    I have an Empire DVP42FP30P-4 fireplace. I'm trying to find something to deflect the heat away from the mantle above it. Will the Empire VBH-42-BL work on my fireplace? How is it attached? Thank you.
    1 Answer
    This hood is listed for the ventfree Breckenridge models and there is no hood listed in your model's literature. You can, however, use the Surface Mount Hood above your fireplace opening.

    I have a 42" Heatilator Dakota 42-B outdoor fireplace that only has a 7/8" hood. I'm trying to protect a TV mounted above it. Will this fit that unit?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, we do not carry a hood that would fit your unit that would be deeper than what you have. I apologize for any inconvenience.

    Hi. I am trying to find a replacement hood for our fireplace and wanted to see if you were able to help me make sure that it would work based on the model type. Currently ours is brass and we want to change it to black. There are also 4 trim strips that we wanted to replace as well. The fireplace is a majestic model G336N Serial no: 350019458. Thanks for the help!!

    Do you carry a deflector that will work on a Tahoe Direct Vent - Luxury 42 Fireplace?
    1 Answer
    This model does not list a hood for the front of the face, so you will need to look at a surface mount hood to go into the wall above the firebox.

    Can this also be used to protect a TV above the fireplace?
    1 Answer
    A fireplace hood can definitely help to deflect the heat away from an item above the fireplace opening. It is also suggested to install a mantel. Please note that some electronics' warranties are void if placed above a heating appliance. Please consult your manual or manufacturer.

    How does this hood mount? Is it adjustable?
    1 Answer
    This hood attaches directly to Empire's 42" Breckenridge Deluxe, Premium, and Select fireboxes; it is not adjustable.

    What are the dimensions of this hood? How does it mount?
    1 Answer
    Per our supplier, this hood measures 42" across and projects roughly 4.5 - 5" out. It is a lintel mount hood, meaning you would anchor it to your firebox with screws going vertically upward into the lintel of the firebox. The hood is made specifically for Empire's Breckenridge vent-free fireboxes, so unless you have that model, there is no guarantee that this hood would work for you.

    How does this Fireplace hood mount? How far does it stick out?
    1 Answer
    This replacement hood mounts in place of the Breckenridge's standard hood. There are mounting screws on the inside top and sides of the firebox's perimeter. This hood extends 2" further than the standard Breckenridge hood.
