    Does this unit come with a blower?

    This unit does not have a blower as standard. However, the Empire FBB-4 Variable-Speed Fireplace Blower with Temperature Switch - FBB-4 can be installed in order to induce convection.

    What else do I need for this unit to make it more complete?
    1 Answer
    The unit is complete as it comes, but any of the optional products in the accessory tab on the item page can be used with this model. The ceramic liner is a popular item to give the unit a more realistic appearance. The blower is handy for circulating air to the far reaches of a larger room or for heating a room up quickly. A remote control or wall switch eases the use of the unit and prevents you from having to manually operate the fireplace from the control valve behind the bottom louvers.

    from Boston asked:
    November 24, 2013
    Can I still use this for heating if there is a power outage?
    1 Answer
    Yes. This unit utilizes an ODS pilot system that has a standing flame. As such, it generates its own electricity and does not require outside voltage to operate.
