    Can this fireplace be vented? I am reading that the vent-less units put out a lot of moisture in the room.

    Will this work at 6,000 foot elevation?
    1 Answer
    Vent free products do not work well over 4500 Ft ASL due to the oxygen depletion sensor

    Is this product compatible with propane?
    1 Answer
    This is strictly a firebox, so compatibility with propane will depend on the log set you purchase for the box.

    Bill M.
    from Mokena asked:
    November 3, 2016
    Can this fireplace be mounted in a wall with a 55" TV above it (without damaging the TV)?
    1 Answer
    For this type of installation, I strongly suggest installation of a mantel that is at least as deep as the television to protect it. Vent free fireplaces release a large amount of heat to the area directly above them and they are prone to damaging sensitive electronics without a mantel or shelf of some sort.

    What is the heating area this unit can heat up?
    1 Answer
    This item is a vent-free firebox only and does not include a burner or logs. A ventless log set will need to be purchased separately, and the heated area will depend on the BTU rating of that set.
