    How many BTUs does this unit generate?
    1 Answer
    Zero, that is a firebox alone. It would be paired with a log set that would produce the heat.

    Does this have a glass front?
    1 Answer
    No, this is a vent-free gas firebox and does not offer a glass front or optional glass doors, as air must be able to get in and out of the box for combustion. Please note also that this item is a firebox only and does not include a burner or log set.

    Dan
    from KY asked:
    October 21, 2015
    Are there other blowers or better, thermostatic blowers that can be used this Empire Breckenridge VFD42FBOL Deluxe vent-free louvered gas firebox? If so, what they?
    1 Answer
    Empire offers the FBB5 which is a single speed automatic blower featuring a thermostatic switch which is to be installed on the firebox. This allows the blower to automatically start once the firebox reaches a preset temperature. You may also add the Variable Speed Control to the blower allowing the user to vary the speed of the blower while in operation.

    Can you operate this firebox without the liner? I am putting propane ventless logs in it.

    Ken Hatfield
    from Palm Springs, CA asked:
    November 7, 2012
    Does this come with an electric ignitor? It looks like there is a flip-down lid for venting on the top section. What is the flap?
    1 Answer
    This product is actually a vent-free firebox only and must be equipped with a log set of your choosing. There are several manufacturers of log sets that offer an electronic ignitor rather than a standing pilot. This unit is completely sealed and cannot be vented. It does have several metal standoffs that are built onto the top of the unit, which maintain proper clearance to combustibles. The unit will also come with a deflector hood which will push heat away from a wooden mantel.

    What is the inside of the fire box made of and does it have a brick look to it? Is there a blower available for this item?
    1 Answer
    The inside of the firebox is made of sheet metal and it does not come with brick panels, but you have a choice of three different optional brick liner kits that can be found in the "Accessories" tab on the item page. This tab is located to the right of the "Item Description" tab directly below the picture. Yes, there is a blower available for this model, the Empire FBB5 blower, which is also available in the "Accessories" tab.

    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.
