    Does this require a blower for installation? Are there additional parts needed for installation that are not included with the this firebox?
    1 Answer
    No, none of the Breckenridge vent-free fireboxes require a blower; this is an optional accessory that can be added if desired. None of the Breckenridge units require any additional parts for safe operation of a suitably-sized ventless gas log set, apart from the burner/log set you choose to install inside it, of course.

    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.
