    I was told that California will not let us use a vent free propane stove or fireplace. Is this true or were they just trying to sell us their kind of stove?
    1 Answer
    Ventless systems are indeed not allowed in the state of California.

    Does this have glass doors?
    1 Answer
    It does not. Because this is a vent free unit, it will only have a safety screen. This allows heat transfer to occur between the unit and the room.

    Can this fireplace be used with butane gas?
    1 Answer
    Butane is heavier than propane and this appliance is not listed to be converted to any other gas. All vent free appliances are non-convertible.

    How long will the unit run on a 100 lb tank of propane?
    1 Answer
    This fireplace has a BTU rating of 20,000, so it would take about four and a half hours of operation at maximum input for it to use one gallon of propane. As such, it would take over 450 hours of operation at maximum to deplete the 100 gallon tank.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
