    Will this bring fresh air into the home at all to combat oxygen depletion?  Does it just feed the flame?
    1 Answer
    This accessory is designed to be installed on the vent-free fireboxes to aid in fresh air for combustion and decrease the chance of oxygen depletion in the living area.

    I've got a VFP42FB2CL-2 ventless unit. Would there be any purpose in adding this to my unit? Effect on efficiency or fumes?
    1 Answer
    The VFA2 air kit will aid in feeding the firebox with combustion air, but if you detect odor from the fumes, this will remain largely unchanged.

    I have a empire model UFYR-18RW0-1 22000 btu. Because we get odors in the House we want to install a vent kit. Will this solve the problem. The fireplace is installed in a wall but it could be axcessed from outside by removing the siding. Want to know if this can be done since it is installed and finished on the inside
    1 Answer
    The odor you are smelling is from particles in the air that float into the flame and burn up. Since the unit is vent free, there is no where for the venting of fumes but into the home. Only changing to a vented unit will relieve that small you are detecting.

    How is the cold air on a winter day prevented from continuously blowing into house via the duct and firebox? And if so how does it operate?
    1 Answer
    The fresh air kit will arrive with a handle that you push to open and pull to close, so you would simply close the flow of air into the box while the log set or fireplace is not in use.

    from Fernandina Beach FL asked:
    January 6, 2018
    So the fresh air is pulled into the gap between the two boxes (Empire vent-free firebox) and then enters the room through the top louvers with the heated air? Correct? If so then the heated air coming out of the firebox louvers would be at a lower temperature with the fresh air kit slide assembly open vs closed?
    1 Answer
    Since the optional blower would only cycle on with surface temperatures in a range high enough for the thermodisc to snap closed and activate the blower and the air brought in via the fresh air kit would enter into the combustion chamber and not the air space for blower circulation, the heated convection air produced by the blower should not be affected.
