    from Sonora, CA asked:
    April 8, 2018
    I just want to confirm that this is an actual firebox and not just an insert. How many BTU's is it?
    1 Answer
    This is a firebox, but I believe there may be a misunderstanding of the terminology for certain products advertised on our site. A "firebox" is purchased when you intend to also purchase a set of ventless gas logs. Subsequently, no firebox would have a Btu rating. If you were looking for a ventless gas fireplace, these products are not allowed in the State of California.

    1 Answer
    No, this unit is not suitable for use in California, as indoor vent-free gas appliances are not permitted in your state. We would recommend a direct vent gas fireplace instead, and we have a few that are similar to this Breckenridge box. Please see some suggestions below.

    Is this lp gas? Does it come with a trim kit?
    1 Answer
    While optional trim is available under "Popular Accessories for this Item" on the product page for the item in question, please note that this is a firebox and not a gas fireplace. Anything advertised as a firebox will require a separately purchased compatible ventless gas log set. As such, it does not have a gas type.

    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.

    I have a ventless gas log set that is emitting very little heat. How can I increase the heat output?
    1 Answer
    This may help with heat output if your current fireplace has no damper available. Otherwise, the only assistance using this fireplace could add is that you can install a blower in this firebox, which will push the heat out quicker.

    1 Answer
    This is simply a "firebox" and any firebox advertised on our site will not arrive with any gas log burner or ignition system. The ventless gas logs of your choosing will need to be ordered separately. If you are looking for a complete system that includes a ventless gas burner and ignition system, please view our selection of Vent Free Fireplaces. You will need to select your gas type and "standard fireplace" from the filters on the left-hand side of this page.

    Sandy
    from Chapmanville, WV asked:
    January 11, 2016
    Does this gas firebox have a blower or fan? How big of an area does it heat?
    1 Answer
    Because this is a firebox only, the log set you install will have the deciding factor on the amount of area heated. This box can house most 18 inch vent free log sets, which usually have a BTU output between 30k and 35k. This is sufficient to heat 800 to 1000 square feet if the box is centrally located and in a warm climate. This model will not include a blower, but the Empire FBB-5 Automatic Single-Speed Blower - For Breckenridge Fireboxes may be purchased separately.

    from Early, IA asked:
    March 1, 2015
    We are planning to build a 16x20 addition to our home. We want a natural gas fireplace that gives off a lot of heat. The addition will be open to the rest of the house. What would you recommend?
    1 Answer
    Either a vent free or direct vent gas fireplace would definitely be the way to go. Both do a great job of heating the space without pulling heat from the room (like a wood burning fireplace does). The vent free option would be much easier to install as there is no venting or chimney to worry about. However, some people find they are sensitive to the odors and humidity given off by a vent free unit. The direct vent option would be bit more costly in both up front cost and installation. But, it is completely sealed off from the room and as such provides efficient clean heat.

Besides the logs and the materials for branching from my main gas line in my crawl space, what other materials are required / needed? What is the average install time in hours for this unit not including the gas line branching?
    1 Answer
    Besides the gas line and the burner/log set, you would not need any other materials for the unit to operate. It can be finished with a noncombustible veneer of your choosing or it can be built flush with the surrounding drywall.

    Would this work on an inside wall? I want to hang a flat screen TV over it. Would it need some kind of mantel?
    1 Answer
    The product could be installed against or within an inside wall, but the wall thickness will need to be increased to house the unit or an enclosure built around it. I recommend having the television recessed into the wall or protected with a mantel shelf to keep excessive heat from damaging it.

    Diana
    from Perrinton, MI asked:
    July 21, 2014
    What kind of special materials are needed when installing this, such as special fireboard to surround it? Could we then create a tile or fancy routered wood frame around it? Then we'd like to put a flat screen with shelf for a DVD player and dish equipment above that. How much space, up and down, would we need?
    1 Answer
    For installation of this firebox, no special framing materials are required as long as the clearance requirements outlined in the owner's manual are followed. You could indeed utilize a decorative tiling or woodwork, such as a mantel to finish off the installation, but the louvers at the top and bottom of the firebox must not be covered allowing for adequate air flow through the fireplace chassis. The clearance requirements to electronics are not outlined as clearly due to this not being tested by the manufacturer, but I would stick with the clearance requirements to a mantel when installing electronics above a fireplace. Ideally, the items would be set into the wall above the firebox so as to avoid as much heat exposure as possible.

    Breckenridge VTFD32FB0L Deluxe Vent-Free Louvered Gas Firebox
    We built a fireplace in an open area with high ceilings and with this firebox all the entire area keeps warm and cozy. Firebox construction is very heat-resistant and safe.

    great for that extra heat
    Fantastic deal for my distant master bed room. A person with some carpentry skills can put this heater (gas log included) in a weekend. The price is right on.
