Can you install a natural gas regulator at the bottom of the gas fireplace by the gas valve?
A gas regulator should be installed on the line prior to the valve. I have seen it installed in that lower compartment area, yes. You should check with local code enforcement as well to ensure that meets local code.
Replacing a thermocouple is usually simple but it does vary in difficulty a bit from application to application. For that reason, and to ensure the compatibility of a replacement thermocouple, we recommend contacting a local plumber, gas fitter or HVAC professional.

Vent free gas systems operate at a 99.99% efficiency rating, so the only byproduct of combustion is water vapor and carbon dioxide. Because of this, it is not required that venting be used with a vent free fireplace or log set.
I recently purchased an Empire DVD-36-FP30N from you. I'm installing in carpeted basement with concrete underneath carpet. I assume I cut the carpet away before installing fireplace unit and the unit sits directly on the concrete floor. Correct?
