    Is this unit available with a 10,000 BTU burner for bedroom installation? Thank you.
    1 Answer
    Yes, you can get the same Vail 26" vent-free fireplace with a 10,000 BTU burner, but the mantel cabinet will need to be added separately.

    Where does the gas line enter - underneath the unit or on the side of the mantel? Where is the shutoff for the gas?
    1 Answer
    The gas line enters on the right-hand side of the fireplace, as illustrated on Page 13 of the owner's manual. The shutoff for the gas line should be connected in accordance to the instructions on Page 11 of that same manual. You will need to use the type of shut-off valve according to which gas line connection fits your application.

    Do you have a picture of this fireplace with the white mantel?

    December 11, 2011
    I bought one of these fireplaces 3 years ago and I am looking for a part that is the gas valve. I also would like to know if there is a part that we could purchase that would allow us to plug it in to the the electric outlet to turn it on and off. Right now all we have is the remote, and it only lets us turn it on or off, there is no temp adjustment , and my mom is using up batteries to fast. We are thinking there was probably some part I should have bought when I bought the fireplace. I have the part number for the valve, and also the serial # and everything. Just tell us if you can help us and what you would need to know. The fireplace is in Arizona,
    1 Answer
    I apologize that you are having trouble with your fireplace. We can most certainly order replacement parts for the unit. We do also offer wall mounted or hand held thermostats that can better control the unit. A few of those models do offer a 110V receiver that does not use batteries for operation. The only other option would be to use a simple on/off switch that uses the millivoltage that is generated by the unit itself. Please let us know the exact model number and serial number of the unit. We will be happy to look into parts pricing for you.

    A Great Addition to Our Home
    We recently purchased a ventless propane fireplace for our new sunroom so that we could enjoy it all year round. The Empire 26 was a great choice and looks great on the raised platform; we prepared to feature it as the focal point of the room. The only disappointments are that it was not equipped with a remote and the flame control level shows little difference from low to high, making the flame pretty much the same all the time. All in all, we are very happy with our purchase, the ease of the transaction, the speedy well-packaged shipping to the door, and the quality of the product.

    Beautiful
    As always from this store, my 2nd fireplace is as great as my first for this house. My total purchases for 2 homes is 4. I'm very very satisfied with the fireplaces.
    ProsEasy installation. Customer service great. Whenever I needed assistance the help desk was there with the answers, including when I misplaced my instructions for programming, they walked me through it. Two of my friends have made purchases as well. They, too, are very pleased.

    A quality gas log fire place
    Easy to order from experienced technicians. Fed Ex delivery man was great. He delivered created box to carport to inspect, well packed,then helped my neighbor carry 200 lb. fire place inside house. Easy to put together. Recommend brick liner and remote. Technician will walk you through any questions. This fire pace is beautiful. The wood mantel and logs look great. I helped a friend buy a gas log insert in town at a local dealer and my fire place looks just as good as the $3,000 unit and easier to install. The Empire Vail 26" looks just like the picture but better in your own house. The gas logs look real and the flame is beautiful. The logs are 20" in the front and 16" in the back of the fire place. Rated five stars because it is.
    ProsEasy from the get go, to the end. The technicians are there for you if you need help.
    ConsNone

    Exceptional Service
    Recently ordered a new gas vent-free fireplace for my kitchen. I did a lot of research and eFireplaceStore offered the greatest selection and prices. I placed my order on a Sunday and by Wednesday, 3 days later I had my new fireplace. The item was packed well and I had no problem assembling and installing the unit. I ordered a great amount of items online and sometimes companies can't promise what they say. eFireplaceStore delivered on all that they said they would. Great experience.

    Couldn't be more pleased
    The fireplace came shipped by fed ex. The driver was most helpful and we unloaded in minutes. The installation was easy and we where as warm as a pop tart in minutes. This is a product I would recommend for any need to bring more heat to a area. Just need to add the fan and we will be set.
    ProsQuick shipping easy to assemble
    ConsWe should have ordered the fan with the fireplace

    I absolutely love my new fireplace
    My husband of 59 years and I moved to our little lake house recently. We had wall heaters and even though they kept us warm, we were not happy with the look. We wanted our livingroom to be more inviting and it really is now. This fireplace makes it look like something out of a magazine. It takes a lot to impress someone my age, but this really does it. The customer service department were a great help to me. I'm so thankful I found this company and this wonderful fireplace.
    ProsIt looks just like it was built in.
    ConsNone

    Great addition
    Am really enjoying my vent free fireplace. It was not difficult to put together although some of the directions were a little confusing. Puts out a great deal of heat, without a blower.

    I did receive the fireplace earlier than expected that was good. Nothing was damaged. It works great. Finished product looks good.

    We love it!
    We have had the fireplace for a little over two weeks, and we absolutely love it. It was incredibly easy to install and set up. It easily and reliably turns on when the temperature changes. The fire is attractive and very, very warm while the top mantle stays cool. It is very attractive with nice details and decorative touches.
    ProsWell constructed. Attractive. Reliable. Warm!
    ConsNone that we can think of at this time.

    Perfect addition!
    We bought this as a gift for my son's family. It was installed earlier this week and already in use. They love the fireplace. Not only is it beautiful but it is very functional. I am sure they will love it for many years to come. It arrived within a few days after it was ordered. We are 100% pleased with the whole process.

    Vent-Free Natural Gas Fireplace
    Very nice keeps the house nice & cozy

    Heats Like Crazy
    After researching vent free gas fireplaces for a couple of months I chose this one. I wanted white and one that was not too big or too small and this is just the right size. I have a small 50 ish cottage and by the end of the day the low setting is heating the whole house. The electricity went out for about a hour and it sure was nice to have heat! I had professionals install it so I can't comment on that issue.
    ProsBeautiful, simple design and a nice size. It looks like a quality product that beongs in the house.
    ConsWould like the flame to be a bit higher sometimes but it really doesn't distract from pleasure.

    Beautiful Fireplace
    We ordered this fireplace on line. It was a little scary with a large purchase as this. We had a perfect experience with delivery in 4 days, the entire order including thermostat was the right one for our fireplace thanks to the man who called us to tell me the correct one to order. (Tyler). We had it installed and are all set for the first frost in Maryland. Thanks efireplacestore. BB
    Prosvery impressive for the size, Nutmeg is a beautiful color.
