Can you put this fireplace outside?

Does it have a blower on it ? How does it vent ?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 1, 2013
Answer:Because this is a wall mounted, gel fuel unit, it is largely meant for ambiance. As such, it does not have an available flower system. Gel fuel primarily consists of alcohol. As such, it burns very cleanly and does not require the fireplace to have a venting system installed.

Can this be put into a recessed area of a wall, or does it have to hang on the outside of the wall?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 20, 2013
Answer:This unit must be mounted directly on a wall surface, primarily for cooling reasons. I do not recommend recessing it, as it has not been tested in this way.

What insulation material may I use to block cold air seeping in from the bottom of my gas fireplace? It is a Heat N Glow. Is unlaced fiberglass adequate? What temperature does the firebox reach during use?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 5, 2014
Answer:Unfaced fiberglass is indeed the preferred product to use when sealing off a space from air intrusion. Internal firebox temperatures will vary widely with the BTU output of the unit. Gas units can reach between 350 to 750, depending on the unit.
