paint could be used to refinish the surround.

    By Hylton from Framingham, MA on January 5, 2012
    Secondly, I can find the remote control options on the website mentioned in your video. Can someone give me general and pricing info?
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on January 6, 2012

    Answer:
    These Plazmafire's can indeed be used with a remote. You can find our two most popular options by following the two links below:

    By Sebastian from Chicago on November 17, 2012
    I'm thinking abut purchasing this fireplace and placing it on an exterior wall in my living room. The space from the drywall to the exterior wall is about three (3) inches. Will this work?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 19, 2012

    Answer:
    There will not be an issue with the horizontal run, as the unit can support up to a 20 inch run with the provided vent pipe. The included pipe can be field modified for different wall thicknesses.

    By Mike from Dallas, TX on July 10, 2014
    What is the widest version of this fireplace that is available?
    By eFireplaceStore on July 10, 2014

    Answer:
    The WHD31 is currently the widest wall hanging direct vent fireplace that is offered by Napoleon. All other larger linear models require being built into a wooden enclosure.

    By Amanda from Nashville, TN on March 3, 2014
    Does this unit require electricity to start in the event of a power outage?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 4, 2014

    Answer:
    This fireplace does have an electronic ignition that requires power, but there is a battery back-up that can light the fireplace in the event of a power outage.

    By Chuck from Orlando, FL on November 27, 2012
    I have purchased a home with this fireplace already installed. Can this type of fireplace be cased-in, or does it have to be a minimum clearance all around?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 28, 2012

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, the WHD31 must be mounted on the wall and cannot be recessed within a noncombustible surround like this picture. Please see the owner's manual for the appropriate clearances needed.

    By kelly tripp from lexingotn ky on June 21, 2012
    Shipping......curbside includes what if anything?
    how much does this weigh?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 22, 2012

    Answer:
    Curbside freight shipping is the standard method of delivery for this unit. The freight company will call 24-48 hours to schedule a delivery. They will then come out and make the drop off at the end of your driveway. It will be necessary to inspect the item for any damage, prior to signing the delivery form.

    Per the manufacturer, the shipping weight on this unit is 105 pounds.

    By Bert from Casper, WY on February 11, 2014
    This unit will be mounted on an exterior wall (total thickness of 6") with horizontal venting. What do you recommend for the termination unit?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 11, 2014

    Answer:
    The listed termination to fit this appliance is the Napoleon Direct Vent Wall Terminal/Vinyl Siding Shield - For 4 Inch x 7 Inch Venting Systems. This appliance can be clamped to the vent piping that comes with the unit.

    By Kevin E. on November 3, 2014

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, this unit requires the purchase and installation of one of the surround fronts. The unit would be incomplete without it.

    Is this a direct vent fireplace? Is the price the same to use propane fuel?

    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on February 12, 2014

    Answer:
    This is indeed a direct vent gas fireplace with a solid glass panel in front of the flame. It utilizes coaxial (pipe-within-a-pipe) venting, which you can see in the "Venting Components" tab on this item page. If you are installing the fireplace on an exterior wall, it does include 20" of rigid vent pipe and a firestop for venting through the wall. All you would need to add would be the horizontal termination cap for the outside wall. If you are using propane, there is an additional $42.00 charge for the conversion kit needed. This is shown in the drop-down menu for "Choose Fuel Type" under the pricing information on this page.

    Can a TV be placed above this fireplace?
    By Tyler M. on June 30, 2014

    Answer:
    Yes, though please be advised that the manufacturer of your television would likely void the warranty if you install it in such a manner. Likewise, the manufacturer of this fireplace does not list suitable clearances to a television due to the impracticality of testing it under various models. We recommend recessing the television back into the wall so that this fireplace projects out in front of it to minimize the heat on the television. Please also refer to the mantel clearances for a guide.

    What is the turn-down ratio, or what is the minimum input BTU with this turned all the way down?
    By eFireplaceStore on May 21, 2014

    Answer:
    This particular unit uses an electronic gas valve, which does not have the ability to be adjusted. As such, the BTU input rating remains at a constant 20k BTUs.

    How do I get this installed? How does it tie into the gas from my home? What is the cost of the installation? Who would I call to install this product?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on January 28, 2014

    Answer:
    This fireplace is a wall-mounted unit that is hung much like a large television set. It connects to either a natural gas or propane gas line (specific models are made for each fuel type, please see the drop-down menu below the pricing information). Please see
    the owner's manual for installation and gas line connection instructions. Installation costs vary widely in different areas of the country. For your reference, you may use the NFI (National Fireplace Institute) website to locate a local certified installer in your area. Their website is www.nficertified.org. Once there, just click on the "Public" link on the right hand side and enter your zip code. We recommend calling a few technicians and having the installation job quoted per your application.

    I am having a wall of reclaimed wood installed and would like to hang this fireplace on it. Is that possible?

    By Will M. on October 4, 2016

    Answer:
    There should be no issue with this, so long as the venting and installation instructions for this fireplace are followed. This information may be viewed on pages 8-27 of the installation manual.

    By Curtis Campbell from Boston, MA on January 9, 2017
    I have this fireplace (as pictured) with the surround, but I would like to put a TV above it. Is there a heat deflector I can purchase so the TV doesn't damaged?
    By Owen on January 9, 2017

    Answer:
    You can get a vent hood to help deflect the heat into the room, from above the unit. Although, you would still want to maintain the clearances as listed in the owners manual.

    By Paul from WA on April 14, 2014
    I am about to order this unit for a new construction. Will it come complete with venting components for going through the wall or do I need to order additional components?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on April 14, 2014

    Answer:
    This fireplace does include a 20" rigid vent pipe and a firestop for passing through the wall. If that is enough for your application (a straight-out rear vent), then all you would need to add is the GD222 Napoleon Horizontal Terminal.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    While providing a striking centerpiece for my living room, I have also noticed that this fireplace can easily heat even large spaces remarkably well.


    Great little fireplace

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    We bought this fireplace during a remodel of our living room, which had contained a rather large two-sized fireplace that was too big for the room. My husband and I installed this, though it's not an easy task. We framed in a new wall with an inner space of 11 inches for the vertical venting. We ordered the flexible venting along with the fireplace, which worked fine, but was a bit difficult to manipulate around corners in the attic. All in all, it took three full weekends from framing to installation to turning it on for testing and curing the sealant. It was worth it. It looks beautiful and takes up very little space in the room. It puts out a surprising amount of heat for the size, perhaps because of the ceramic glass. The only negative is that the installation instructions are not the best, probably because they assume a "real" installer is putting the fireplace in. It's also not easy figuring out what venting parts to purchase. The fireplace comes with some small venting parts which may be sufficient if venting horizontally through a wall. I was only able to use the heat shield (for keeping attic insulation away from the venting) because I was venting vertically through the attic. Don't forget to budget for the venting. It cost an extra $500 to get all the parts we needed for venting 15' vertically with a couple of bends. You won't regret purchasing this fireplace. It's a quality item.
    Pros:
    Appearance. Space conservation. No "fake" logs. Modern.
    Cons:
    Installation instructions, especially concerning what venting components are needed. Had to do a lot of extra research to figure this out.
