    Homeowners can set this appliance up either as a zero-clearance fireplace or as an insert in an existing fireplace because of its vent-free nature. That vent-free character also contributes to the fact that the burner is 99% efficient, making it an excellent auxiliary heat source. There's even a built-in oxygen depletion sensor that shuts off the entire system if the oxygen level gets low, creating really safe, stable operation.

    You can get a great fireplace a lot of places. You can get a great-looking heating appliance lots of places, too. You'll be hard-pressed, however, to find a better combination of form, function, and value than you'll find in this user-friendly heating appliance.

    Enrico

    Cathy
    from Rustburg, VA asked:
    March 18, 2016
    Can you turn the flame level up and down of this Empire gas fireplace? Is there a remote included?
    1 Answer
    The control valve does have a variable regulator that will adjust the flame height, although the location of the regulator means that removal of the fascia is necessary to make such an adjustment. A remote is not standard, but optional remotes will work with this model.

    Michelle
    from RI asked:
    November 3, 2014
    What are the measurement restrictions from the ceiling? Can this unit be set into regular drywall?
    1 Answer
    There must be a minimum of 26 inches of space between the top of the fireplace opening and the ceiling. The fireplace can indeed be recessed into a wooden enclosure with drywall facing, as long as the framing dimensions are met.

    Slate
    from Huntsville, AL asked:
    September 25, 2012
    Is there a maximum height the fireplace can be installed from the floor?
    1 Answer
    There is not. As long as the specified distance of 26" is maintained to the ceiling, the unit can be installed at any height on the interior wall. My only recommendation would be to place the unit at a height where it will still be easily serviceable.

    Provides warmth and style to finished basement
    We opted for this ventless fireplace when remodeling our basement - instead of adding other heat source and it was the perfect solution. It adds wonderful ambience while heating the whole room very fast.
    By John from Red Hook on February 17, 2016
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    Easy to install, works great; needs some attention to detail.
    I liked this model for its overall design and its price point. Customer service was helpful in ensuring I was ordering the right options, etc. My contractor was a bit stymied by the less-than-clear electrical drawings but he got it installed and it is up and running in about 1.5 hours total including doing some rough carpentry in the space it was installed in to. My only criticism of the unit itself is that the surround should be constructed to a higher spec with fewer tolerances on the joints/joins/bends.
    ProsLooks and works great. Puts out quite a bit of heat! We are happy.
    ConsSee my concerns regarding the surround's construction.
