    Can this ventless gas fireplace be used in a screened porch?
    1 Answer
    This firebox is intended for indoor use and not in high moisture environments. The Carol Rose outdoor firebox from Empire would be a choice that will not fail prematurely due to corrosion.

    Can you put glass doors on this firebox?
    1 Answer
    No, there are no glass doors available for this model. This is because it is a vent-free gas firebox and air must be able to circulate in and out and around the firebox.

    How many BTU's does it have and does it come with a remote control?


    1 Answer
    This vent-free firebox does not include a burner or log set, so there is no BTU rating, as that will be determined by the log set you choose to install inside it (purchased separately). The log set and burner configuration you choose will also dictate whether or not a remote control is included.

    What are the inside dimensions?
    1 Answer
    The inside area of this firebox measures 36" wide in the front, 29 3/16" wide in the back, 16 1/2" deep and 24" high in the front and 20" high in the back. These dimensions decrease a bit if you add an optional decorative liner, so certain log sets will not fit if you add one of those kits.

    Does this unit come with all of the mechanicals necessary for gas and electric hook up?
    1 Answer
    This is a full vent-free gas firebox ready for installation in a framed enclosure, but please note there is no burner or log set included with this box. You can use any ventless gas log set that fits inside -- this box takes most 24" sets. As for the electricity, the box has an optional blower fan that must be purchased separately, if desired, and you would need to run the electricity to the framed enclosure for installation.

    Can I get glass doors with this?

    No they are not an option on this unit. Vent free units, like this one, do not have glass door options as it is the only way the unit gets the required combustion air it needs to burn.

    from Phoenix, AZ. asked:
    July 2, 2017
    Our property sits at approximately 6800 feet elevation. Will this model perform well at that elevation using propane gas?
    1 Answer
    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.

    from CA asked:
    December 27, 2013
    Are glass doors included?
    1 Answer
    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.

    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 Answer
    This unit 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. The Breckenridge VFD36FB0L Deluxe Vent-Free Louvered Gas Firebox does come with a screen.
