from PA asked:
July 14, 2017
What is the weight of this unit? The maximum heat output and minimum heat output shows the same thing. Does this mean there is no adjustment of heat output? I am afraid of this putting out too much heat and of not being able to leave it on for long periods.
This fireplace weighs 87 pounds and the fireplace has a BTU output of between 25-32,000 BTU in natural gas and 23-32,000 BTU in liquid propane. Please note that ventless systems should never be left on for more than about 3 hours at a time and while the flame height is indeed adjustable with this model, the Hi/Lo knob may be difficult to access in order to make this adjustment. Plus, the included remote will only turn the burner flame off and on.
