    Our property sits at approximately 6800 feet elevation. Will this model perform well at that elevation using propane gas?
    1 Answers
    If you were to purchase and install this firebox and any number of corresponding ventless gas logs that would work with this firebox, the gas log set would likely not perform well. Ventless gas systems will not operate without issue at elevations above 4500'. A much better model to consider is the Empire DVD36FP70N Tahoe Deluxe Direct Vent Fireplace.

    What are the BTUs for this unit?
    1 Answers
    This unit is a firebox, so the BTU's will depend on the log set you install in this unit.

    from NV asked:
    March 21, 2016
    Does the hood of this Empire Firebox have to be used? I plan to have 7" to 8" tall ceramic tile above the unit. Another brand talks about venting room/attic. This unit's instructions does not. I did not want to put vents in. Will I have a problem? I plan to have a stand-alone 9ft x 9ft x 2ft wall placed in the middle of a 640sqft "great-room". The fireplace will be centered on that wall surrounded by tile and raised up 6 inches.
    1 Answers
    This will indeed be a fine installation for a product such as this. The unit needs no venting and will not require anything beyond the framed opening to house the chassis. If you are planning on tiling around the opening of the unit, you may consider using the Empire Breckenridge Deluxe Vent-Free Flush Gas Firebox with Traditional Brick Ceramic Liner - 36 Inch. The louvers on the other model cannot be covered, but the smooth face on this one can. The hood can also be removed if needed.

    Will a set of 30 inch Flint Hill gas logs fit into this Empire Breckenridge VFD36FBOL Deluxe vent-free louvered gas firebox?
    1 Answers
    The Breckenridge firebox in question has a middle width that exceeds the requirement for the 30 inch Flint Hill log set. As such, they can be installed in this box.

    Is this Empire Breckenridge VFD36FBOL vent-free firebox set up to use natural gas or LP?
    1 Answers
    This is just a firebox and a log set of your choosing would need to be purchased separately. It can be used with most 24 inch natural gas or propane vent free log sets.

    Are glass doors included or do I need to purchase them separately?
    1 Answers
    This unit does not offer glass doors as an option. Because it is vent free, it requires room air for combustion, which glass doors would inhibit. However, there are several styles of operable screen doors in the accessory section for this item. They are able to be added separately to enhance the look of the unit.

    What size fireplace will match my fireplace box, model VFD 36 FBOL?
    1 Answers
    This firebox is designed to house either an 18 or 24 inch ventless gas log set. The unit itself must be installed into a framed wood opening. Framing dimensions for the unit are listed in the features on the item page.

    Nick
    from Detroit asked:
    January 3, 2013
    I am looking at this firebox. I have a couple of friends with ventless log sets that have put them directly into an existing fireplace, leaving the flue shut for operation but using the existing fireplace as the firebox. What is the purpose of this versus that type of design?
    1 Answers
    This vent-free firebox is intended for use in situations where you have no existing fireplace (a brick/masonry or wood-burning manufactured unit that has been tested and listed for use with gas logs) in which to install a ventless log set. Obviously, this firebox cannot be used for anything other than a ventless log set.

    What is the difference between Breckenridge models VFD36FBOL and VFD36FB2DL? I'm looking at putting one in a new home.
    1 Answers
    The only difference between those two models is that the VFD36FB2DL includes the traditional brick ceramic fiber liner for the inside of the firebox. This liner is not included with the VFD36FB0L (but it can be added later as a separate purchase.) Please note that neither of these fireboxes include the vent-free gas logs and burner needed for operation. You can see our selection of ventless gas logs here.

    October 5, 2012
    The picture shown has a gas log set in it. It also shows a hood and a brick liner. What comes with this model if no options are selected?
    1 Answers
    This model of firebox will include the black louvers and hood that are shown, but does not include the log set or the brick liner. The entire Breckenridge line of fireboxes are meant to contain a properly sized model of vent free logs. However, these must be purchased separately. While most models of Breckenridge have some version of liner installed, this model does not. The boxes that have a liner included will state so in the item description or title on the item page.

    Does this Firebox ( VFD36FBOL) come with any type of Ceramic liner or do you have to purchase separately?
    1 Answers
    This firebox does not come standard with any ceramic liner. The options for liner are listed in the "Accessories" tab on this page and you can choose any of those. These liners are not required, and if you purchase this firebox without adding of those options, you can still install and operate a ventless log set inside this unit safely.

    How many btu's does this unit put out & how many square feet does it heat? does it come with a screen or logs?
    1 Answers
    The Breckenridge VFD36FB0L Deluxe Vent-Free Louvered Gas Firebox that you inquired about does not come with a log set or burner, and depending on what kind of log set and burner you would purchase to go with it, the BTUs and heating area would vary. For an idea of what kind of gas logs that would work with this firebox, enter the dimensions of the firebox (36" FW x 33" RW x 19" D)into our gas log calculator (located on our Gas Logs Page). From here, you will be given a list of gas log sets that will fit into this firebox. Click on each set to see more specific information regarding BTU input/output and additional information. The Breckenridge VFD36FB0L Deluxe Vent-Free Louvered Gas Firebox does come with a screen.
