    Douglas K
    from Glenmont, OH asked:
    May 2, 2018
    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.

    from Manchester, CT asked:
    April 21, 2018
    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.

    from albuquerque, nm asked:
    March 26, 2018
    How do the gas logs get oxygen to burn in the fireboxes?
    1 Answer
    On vent free set, from the room they are installed in, unless an outside air kit is installed.

    February 20, 2018
    Can I get glass doors with this?
    1 Answer
    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.

    November 15, 2017
    How much heat will this product produce and how large of an area will it heat?
    1 Answer
    This is just a firebox. It would require a log set to produce heat.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
